Hello - the Central Oregon MLS does not actively participate with RMLS - to easily search the Central Oregon MLS you can visit my website and search the entire Central Oregon MLS at http://www.centraloregonbuzz.com

Hi Cindy,


has listing data daily from RMLS.com and SOMLS.com which serves southern Oregon.

You can search multiple family & bare land.
You can set up autoemail alerts.
You can link to daily NEW listing data from the home page, listed by or filtered by city.

We also utiliize Google maps so you can see what is where.

RMLS restricts the showing of addresses, but SOMLS does not.

There are 38 active listings for homes currently in the RMLS in Lakeside, and more than 900 in Coos County overall. This is a strong buyer's market, but well-priced and well-marketed homes are still selling. Interview some Realtors regarding the sale of your home to gain a better perspective of how to proceed for the best results! A Realtor can analyze the market and tell you exactly what homes your home will be competing against, and should give you suggestions on how to maximize the return on your sale. And if you're looking to buy, I also highly recommend enlisting the aid of a Realtor. As a buyer, you pay no commission, and you will be represented by a professional in one of the biggest financial transactions of your life. Good luck!

Here is a quick primer on "the MLS"
When you list your home. the broker has responsibility for the listing. He/She has a higher level of accountability. You may have noticed that in some posts I have suggested that people take their concerns to the broker...they have the ultimate responsibility for their agents' conduct.
The broker controls where listings are marketed. Trulia is one of many sites that are "aggregators". They collect listings (and charge brokers no fee), and, if you upload them, then they "appear".
To be candid, if I were a home buyer and seller, as stated in your profile, I would hire a Realtor.

A couple of reasons:
1. You are spending /investing a lot of money. As a seller, you want to squeeze every dime out of your home.
2. As a buyer, you want the VERY best deal, so use a trained negotiator.
3. the Realtor's three main jobs:
a) Get the most "net" to the seller possible
b) Keep the seller free of legal entanglements
c) Help the seller keep their move on time, and within budget and other parameters.

You are selling your home in a buyer's market (most common). To net the most : Time is your enemy. Prepare, stage, price it right, and market like there is no tomorrow. I use about 35 steps when I market a property. Do I know which one will bring not only the buyer, but the BEST buyer? No. I do ALL of THEM!
When moving within the same market...your biggest enemy is TIME...interest rates are going UP!
So price your home to sell, then buy...at the lowest interest rate.

Good luck!

Trulia is not a "Multiple Listing System" like rmls. Brokerages and Agents submit their listing to Trulia but some elect not to. Where as the local MLS require the listing to be entered within a certain amount of time.

Trulia does have a lot of listing, but not all. They are growing very fast, but will never have all listings...
