House hunting with your REALTOR® – hunting smarter

If you’ve been very good, you’ve armed your REALTOR® with your dream home desires. Even if you’ve just talked about it, your REALTOR® knows what you’re looking for.

Welcome to the wonders of

REALTORS® run an incredible research tool called the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS® System). You can view information about properties listed in MLS® Systems across the country at, the public advertising portal. Your REALTOR® will start sending you listings of potential homes right away. You’ll be amazed how fast and easy it is to zero in on your favourite few homes.

Work from a short list

If you and your REALTOR® have done your homework and used MLS® System listings to scout ahead, you only need to visit a handful of homes to make an informed and wise selection.

Stay objective when visiting potential homes

Walking through a potential home is a thrill, but try not to lose your head. Don’t let a giant kitchen island or swanky hot tub distract you from your real goal, finding a home that meets all your needs and fits your budget. Good luck and happy hunting!
