Multiple Listing is the kind of Listing that is registered by a broker or a real estate agent at the Multiple Listing System (MLS). If a house is directly sold by an owner – the so-called For Sale By Owner (or FSBO) – who is not a real estate agent or a broker, it will not be considered a Multiple Listing because a property can only be listed at the Multiple Listing System (MLS) by a real estate agent or a broker. ADVICE:

Since the basic definition of what constitutes a Multiple Listing is directly linked to the Multiple Listing System (MLS) we recommend you read the Multiple Listing System (MLS) definition in our Glossary Terms.

And feel free to use our Real Estate Agent Directory to search for a real estate agent to help you better understand Multiple Listings; after all, they are the ones who created and keep the Multiple Listing System (MLS) running!
