Click on this link to set your own criteria and Search the Full MLS. This is the full FlexMLS system that Realtors use in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area. FlexMLS provides the MLS platform for our ARMLS (Arizona Regional MLS) and this is a direct feed from that service. We pay an annual fee to use the FlexMLS IDX feed to our websites just as with any third party service. By paying for this service we're able to provide our website visitors with real time MLS updates. It's the same system that we use in our own searches.
Third party IDX systems that are found on national web site search systems are not real time.
Consequently, when a buyer is searching on those national sites they are looking at outdated information. Many of the homes that show Active are already AWC, Pending, Sold, Cancelled, or Expired.
Many times a client of mine has sent me MLS numbers from a national search and I discover that only 2 out of 10 are actually Active.
