Bellport Village Category on MLS
As you are probably aware, Rice Realty Group, at “the 4 corners” in Bellport Village, has been serving the Village and surrounding communities from our location for the past year. Rice Realty is the only MLS (Multiple Listing Service) Real Estate Brokerage located in the Village.
In addition to completing over 14 sale transactions and 20 rental transactions during the past 12 months, both in the Village and other communities, we have been actively pursuing an important initiative that will benefit the homeowners of our community.
Specifically, this initiative has been to lobby MLS, requesting that they modify their website to create a new search category for the Village. In the past, when buyers searched on MLS, they had a difficult time searching for homes within the Village. Additionally, many consumers were confused about the disparity in home prices within the Bellport zip code. With the separate category, customers can zero in more concisely to search for homes both within and outside of the Village.
We are excited to announce that after a year of lobbying, MLS has agreed to add a category to their website for Bellport Village. Now, when buyers and sellers access mlsli.com, they can specifically search the new category “Bellport Village” and see the MLS listings in the Village.
It is a common belief that real estate conditions differ from community to community. This effort is a great example of why using a local company to serve your real estate needs is imperative. Our understanding of the real estate needs of the Village has benefitted both homeowners, and potential homeowners, of the Village by providing a clearer picture of the local current real estate market.
