The MLS system is owned by realtors and they pay annual fees to be members. Since I assume you want to sell by owner (no realtors), you need to Google "Flat Fee Broker" and you can post your listing into the MLS system and receive a MLS number. The requirement is you will need to pay a commission to the buyers broker (about 3%) but you save about 3% by not listing with a full service broker. This method allows you to sell by owner and have your listing posted in the MLS system with an MLS number.

You cannot get an MLS number without having a listing in the system. You need a realtor to access the system for you and give you a number.

I'm assuming the loan is for a home. If you mean "reasonable" in terms of payments, risk, debt, etc. that can only be weighed by you. How strong is your ability to pay it back? Is your employment secure? What is your debt to income ratio? What are the terms of the loan? Is the property itself a good investment? Can you afford the overhead of the property...taxes, maintenance, utilities, insurance. Do you anticipate needing to move any time soon? If so, and you need to sell the property to make that transition, how difficult will it be to liquidate and will you lose money in that process? All of these are questions only you can answer, but hopefully they'll help you make that decision. Good luck! ... more

The safest way to go is work with an expert in your local area. Your agent should have some good resources to recommend for testing and abatement. Testing to verify the issue and then removing the asbestos and lead based paint according to your jurisdications hazardous waste requirements is important.
