This is only a guess, but I think many of them.
It probably also depends upon the location. I get the impression that for some MLS operations, all properties listed go on the realtor dot com while in others the agent has to affirmatively work to put it on.
You might try calling up a few real estate brokers locally and ask them.
There does seem to be a lag between a property being listed and getting on the realtor dot com and then a lag between a signed contract and the listing being pulled.
I think that the site is great if you want to get roufh information about the value of properties in an area. Just yesterday I looked in Chichasha, OK, for the listings of houses similar to a REO property listed there on e-bay real estate. I found several houses of similar size and age that were much cheaper than the asking price. And some much larger and newer houses at a similar price. My interest in that REO plummeted.
