1. My State MLS

The market is currently extremely hot, with well-priced properties selling quickly with multiple offers. It's important to get any edge you can, and a great way to do this is by going straight to the source. Some MLSs, such as My State MLS, have a public search function, where you can find new listings before they hit syndicated sites. Real estate brokerages' websites may also update before other sites, meaning you'll be the first to see listings that hit the market.
