Each day as I look through hundreds of listings on the OKC MLS the photos never cease to amaze me. I see Aunt Betty poking her head around the corner, Realtors taking pictures of themselves in the mirror, last nights dinner still sitting on the counter top, laundry on the floor, chochkties everywhere. People, do you really want to sell your house? And, what was the hiring criteria for your Realtor? Holy moly.
In January, Oklahoma City Metropolitan Association of Realtors launched a Green REsource Council. Our mission is to make the knowledge of green real estate practices available to everyone and to encourage our industry to produce greener homes and buildings. We have had two meetings to date and our agenda gets longer each time. The committee includes, Sarah Del Valle, Ryan Hukill, Katrina Washington, Shawna Vann, Simon Shingleton, Vickie Dupree, Elizabeth Foraker, Gayle Hough and myself.
MLS stands for Multiple Listings Service. The OKC MLS is a site that Realtors subscribe to and communicate through. Through membership at their local board (OKCMAR), Realtors are able to post their new listings and immediately following all other Realtors are able to see the new listings. The public typically sees this updated information within 24 hours through public sites but it completely depends on which sites they search. Not all information online is accurate or timely.
