How To Search MLS

The MLS Home Searching tools can make your home search process so much easier! There are many options that allow you to narrow down your search to your specific preferences.

How to search by type of dwelling/home:

There are a variety of different types of properties you can choose from, by using the Property Types selection area. Simply check the boxes for the type of properties that interest you. For example, you can choose to only select Condo if you wish to only view condo options. Remember - there are small arrows that allow you to scroll up and down in the list - it is a longer list than the interface originally shows on the screen. Click on the arrows to find more options to select.
