Is it true that Realtors using the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) sell most houses and that they usually sell for a higher price?

Yes, it's true on both accounts.  According to the National Association of Realtors, approximately 80% of all U.S. homes are sold through Realtors using the MLS and homes listed on the MLS average net proceeds of 7% higher than homes sold for sale by owner.

The MLS will give you maximum exposure and this is the key to a successful transaction. There is no other effective way to sell your property and be successful.
