The International MLS [IMLS] has announced today that it has reached an agreement with Better Homes Realty to provide all of their 5,000+ property listings onto The IMLS platform so that their home sellers will now have global exposure on all of the International MLS search widgets now being distributed globally as well as on the company’s two main websites, www.TheInternationalMLS.com and www.TheInternationalRealty.com.

The International MLS [IMLS] is relatively new to the real estate industry as the first true commission share International MLS, with its free IMLS search being delivered around the world. Better Homes Realty, along with all larger USA brokers can send an electronic data feed with all of their company's listings to The IMLS on an automated basis for promotion on a worldwide scale to be on hundreds of thousands of websites. Additionally, The IMLS has now enabled smaller brokers to be able to provide their listings via MLS/IDX providers and syndicators, while agents may list their properties manually if they have broker approval.
The IMLS search is provided by the only company that provides the ability for property listings to be on hundreds of THOUSANDS of websites, empowering all agents and brokers around the world to share in commissions. Agents and brokers worldwide are now adopting the unbranded IMLS search not only because it is free and that they can earn referral commissions, but because it also enhances the agent’s prestige by the ability for them to show international properties on their own web site. Agents and brokers can earn referral commissions simply for having a web site customer who registers through their search and ends up purchasing a property somewhere in the world outside of their normal market.
Homeowners who wish to have their own homes listed on The IMLS may use a participating agent or broker, or may contact The International MLS directly for a participating broker as their home must be listed on their local MLS first.
