About MLS® and realtor.ca
Realtor.ca or the MLS® (Multiple Listing Service), is a member based service website, created by and paid for by the REALTOR® members of the local real estate boards in Canada. This site is a public information site that features all the listings that are available on the market that the sellers have given listing agents permission to advertise on the site.
Your local real estate agent will sign a listing agreement with a seller and submit the listing to that particular real estate board’s interboard MLS® which can only be accessed through licensed Realtor’s®. The real estate agent can use the Realtor.ca site as an added advertising vehicle to get the listing out to as many prospective buyers as possible.
Many people rely on the Realtor.ca site but can miss out on some great real estate listings that are available when not working with a licensed real estate agent.
Some sellers prefer not to allow their listing to be advertised on the public MLS® system for privacy issues
Sometimes the system updates irregularly not allowing for a new listing listed on the real estate board’s main site to get into the public site before buyers working with an agent can see it first. Due to privacy concerns, some information is withheld which public users may find important.
