Multiple Listing Service (MLS)

The MLS is an organization with a suite of services that real estate brokers will use to provide data about properties for sale. An MLS is a suite of around 700 regional databases containing their own listings.

Each database has its own listings, requires agents to pay dues for access, and allows agents to share listings across regions — without paying dues to each one. It is widely considered the most comprehensive listing service available.
