If you have already started to look at homes, you are probably already linked into an MLS. Just like all agents are not created equal nor are all MLS email systems. Making sure that all FSBO’s (For Sale By Owners), REO’s (foreclosed properties), Short Sales, and traditional sales is critical to ensure you never miss out on a hot listing.
