It used to be that searching for a home or property took lots of time and legwork. These days, all a buyer really needs is access to a computer, an internet connection and a great real estate agent. The Tucson Multiple Listing Service, or the MLS, is a database that collects and displays all of the listings of properties for sale in the Tucson area. This database is available to real estate agents as well as the general public.

Using the Tucson MLS Effectively

Using the MLS allows buyers to find prospective properties on the Internet. This can dramatically cut down on the number of properties a buyer must visit before finding the right one. Many listings can be disqualified from the search based on some of the information provided in the listing itself.

Property listings should include a photo of the property in question as well as details about the property. A good listing will provide an accounting of the property's square footage, the lot size, the building material, the flooring choices, room dimensions, and a floor plan. The more information that is available, the more useful it will be to the buying process.

However, if a home is attractive but the listing is vague or incomplete, that does not necessarily mean the property will not be a great fit. The listing should provide contact information for the listing agent and the buyer or the buyer's real estate agent should investigate all of the possibilities. It's an extra step to the process, but sometimes finding the perfect home requires a little extra effort.
