What Areas Does Investway Cover?

As of this writing, Investway serves both the greater Dallas and Houston metropolitan areas. More specifically, we assimilate MLS data from North Texas Real Estate Information Systems (NTREIS) and the Houston Association of REALTORs (HAR). Naturally, then, we serve the areas that NTREIS and HAR serve.

HAR includes MLS data in the major Houston counties including: Harris, Fort Bend, Montgomery, Brazoria, Galveston, Liberty, Waller, Chambers, Austin (note– this is NOT in the city of Austin), San Jacinto, Matagorda, and Walker. There are 108 additional counties and areas in which HAR has collected MLS information, and here is a map of those areas according to HAR:

NTREIS includes MLS data in the major North Texas counties including: Dallas, Tarrant, Denton, Collin, Anderson, Bosque, Brown, Callahan, Camp, Cherokee, Coleman, Comanche, Cooke, Delta, Eastland, Ellis, Erath, Fannin, Franklin, Freestone, Grayson, Hamilton, Henderson, Hill, Hood, Hopkins, Hunt, Jack,  Johnson, Jones, Kaufman, Lamar, Limestone, McLennan, Mitchell, Montague, Nacarro, Newton, Nolan, Palo Pinto, Parker, Rains, Red River, Smith, Somervell, Stephens, Taylor, Titus, Upshur, Van Zandt, Walker, Wise, Wood, and Young. In addition, there are hundreds of additional outlying areas in which NTREIS has collected MLS information. Here are maps of the areas NTREIS serves:

NTREIS and HAR  have some limited data in areas outside of their service areas. For example, NTREIS has listings located in South America, Europe and more.

Even more, NTREIS has several listings in Harris county, and likewise, HAR has several listings in Dallas County. Both HAR and NTREIS have listings in Travis county (in the city of Austin), a county that is served by an entirely separate MLS provider.

Occasionally, REALTORS input their listings in an MLS to which their listing does not geographically belong, or perhaps have listed the property in two or three different MLS’s to get additional marketing traction for their property.

To find out if Investway serves a specific MLS area you have interest in, perform an MLS search by county. As you scroll through the counties, you will see the quantity of listings within the listed area.
