I feel that your inquiry into multiple listing systems is unwarrented. MLS systems are data bases compiled by Realtors for Realtors. These data bases are not a "public utility". The information is accesible to any one who wants to obtain a license and pay the MLS dues. Many licensees choose not to join the MLS and operate independently. Robert S. Piper, Flint MI.
