The SOURCEMLSbadge means that the real estate property information you are viewing has been supplied directly from the multiple listing service (MLS).  Why is that important?  Real Estate Brokers and Agents are required to directly, promptly and completely enter information about their property listings into their local MLS. 

MLS data is the most timely and most accurate information 
obtainable for properties being displayed on the Internet!



In order for a website publisher to be granted permission to use the SOURCEMLSbadge, they must meet the following criteria:


·         All data displayed pertaining to the listing must come directly from the MLS

·         The listing database must be updated from the MLS at least every twenty-four (24) hours

·         The source of the MLS listing data must be identified

·         The date/time the listing database was last updated must be displayed

·         Data displayed may not be modified by the publisher 

·         No MLS listing data may be reused or repurposed 


To be sure you are getting timely, accurate information always look for 
SOURCEMLS™ when you’re searching for properties on the Internet!
