About FMLS (First Multiple Listing Service)
FMLS is one of the primary multiple listing service (MLS) providers in the Greater Atlanta area (Georgia MLS is the other). Predominantly serving Metro Atlanta, most members, along with their real estate listings, are concentrated in the metro area. However, FMLS's coverage territory includes the entire state of Georgia, so you'll find listings scattered throughout the state. Boasting a broker membership base in the thousands, FMLS's total agent count is in the ten's of thousands. This makes FMLS one of the largest MLSs in the United States, based on membership numbers.
Founded in 1957 by a group of real estate brokers, FMLS has grown to become the primary source of property listings and real estate technology for REALTORS® conducting business in the Greater Atlanta area. Providing top-notch tools, training, technology, service and benefits for their agents and brokers, FMLS is a must-have for any serious real estate practitioner in the area. Membership is required for brokers to post their listings and access the many tools that are available, so those who are interested in joining FMLS should request a membership package to get started.
FMLS Listings - Homes, Townhomes, Condos & More
Agents performing a property search can use FMLS's various tools to accurately search and filter listings. The types of real estate categories available on the MLS include: residential attached, residential detached, land, lots, multi-unit, rentals and commercial properties. The most common property types found on FMLS are residential detached (single family homes) and residential attached (condos & townhomes).
FMLS listings contain all the essential details of the property, along with virtual tours, real estate records, maps, documents, tax records and more. Each listed property is given a unique identifying number that can be used to quickly find the listing using an MLS number search.
Advanced Atlanta Home Search
There are literally hundreds of data fields that can be used to narrow down listing results and create saved searches for clients. These fields include filters for listing criteria such as: location, price, style, size, age, amenities, schools and much more. In addition, the advanced Atlanta MLS search integrates with other tools, providing agents with access to massive amounts of real estate data.
Key partnerships with leading third party technology providers enables seamless access to home value estimates, market trends, financing information, housing data and historical sales records. This enables agents to elevate their knowledge of the local real estate market and provide even more value to their clients.
