Comparable Sales in the MLS

Comparable Sales in the Multiple Listing Service

After a property is sold (and the transaction has been closed) the selling price is posted in the MLS, making the MLS a wonderful resource on previous home sales in the area and containing substantially more information on individual homes than could possibly be obtained from the public records.

The MLS (Multiple Listing Service) is a private resource where Realtors can list their properties available for sale. This resource is available exclusively to real estate agents who are members of the local Multiple Listing Service. Recently, the public has been able to access this resource via some internet websites.
