MLS Listings Map — Bird’s Eye View of Real Estate for Sale

Most people are very particular about where they buy a house. Some people want to be as close to major roads as possible while others need a quiet house located far from noisy streets. A lot of home buyers select a house based on the location of their workplace or their children’s school.

There are other requirements the house must fulfill before you buy it. It should be adequately large (or small, depending on your tastes), have the right number of bathrooms and bedrooms, and it should be suitably priced. With all these variables, finding the right home use to take a long time but today, with consumer facing mls listings websites and map based search, finding the right home can take far less time.

A MLS (Multiple Listing Service) is a database of properties for sale. MLS listings contain detailed information about each property - price, area in square feet, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, location, school district, and so on. Some MLS listings sites even provide information about traffic movement near the property, and most MLS listings are accompanied by a photo of the real estate for sale.

Accelerate Your Search

An MLS listings map makes the process easier. Usually, a simple listing does not always give you a clear picture. For example, you want to purchase property on XYZ Street in a particular city and you aren’t able to find any residential property for sale on this street as you are a stranger in the city and therefore, unfamiliar with it. You do not know where to search next in order to find the right house.

Now, if you were to use an MLS site with a real estate map, you would see that while XYZ Street has no properties up for sale, PQR Street, located nearby, has two very suitable houses listed for sale. Not only that, you might be able to locate many more appropriate houses in the neighborhood, perhaps some of them offering even more features than the homes on XYZ Street.

On a detailed real estate map, the home buyer would be able to see every aspect of the property location - closest landmarks, streets, other homes for sale, and so on. Most MLS listings maps also display the prices and relative number of properties for sale. For example, a small circle indicates fewer houses, a large circle drawn on the map shows where you find the most real estate for sale. Similarly, color-coding according to price (light colored for lower priced houses, darker colors indicating more expensive property) helps the buyer understand the circumstances of the local real estate market.

A MLS listings map is a great tool to find the right property, particularly when you do not know the neighborhood too well or need more information about property prices in a given area.
