The Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is a database system that provides real estate professionals with detailed information on all houses for sale in a particular area. While you will be able to see information on homes for sale that are listed with the MLS, only a licensed real estate professional has access to all the detailed and proprietary information that the MLS gathers on each home.
