There are basically two choices you have once you decide to list your home in the MLS: Flat Fee MLS listing (or Discount MLS Listing), such as with our company, or Traditional. When listing your home on the MLS with a full-service Real Estate company, a listing commission is charged. This listing commission is usually based on the sales price of your home and will usually range anywhere from 3-6%. Keep in mind this has nothing to do with the buyers agency commission, which can run you another 3-6% of your sales price. This means that 6-12% of the price of your home will go to Real Estate Agents.
Instead of paying a large listing commission to a traditional real estate agency to list your home in the MLS, you can list with us for only $195. That's right, there is no listing commission to us! A small commission, of your choice, will be due to the buyer's agent who brings you a ready, willing and able buyer. And remember, if you sell your home on your own, without any Real Estate Agent involved, you will owe no commission to anyone!
