Prelist is a community driven project backed by homeowners, developers, and entrepreneurs working together to create and maintain a free, accessible platform for buying and selling real estate in North America.
We started Prelist to provide homeowners and real estate agents the opportunity to gain exposure to the private real estate market prior to listing with MLS®.
If you have any questions about Prelist, selling or buying your next home, please don’t hesitate to contact us anytime.
