Those are all questions you should ask your broker. The broker should train you on MLS useage and assist you through each step.

Simply go to the website and type in "approved condomium projects" in the search bar. That will bring up a list of all approved projects.

MLS stands for Multiple Listing Service. It is a system where Realtors share their properties for sale and is a broad agreement where commissions are shared. According to the National Association of Realtors 2009 profile of Buyers and Sellers 64% of first time home buyers used the MLS to find a home while 93% of Seller's utilized it as part of their marketing plan. Therefore, the main pro is exposure...and I don't see any con. MLS systems can only be access by Realtors, therefore you would need to have a Realtor represent you to get your property on you local system. Each Realtor will offer different services and will charge different a different commission rate. If you are new to buying/selling real estate you should consider only working with a full service agent, also you should interview a few agents and find one you like. If you are a Seller, the total commissions will be charged as a closing costs for both buyer and seller. Any amount of commissions paid to the Buyer Agent from the Seller will count as a credit to the commission agreement between the Buyer Agent and the Buyer. For example, if a Buyer Agent charges 3% to represent a Buyer and the Seller agrees to pay 2.5% of that...the .5% differerence would be the Buyer's responsibility to pay at closing. Hope this helps you out...good luck! ... more
