Realtor.CA – Did You Know?

Realtor. CA is a great tool for the home buyers, however there are a few tricks you should know to avoid some future frustration.


1. is not a real time system, but just an advertising platform for MLS. Property availability status updates sometimes take up to 48 hours and some even over 72 hours. The home of your dreams might be sold before you even find it.

2. does not show all the properties available for sale, but only those that listing agents allowed to be "ADVERTISED". The home of your dreams might not even show up there for you, period.

3. only has basic information on the property and often does not communicate important details, such as payment terms, possession time, etc.

4. will greatly benefit in your home search, as long as this is not the only tool you are using.

5. it is quite an embarrassment to say but some agents still don't know how to enter info into MLS properly, accordingly, if the buyer only checking the map, some of the excellent properties could be missed
