Why Is My Contact Information Not Showing in Realtor.com or Other Sites

There are two type of people who will see your listing. An agent and the public.

Only agents have direct access to the MLS. Agents sees the showing contact information you provided us. You should have seen this in the print out we sent you the day the listing became active in the MLS.

The public do not have direct access to the MLS. They will see your property through one of the virtually thousands of websites that PULL data from the MLS. The MLS restricts sellers and showing contact information to be displayed in this 3rd party sites for security reason. Please remember that the MLS is designed for agents providing full service to sellers. FSBOs account for a very small fraction of listings in the MLS so their policy is for the majority.

3rd Party sites owner decides who the contact information will be. It will either be us or it could either be someone else. Re/Max and other major players will put their agents contact information if it is their site.

Buyers who contact us by phone are instructed to either visit our website at www.XRealty.NET where they can see your contact information or they can leave a message to our voice mail which is then converted to an audio file. We will forward to you every voice mail and emails we receive for your property.
