MLS & Buyer Representation
As you may know, the Indiana real estate industry uses a multiple listing system (MLS.) Every property listed for sale is entered by listing agents into a singular database so that information about properties listed for sale can be shared by the real estate agent community and also by the public. Multiple listing is a benefit to buyers, sellers, and agents since it provides comprehensive historical and current information about homes listed for sale which is uniform and available to everyone.
Every real estate agent in Indiana has the ability to sell any property listed for sale whether or not he or she is the listing agent. This means any Metropolitan agent can arrange for you to see any Indiana property currently listed for sale in the MLS. A property does not have to be listed for sale with our agency for us to arrange for you to see it. When one of our agents arranges for you to view another agent's listing, this is known as cobrokering. You can view all Indiana listings right here on our site.
As a buyer, it is important for you to understand, that a real estate agent you encounter during your home search is most likely working for the seller of the property you are viewing. Buyers may engage the services of their own real estate agent or buyer representative. Just as sellers have listing agreements with brokers} buyers may enter into a buyer's agency agreement (verbally or in writing) in order to ensure that the agent working with them, is in fact, working for them, not the seller. This is a service we offer at Kincaid Realtors, and a path we strongly recommend for buyers. If you have any questions about how to engage the services of a buyer representative} please feel free to call us at 3178481118} text us at 3174319544} or send us an email with your contact information and we'll respond promptly.
