What are Secondary Listings in the MLS?

Answer:

Secondary listings are just that, a second (or third) listing on another adjacent MLS (Multiple Listing Service).

What are Secondary Listings in the MLS?

Sometimes a seller is open to either selling or leasing their property. In such cases, a secondary listing is also an ideal solution. This will allow them to advertise the property both for sale and for rent at the same time.

Additionally,

If a home is located between two MLS areas or in a smaller one, but near a larger, more robust MLS, a seller might want their real estate listing to appear in both. It is quite common for sellers to list on both the San Antonio MLS ( SABOR ) as well as the Austin MLS ( ARBoR ) in order to increase their listing’s exposure and reach as many potential buyers as possible.

Remember:

Most real estate agents are members of only one maybe two MLS sites at the most (although some areas do have a regional MLS). Creekview is a member of every MLS in Texas. We can list your property on more than one MLS at a time. Many people have the mistaken idea that the MLS is one massive interlocking system. It’s not. There are literally over a thousand stand-alone, local MLS databases across the country. They vary in size; some are quite big, and others and quite small.

Adding a duplicate listing of your property is a $250 upgrade.”
