When listed on MLS it is instant, it shows up on teh MLS site right away. Now if they are syndicatin whoch means placing the MLS listing on other sites like Trulia, etc, it may take longer if tehe agent waits fior the automatic upload feature. If they go on and enter manually, again it is instant.

I have had a few of my listings take up to three days on their own. When this happens I will typically enter them manually. When entered manually the they show up instantly. Most listing will only take until the next day to show up on Trulia and Zillow after being entered into the MLS.

The answers are correct. In the MLS it shows up right away. The agent will have to make sure it appears on Trulia or other sites for that matter.

Hi, It can take up to 36 hours for the listing to appear on Trulia. If you are talking about just the MLS then it should appear immediately on that MLS.

MLS comes right up, photos may take a bit longer as they are "reviewed" by the MLS, but you should see them same day. The listing then will travel from there to other sites including the brokerage own site. How it travels and how long it takes will vary depending on the syndication arrangement that the brokerage has.

The listing shows up on MLS immediately unless the agent files a hold on the listing to keep it from appearing until a specified date.
