Updated: Oct 12, 2023


In this article, I wanted to briefly go over the most important elements to view online prior to showings for buyers. Keep in mind that buyer preferences may vary substantially, & some items not highlighted might be very important to you, so be sure to keep those in mind as well.


Items to Look for Prior to Requesting a Showing Directly Within the MLS Listing:

Use a Laptop or a Desktop, Not a Phone to View Property Elements

Green, Red, & Purple Notation Used Below

Top of Listing from REIN MLS Portal: Map View (i.e. Flood Zones), Virtual Tour, Status, & Yr Built

Middle of Listing from REIN MLS Portal: Pictures, Remarks, & Notes Section for Your Personal Reference

3rd Section of Listing from REIN MLS Portal: General Description - Market Time, HOA/Condo Fees, Disclosures, School Districts

4th Section of Listing from REIN MLS Portal: Property Features - Style, Acreage, 1st Floor Bedrooms, Parking

5th Section of Listing from REIN MLS Portal: Utility - Heating, Cooling, Water Type, & Sewer Type

For a much greater volume of content to research, see my Master Spreadsheet for Prospective Home Purchase Considerations . It's best to have an editable version where you eliminate certain columns that don't matter to you & it's best to shift those items that do to the left of the spreadsheet as detailed in the article.
