Using the MLS system puts you in front of the agents who have qualified buyers, often preapproved, that can purchase your home. It levels the playing field so that anyone looking to purchase a home like yours can find it and pursue purchasing it with a skilled agent at their side
Just following up on your MLS and Open House questions. I'm not going to be "that guy" who tries to sell myself while subtly answering your question with an open ended response. Not sure if your home is still for sale by owner or if you've now gone with an agent. Let me know if there is anything that I can help you out with.

I just posted a pie graph on facebook titled "Where will your buyer come from?"
Breaks it down: Internet, Agent, friends, newspaper ads, MLS, for sale signs and much more.

In additions, this study reveal homes newly listed can appear 7 days AFTER their appearance on reeal estate professional websites.
Add to that all the FALSE data appearing from Realty Trac and you end up with a website that fosters frustration and confusion. The consumer is being mislead by data that appears on aggregate real estae websites from the homes listed to the laughable 'valuations' that appear.
If you want your home to be presented to knowledgeable, SERIOUS, qualified buyers, your home must be where the SERIOUS buyers are looking, the local MLS.
Any other conclusion is delusional.
Best of success,
