Using ARMLS to Search for Homes
Searching for the right home in Arizona can be a daunting task. There are so many subdivisions and cities in the Phoenix area and Maricopa County is very large. How do you know where to start? As a longtime full-time real estate broker and past president of Arizona Regional Multiple Listing Service (ARMLS), Michelle Shelton sorts the properties in a way that people want to search.
Specializing in homes and horse properties, Michelle has sold hundreds of properties all over the Phoenix Metropolitan. People want to go to the source when searching. Many look for Arizona MLS search as opposed to using Zillow, Realtor or Redfin. This is a wise choice because these 3rd party sites pull their listings from the MLS!
What information can you see with your free AZ MLS Search?
When you are in the system where the information originates, it makes it easier to see it all.
Sometimes it is valuable to be able to see if a home was listed previously. Listing history in the MLS can be helpful to see how long the listing as actually be on the market.
Tax information is helpful information when buying a home. Although, Arizona has notoriously low taxes, it is still wise to be able to see what you will be paying Uncle Sam.
Photos, videos and supplements are all available if they were loaded into the listing. Not all Realtors advertise the same way. Some agents go all out on marketing and understand the value of exposing your home to the masses while yet others load cell phone photos and don’t include video of their listing.
