Resources You Can Use/Share

How NAR Advocates For You!

The National Association of REALTORS® creates guidelines that foster efficient and convenient local broker marketplaces to ensure equity, transparency and market-driven pricing for home buyers and sellers. ​​​​​

Source Reliable Data

Consumers can confidently rely on information because real estate agents share complete housing data backed by guidelines that ensure accuracy and transparency.

World without NAR and MLSs

Without NAR’s guidelines for the local MLS broker marketplaces, information on homes would be inaccurate, unreliable and scattered across real estate sites, disadvantaging buyers and sellers.

Provide Largest Home Sale Source

Each local broker marketplace provides instant exposure to the largest possible pool of potential buyers for sellers and the greatest number of housing options for buyers.

Create Consumer Choice

Buyers and sellers have many choices about the brokers with whom they work – from how they are paid to specific expertise to customer service – all at market-driven prices.

Because of NAR’s guidance, the U.S. model of broker marketplaces has no hidden or extra costs and provides verified, complete information.
