Before you list your home on the MLS, you will need to complete a listing information form.

What information is required to list in the MLS?

The listing information form will be specific to each MLS area. It’s important that you select the correct MLS for your listing because each MLS will have slightly different search parameters. For example, if your house is a single family dwelling in Plano, choose the Dallas/Ft Worth Metroplex MLS for a single family home. Your goal should be to fill out every box with as much correct information as possible and to select every option that applies.

Providing incorrect information and leaving spaces blank on your listing information form can lengthen the time it takes you to sell.

The more information that you include on the listing, the better. Not completing the form correctly or completely hurts your chances to sell. If someone is interested in granite countertops and you forgot to add that detail to your listing description, your property will not show up in their MLS search. If you have a garden tub, dual sinks, a spiral staircase, an infinity pool or any other unique amenities, make sure you describe them as clearly and with as much detail as you can. Currently, around 90% of buyers start their search online.

You want your listing to show up on as many relevant searches as possible.”
