Welcome to part two of our look at the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). As mentioned in the previous blog, the MLS is great tool for staying up to date on the most current properties available for investment. Metro DC Real Estate is fast moving and you need a way to track good deals and compare them to other deals. The MLS has a host of information for doing just that.
A couple of days ago, I heard some people talking about a listing on the MLS. It seems one of them was looking to sell a nice single family home while the other was looking to buy a single family home. As I watched them do the negotiation dance, it occurred to me how much neither one of them understood the true opportunities that using the MLS brings. They really didn’t have a handle on dealing with DC real estate investments.
