Members of the Greater Rochester Association of REALTORS®, Inc. (GRAR) can participate in the Upstate New York Real Estate Information Service, Inc. (UNYREIS®).
Through the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), UNYREIS disseminates real estate information to more than 2,850 GRAR members, including residential agents, commercial practitioners, appraisers and property managers. REALTORS® may choose to participate with UNYREIS®, which gives them access to services, including: electronic lock boxes, electronic forms, public records information and most importantly, the property listing data. These services are often critical to the sale of the property, or to finding a new home.
Launched in 1995, www.HomeSteadNet.com, is the UNYREIS public website and was one of the first in the country to provide local listing information to the public. www.HomeSteadNet.com is widely used in the Greater Rochester/Finger Lakes/Southern Tier region and contains the most complete database of local homes for sale.
The Matrix™ MLS system provides an auto-notification service that will send instant email alerts of any new property on the market that matches the user’s criteria. In this way, buyers are made aware of any new listings and sellers are provided immediate exposure for their property. Ask your REALTOR® how to get started with this program.
