How to read the MLS listings

Home buyers are well advised to work with their own agent when searching for a new homes for sale in Winnipeg.  There are a ton of reasons to do so, and no advantage to ‘going it alone’.  There are a number of reasons for working with your own agent, such as:

  • You save time
  • You get unbiased support
  • Increase in convenience
  • Have a professional in YOUR corner

And you receive the list of new homes for sale, as soon as they are posted, for example these luxury homes in Winnipeg.  

Once you get the available homes list, however, they tend to be full of abbreviations and confusing real estate terminology.  So here is a 10-minute video tutorial about how to read and decipher those new MLS listings (MLS= Multiple Listing Service) which you are receiving.

Hi Bo,

Thank you for the video on reading an MLS listing. When it comes to the total tax amount at the top. If there were a $ amount after “Spc Lvy”, would that be included in the total taxes? Or is that separate?
