What does the MLS stand for and what is it.

Solution

This may come as a surprise to some, but MLS® is not a noun (it’s an adjective) and it does not mean a database or website. Rather, MLS® refers to a standard or quality of service provided by REALTORS® in conjunction with Boards’ co-operative listing systems.

CREA licenses its member real estate Boards to use the MLS® marks in association with the operation of their co-operative selling systems. Accordingly, the proper identification of these systems is “MLS® Systems.” The MLS® Systems operated by Boards and Associations across Canada send their listings to REALTOR.ca—the Canadian national listing marketing website and mobile apps owned and operated by CREA—up to four times daily.
