Understanding the MLS, which also is called the multiple listing service and its importance to the real-estate in your market place vs. newer pop up websites promising you the same level of information. The MLS is a tool that is provided to licensed Real estate agents for listing property information and records and keeping them current in an expected time frame.

I often speak to customers and clients who often utilize 3rd party sites such as,, etc. Which is fine and they are all very useful tools. But keep in mind all these sites pull there data from the MLS. So, the challenge that I often see if current listing information on the other pages. An example of current information is if the property is still for sale or already sold sometimes isn't current.
