MLS listings in California are available at websites such as Realtor, MLS Listings and MLS.com. Multiple Listing Services (MLS) are real estate databases to which real estate agents or brokers subscribe to. For example, MLS.com is a free MLS search site that provides MLS listings from different realty agents who are subscribing members of their regional MLS.
The MLS site provides searches by state for real estate that is for sale. By clicking the state of California on the state map, MLS listings can be viewed for different regions or cities in California. For example, the page displayed shows listings for many different areas, such as Bakersfield, Los Angeles area, San Francisco Bay area, Santa Cruz and Santa Barbara.
By choosing a particular location like Santa Cruz, a new page is displayed for the realty company Zip Realty. This page has search categories, such as ZIP codes, number of bedrooms, minimum and maximum home price and desired home square footage. To view the complete listings and other information, it is necessary to create a free account.
At the MLS Listings website, there is a search tool provided for entering a specific location in California, which opens up another page with a listing of properties that provide relevant information, such as price and a photo of the property. The Realtor site also offers access to many California MLS listings. This site provides listings for thousands of real estate properties with descriptions, photos and much more property details.
