Yes, real estate agents have more in depth and more up-to-the-minute information on listings through their MLS memberships.
They provide that information to their clients to help them in the decision-making when buying or selling a home.
Do all Realtors have access to MLS?
A real estate agent must be in the employ of a real estate broker, and they can only access the MLS as an agent of that broker. Contrary to MANY answers here, you DO NOT need to be a REALTOR(R) to access the MLS in certain states, as in those states such a requirement has been found to violate antitrust regulations.
Can I have two realtors?
The short answer is yes, you can work with multiple real estate agents—under certain circumstances. Working with more than one real estate agent is fine when you haven’t signed an exclusive agreement with anyone, says Adam Aguilar, a Realtor® with Reliantra in West Toluca Lake, CA.
Does Zillow show all listings?
Listings are sent to Zillow from sources such as partners, brokers, agents, third-party “feed” providers, and in some cases, directly from an MLS. Zillow does not pull or take listings from different websites. For syndicated listings, any updates must be made directly at the listing source.
Can you have more than one realtor when buying a house?
As long as there’s no buyer-broker agreement, you can have multiple realtors show you homes.
