Now We’re Showing More Homes for Sale, Even Faster!

Redfin’s database of homes for sale just got more comprehensive and faster in the greater LA area. Before, we got homes for sale directly from CLAW, which serves Los Angeles County, and MRMLS, which serves the Inland Empire and the South Bay. Now, we get those listings even faster from CARETS, (California Real Estate Technology Services), a larger database of Southern California Multiple Listing Services that real estate brokers use to list homes for sale.

Here’s what changed:

  • Updated on the hour, every hour: We get updated listings from CLAW every hour. Before, we only could update them once a day.
  • More homes for sale: We just added 145 more listings from CLAW and 217 more from MRMLS that we previously couldn’t show. There’s one catch: to see all the details for these homes for sale, MLS rules require that you sign in with a Redfin account or register with a verified email address before we can show you all the information.
  • More amenities: Before, we couldn’t tell you whether the home has wood floors, if there’s a fireplace, whether the kitchen’s got marble counters. Now we can show all these details.

We plan on switching over even more Southern California MLS’s in the near future.

    I think it might be more accurate to state that you can show the details that are provided by the listing agent. GIGO. Can you tell me if you also integrate the FE-Score from into your listings? And if not, then when?

    Sales of existing homes showed another gain in May, benefiting from favorable affordability conditions (including low rates!) and a first-time buyer tax credit. The housing market is finally starting to rebound across the country & California is no exception. Using the right metrics based on the regular analysis gives an exact picture which can help make better Home buying decisions. Identifying the right market & finding the best property holds the key to success. In fact there is a tool through which you can research, compare & identify best places to invest.
