What is an MLS to the public?

The MLS brings organization to the Real Estate Industry. In Nicaragua, Law 602 is quite clear on its objectives in licensing realtors and mandatory education, and the MLS is the required tool to accomplish the mission. MLS has been implemented in most of the developed nations of the world to bring order to an otherwise chaotic and disorganized real estate industry. The MLS has been proven successful in every country that it has been implemented.  MLS technologies and regulations for use are designed to fit the laws of each country and designed to stimulate the professional development of the real estate industry of each country. Therefore, it brings professionalism in the Real Estate Industry, to the owners of real estate and brings the most powerful marketing tool currently in use to market their properties effectively.  Buyers benefit by verified agents and properties and transparency to negotiate the fairest market value.

AN MLS system allows the public to employ the services of one realtor exclusively with the capacity of reaching every realtor, every buyer and seller, and every listing through one organized information source.

Purpose & Benefits of an MLS

The MLS facilitates cooperation with other broker participants, accumulates and disseminates information to enable appraisals, and is a facility for the orderly correlation and dissemination of listing information to better serve broker's clients, customers and the public.

The primary purpose of an MLS is to provide a facility to publish a "unilateral offer of compensation" by a listing broker, to ALL other broker participants in that MLS. In other words, the commission rate that is offered by the listing broker is published within the MLS to other cooperating brokers. This offer of compensation is considered a contractual obligation.  However, it can be negotiated between the listing broker and the broker representing the buyer. Since, the commission for a transaction, as well as the property features, are contained in the MLS system, it is in the best interests of the broker participants (and thereby the public) to maintain accurate and timely data.

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. These fields are determined by real estate professionals who are knowledgeable and experienced in that local marketplace, whereas public real estate websites contain only a small subset of property data

The MLS facilitates efficiencies in the real estate transaction by increasing the number of real estate agents marketing your property as well as the national and international visibility on the web.  Instead of working with one agent, you now gain exposure to hundreds if not thousands as all members of the MLS have the option to market your property in exchange for a share of the offered commission.  Sellers benefit by increased exposure to their property, while buyers benefit because they can obtain information about all MLS-listed properties while working with only one broker.

With the MLS in place, buyers and sellers can work with a single professional of their choice, confident that they have access to the largest database of VERIFIED properties for sale in the Nicaragua real estate marketplace.

Additional MLS-Nica Benefits

Reach International Buyers:

According to NAR, international buyers are the best client target group, since on average they spend more money, close faster and oftentimes make purchase decision remotely from finding information online.  In addition to local traffic the MLS-NICA.COM powered by Propertyshelf gives unparalleled access to international buyers through its syndication partners like, homes4 global alliance,, and others.  All listings exist and are marketed in all relevant languages allowing sellers to reach investors from around the world in their native language. Best of all, thanks to the Homes4 Global Alliance, each member has the opportunity to partner with agents in each language that are better equipped to market properties to their respective audience, bridging linguistic and cultural gaps that often exist, in exchange for a small referral fee. In other words you might receive a call from a German agent managing the translation and supports you throughout the sales process with a German or French speaking client any and keep 75% of the commission!    Our efforts to date with only a few properties currently in the system in Nicaragua, already lets our site appear on top search engine rankings across multilingual portals.
