How To Shop For Real Estate In A Country With No MLS

Kathleen Peddicord | Posted 04.09.2014 | Fifty
Kathleen Peddicord

In most of the world, there's no such thing as a Multiple Listing Service (MLS). "Running comps," as any would-be real estate buyer would do when shopping in the United States, depends on referencing an MLS. But, again, no such organized, computerized, easily accessible database of properties on the market exists in most of the world. With limited exceptions, the MLS is a U.S. market phenomenon, an indispensable tool that, somehow, the rest of the world's real estate markets manage to survive without.

Arlene Nisson Lassin

The reason first love stories are so compelling to read is because there is something so powerful about a young love experience. Is it because it happens when our hearts are still innocent and pure -- before that first inevitable heartbreak? Or is it because once that huge flame dies out, a few warm embers remain to keep the memory aglow?

I hoard emails. My reason for hoarding them is simple: I might need them some day. Emails serve as written proof of a conversation.
