MLS stands for multiple listing service, and is the primary channel of communication about properties among realtors. You don't have to have a realtor to list your property when selling, but you do need to be careful if buying a listing on your own. Furthermore, even when you have a real estate agent, you want to be sure that you're paying a fixed listing fee and not a listing commission.
