What is the URL of your local MLS website? I want to create a list of all of them.

Even more important, where are you? It may sound unbelievable, but many MLS websites just give zero indication of what region they cover.

Local newspapers do that too. You can look all over the front page of their website and not have any idea what state they are in. They seem to feel it's so obvious that they don't need to say it.

I don't know if there is any that are local. If there are I'm sure they are scraper sites.
The sites I use are Realtor.com, Zillow.com, Trulia.com and there used to be Ziprealty but I think they went under.

OK, I've created this now:

http://patrick.net/real_estate.php

Click on any city name and you can enter a new listing site for that city.

I just have the top 5 cities for each state, but that might be enough to at least let people get close to the best listing sites for them.

Suggestions?

Improved it again. Now all you have to do is click the city name and then paste in the URL. Check it out:

Does it need some kind of ranking system for them?
