MLS listings Toronto hold many regular events that can either take place annually or biannually. These events are aimed at popularizing the MLS service and also educating people and members of the MLS on the importance of following all the rules, what do to do get better sales and how to advance the real estate industry. These events are:


Conferences are events that are aimed at bringing people together with an agenda. This means that real estate brokers are for instance invited to a conference to discuss real estate market trends. The appointed speakers give their speeches and their views on the matter. Conferences are interactive in that after the argument is presented, the audience can discuss the argument and ask questions.

The conference may have more than one speakers and more than one agendas depending on the length of time that the conference is expected to be in session. Each speaker is expected to offer a different approach to the issue at hand or bring up a new topic of discussion. It is, however, important that they can limit the number of topics to a number that can be exhaustively discussed during that conference sitting.


A workshop is different from a conference because, in a conference, the speakers raise issues that all attendees can discuss and find solutions to. A workshop, however, is an educational gathering. The people gathered in a workshop are there to learn something they did not know before. This is like a short course on a specific subject.
The speaker, in this case, is usually an expert on the topic at hand and extensively offers their knowledge on the topic to the members at the workshop. After the workshop, members are given an opportunity to ask questions and seek clarifications. A workshop can be defined as an academic conference since it is more formal.

Seminars and webinars

Seminars are interactive gatherings that allow everyone to air his or her view on an issue. It is a discussion where people come together to exchange information on a similar subject. It is an open sharing forum since everyone gets to air their point and defend their argument.

A webinar is an online seminar. Instead of people being physically present for the discussion, in a webinar people hold the discussion over the internet through various platforms like video chats. Webinars are real-time events that involve sharing information and learning new things.

These are the main MLS listing events that take planning and aim at making the user experience even more efficient and easy. Some events are held by brokers however that are part of the MLS listing service in that they mainly originate from transactions on the system. These events are:

Open houses

This is an occasion that is typically composed for purchasers to visit a house that they are keen on and visit the property. In an open house, buyers are allowed to visit and inspect every inch of the property to ensure that it is what they are looking for and help them make an offer on the house. Mostly, an open house is for all interested buyers meaning that all the interested buyers visit the property on the assigned date.

House showings

This is similar to an open house in that buyers are shown to the property, and they can tour and inspect the property. The difference is in that in a house showing, only one buyer visits the property at a time. A house showing is usually organized by the buyer’s broker while the open house is usually planned by a seller’s broker. Once a buyer has seen the property, then they can make an informed decision and confer with their broker on the way forward.
