Do you believe that another Realtor and I can add your listing to the MLS and the 2 listings could show up very differently? I'm not just talking about photos, but the information that is entered... information buyers search by.

It's an assumed thing that when your home is listed in the MLS, it's listed just like all of the other homes. People don't just search by beds, baths, and/or school districts (even though these are entered incorrectly far more than you would expect), but by model of the home, the builder of the home, style of home (ranch, 2 story), garage, sqft, views, etc. You can even search by keywords in the property descriptions, yet sometimes those are only 1 or 2 sentences, other times there is no description at all.

It can take as little as 10 minutes to make a listing active, but if you fill everything out and add even the information that isn't required it can take a few hours. Did you know that some Realtors hire people to enter listing information? There's nothing wrong with that and it's perfectly legal, but I'm sure this comes as a surprise to most people. Why are you paying a licensed professional thousands of dollars to sell your home when this person is too busy to handle all aspects of my transaction personally?
