Your MLS® System listing will be fully visible to the local real estate agents in your area, and to the general public on the REALTOR.ca website which is available to ALL buyers worldwide.

When we say "local real estate board", we don't mean that our service is somehow limited to a local audience, we mean that our service can also include maximum exposure to your local audience, which is something that many of our competitors don't, won't, or can't offer.

ALL LISTINGS - no matter which real estate board they were loaded to, can be seen by ANYONE in the world on REALTOR.ca!



With our service, you get exposure with the buying public on Canada's largest real estate network via the REALTOR.ca website nationally, and with the real estate agents and the buyers who are working with them to locate a property on the various MLS® Systems.

Our listings are included in the new & updated MLS® System listing notifications that go out to the real estate agents and to buyers who are using the Private Client Services (PCS) system. These notifications are sent out to agents and buyers whenever new MLS® System listings are added, and when updates occur to those same listings.

Learn more about PCS - a very important element of our service.

Each province is divided into multiple real estate boards. The various boards represent the local real estate agents who practice real estate throughout the province. These boards collect dues from the agents who belong to them, making them quite territorial because there is a lot of money at stake here.

CREA

Wikipedia describes the various types of Real Estate Boards throughout Canada as:

"CREA's members are known as 'REALTORS', which means they are members of their provincial real estate association or members of both their local real estate board and CREA, depending on the province.

"A real estate agent may become a member of a local board within the CREA, which confers the agent with membership in the CREA. Local boards are represented by a provincial association within the CREA. The local boards operate the multiple listing service for their market. There are 101 real estate boards in Canada.

"Both the Multiple Listing Service or MLS trademark and the REALTOR trademark are owned by REALTOR Canada Inc, a subsidiary of CREA. Local real estate Boards or Associations operate a local database under a licensing agreement with the national association. CREA also operates the REALTOR.ca (previously MLS.ca and ICX.ca) web site.

"Property owners who do not want to fully engage the services of a REALTOR, can hire one to only list their property on the MLS system.

"In these instances, the property owner is responsible for ensuring the listing information is accurate and agrees to handle all other details of the transaction directly. The seller may have to pay a commission to the buyer's real estate agent, if the buyer uses one. Approximately 90% of real estate transactions in Canada in 2009 were conducted via the MLS system."

The act of listing a property privately on the MLS® System is often referred to as a "Mere Posting Service" (and unofficially as a "mere listing"), which is the service For Sale By Owner Inc. provides to hundreds of sellers throughout Canada each month.

We hope that the above explanation helps you to better understand what a real estate board is, and how it pertains to the act of selling a home privately on the MLS® System.
