Selling your own home may be a daunting task, especially if you have a day job. When you combine a day job with selling your property as FSBO (as well as family and the stress of moving), you’ve certainly got a number of difficult tasks on your hands. FSBO sellers typically cite these reasons when asked about various challenges they believe prevented them from selling their property. Yes, it is indeed challenging to sell your own home, however, with the aide of modern technology, you’d be surprised at the amount of help one can obtain when trying to sell your own home. One such service is called Flat Fee MLS.
Sell Your Own Home Using Flat Fee MLS
Selling your home using a flat fee MLS broker makes it easier to have your property gain additional and necessary marketing exposure. The additional exposure means a wider net of potential buyers looking at your property. Online, this can be achieved by having your property listed in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). However, only a licensed real estate broker has the ability to list your property in the MLS. This is where a flat-fee MLS listing service can come in handy for a FSBO. The flat fee MLS broker will assist you in placing your property into the MLS, which listing will syndicate to hundreds of other real estate-related websites.
Aside from having your property listed in the MLS, certain flat fee MLS brokers offer additional services as well. Certain services include For Sale signs and document templates required to finalize your sales transaction with a buyer. Aside from these services, flat fee MLS brokers can also provide additional services so that you don’t have to sacrifice your job or family time when trying selling your own home.
In order to choose the right flat fee broker, you must consider the following:
- Good Track Record – Do a little online research — especially viewing the flat fee MLS providers’ online reviews. This research could save you from choosing between the services of a reputable or low quality flat fee MLS provider. Search for reviews concerning the company and look at their track record; chances are you’ll hear what past clients have to say: the good, the bad, and the ugly. There is no substitute for a client’s testimonial.
- Accredited Business – Also look to see if the broker is accredited. One such reputable organization that gives accreditation (after passing certain rigid standards) is the Better Business Bureau.
