So How Exactly Does Flat Fee Real Estate Work?
What we do for our clients is unbundle traditional real estate to appeal to all types of sellers. We let you choose what arrangement works best for you. We have packages for clients that are comfortable with showing their property to prospective buyers and making arrangements with an attorney, all the way up to packages for clients that feel more comfortable with having a professional REALTOR handle the buyers and contracts.
We are offering you more options. If you use one of our "FlatListed.com" flat fee listing packages you only pay an upfront fee for us to list your property and we provide you the same marketing tools that professional REALTORs (like us) use.
We allow sellers to take advantage of the great exposure of MLS (Multiple Listing Service). Your MLS listing not only increases your exposure, it opens your home to a greater pool of buyers. It will provide an extra avenue of buyers who utilize real estate agents and typically stay away from traditional for sale by owner listings.
- What is the MLS?
The Multiple Listing Service or MLS is a cooperative marketing system which allows professional Realtors® to share information about real estate for sale. It is the most powerful marketing tool for a homeowner to sell their home. Regardless of which company an agent works for, he or she has access to the same database through their local board of REALTORs. It’s only available to Realtors and not to the public. The MLS feeds data to many different real estate websites including REALTOR.com.
We encourage you to meet with any agent in the area to see what they are offering you and how much commission they are charging. Take that information and compare it to what you can get with one of our packages and we are confident we have an option that provides the same or similar marketing for less.
