A pending sale means the seller has an offer but hasn’t closed yet. (This is different from a contingent sale.) A property is placed in pending status the minute a contract is executed. But there’s still a chance the home can be up for grabs again—say, if the inspection doesn’t check out or the buyer can’t pull together the financing.
The additional benefit of MLS systems is that an MLS subscriber may search an MLS and retrieve information about all homes for sale by all participating brokers. MLS systems contain hundreds of fields of information about the features of a property.

While tornadoes in the Midwest are more severe, a higher rate of deaths are experienced in Florida, and Brevard County, specifically, due to higher population density and quantity of manufactured homes.

“We cannot think of anything Leslie could have done better in the sale of my late father’s home. While his home was beautiful and in a fantastic location, it was very dated and we live 400 miles away. Leslie knew the local market, gave us a realistic opinion of the value and put a lot of time and thought into what our priorities needed to be in order to sell the house quickly. She respected our thoughts and concerns throughout the process. The contractors she recommended for the updates did a great job. We have never had a real estate agent keep us as up to date as Leslie did. As closing approached, she went out of her way to assist us in tracking down the necessary documentation and signatures which was a huge help as we work and are so far away from Brevard. The most important things to me were that she was a pleasure to interact with and we came to trust her more and more as time went on.”
In 2007, the real estate brokerage Realtysellers shut down after alleging that the CREA and Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) had modified their rules to hinder flat-fee MLS services on behalf of those selling houses themselves. In 2010, the CREA settled with the Competition Bureau, and agreed to allow flat-fee listings. However, some real estate boards continued to bar the practice, citing interpretations of provincial laws requiring those trading in real estate to be licensed. Flat-free providers disputed the argument, claiming that their services were no different than posting listings on classifieds, and that they were not necessarily trading. In 2015, the Competition Bureau began a federal case against the TREB by Realitysellers

Librarians work with people of all ages, connecting them to information, learning and the community.” The association’s LibraryCareers.org site collects information about library and information science careers, work environments, and more.

In Canada, CREA has come under scrutiny and investigation by the Competition Bureau and litigation by former CREA member and real estate brokerage Realtysellers (Ontario) Ltd., for the organization’s control over the Canadian MLS system.

The brokerage later shut down and launched a $100 million lawsuit against CREA and TREB, alleging that they breached an earlier out-of-court settlement that the parties entered into in 2003.
