Members of the Greater Rochester Association of REALTORS®, Inc. (GRAR) can participate in the MLS owned and operated by Upstate New York Real Estate Information Service, Inc. (UNYREIS®).
UNYREIS serves the Rochester and Finger Lakes region. Whether it is Matrix, Realist, HomeSteadNet.com, Homesnap, ShowingTime, TransactionDesk, or one of many other tools, UNYREIS is probably behind it. UNYREIS is owned and managed by the local brokers participating in the MLS, with the goal of providing members with the best tools in the industry. The day-to-day functions are managed by the staff of the Greater Rochester Association of REALTORS, under the direction of the UNYREIS Board of Managers.
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.
