My coverage map is more expansive for sellers than for buyers.
Below you'll find my coverage map for buyers, arranged by price of home, with some exceptions that I'll get into (i.e. $50k lower thresholds from October-February).

The orange items above in 5 locations are the base of operations for the 5 MLS I pay for access to on an ongoing basis. Most agents only have access to 1 or 2, and it's critical that agents have access to & will use the primary MLS of a property's area if you are a listing a property with the agent or if you are relying on a buyer's agent for a feed of potential properties. When listing a home, the more MLS you are on, the better your coverage will be and the greater the number of agents and buyers you will reach.
The white spaces above are areas where I typically don't have optimal MLS coverage.
The MLS coverage map above is based on homes:
A. With a minimum 2% commission for those buyers I represent
B. With a 3% commission for the listing firm, with whatever desired amount for the buying firm in addition to that, but I recommend another 3%.
Exceptions to the above:
Land & Commercial Commissions
Buyer/Seller Paying Out of Pocket for Gap Coverage
Non-Profits Making a Difference in Topics I'm Passionate About
If a Buyer is Looking in Multiple Zones
Buyers Seeking Less than 10 Hours of Showings Including Travel Time
Adam Having a Low or High Workload ($50k Lower Price from October-February)
