Tucson Multiple Listing Service

AKA Tucson MLS

Click HERE to search the Tucson MLS

The Tucson Multiple Listing Service is a vital key to search for properties. It is ONE way that communicates to other Realtors about what is on the market (there are other ways also). There are other sites that carry real estate listings i.e. Craigslist, Trulia, Zillow,, etc. For the most part, the other sites are syndicated from the MLS. Which means those listings are sent from the Tucson MLS service to the other services to copy the listing. The Tucson Multiple Listing Service remains the central source for listings. There are some exceptions to the syndication, certain websites such as Craigslist require that the real estattue agent upload the information. So the MLS is still the main source, but the syndication doesn't happen automatically.

Searching the MLS can sometimes be easy and sometimes what should be easy returns no results when you know the market is loaded of what your looking for. I have put together some informational videos on how to search the Tucson MLS.

Steps in doing the search:

1. Pick a property type - your choices are residential, commercial, land, rental or residential income.

2. Pick a property sub type. The most common is Single Family Residential, Manufactured Single Family, Mobile Home, Townhouse, or Condo. There are other selections, especially if looking for new construction.

3. Pick the area. The video below details the Tucson Multiple Listing service area boundares for this choice.

4. From there - the more choices you enter will limit the return you get. Sometimes it is better to search the Multiple Listing Service with less restrictions and then if your results are too many then add in additional MLS characteristics.

5. Some common other features may be number of bedrooms and bathrooms and, of course, price.

6. If your results contain a lot of listings, you may further look at additional criteria by looking at the MLS 'Additional Criteria' tab.

NOTE: Suggestion when entering bathrooms. I recommend when searching the Tucson MLS that you enter in the total number of bathrooms you are looking for. Ignore categories such as 'full baths', '3/4 baths', 'half baths', '1/4 baths'. The reason for this is Realtors a lot of time get this wrong. You want to bring back the maximum number of listings and then drill down to the detail to examine bathrooms. The only way to really tell the proper number of bathrooms is to go visit the home.

Just for your information, the definition of a bathroom that is used in the Tucson Multiple Listing Service is as follows:

Full Bath - Toilet, Sink and bathtub

3/4 Bath - Toilet, sink and shower

1/2 Bath - Toilet and Sink

1/4 Bath - typically consists of an alcove or small room with a fixture (usually sink).

One of the features I offer at no charge to my clients is the Tucson Multiple Listing Service 'Client Portal'. This system allows the Real Estate Professional to enter in his or her clients search criteial into the Tucson MLS and this sets up a special web page that the client can save or reject listings. This starts to harness the full power of the Tucson Multiple Listing Service. In addition it save the client and the Realtor time by weeding out properties the client would not be interested in.


I would be more than willing to set up a free client portal for you. Please drop me an email or telephone call to discuss your search criteria.
