If you run a quick search on the Internet for “selling property as FSBO,” you will quickly discover that the majority of relevant blog posts claim the process to be tedious, lengthy and difficult. Maybe so. We really cannot deny that many individuals selling FSBO do not have the necessary skills needed to sell their property. As opposed to a real estate agent, FSBO sellers do not have access to the MLS and they absolutely do not possess the tools and the knowledge to accurately price a property in order to sell at fair market value.
We Make It Less Difficult
Fortunately, with the aide of technology and modern business models, FSBO’s now have the essential tools needed to sell their property. Flat-fee MLS is a new business model, providing essential services otherwise offered by traditional Realtors. However, the main difference is that the flat-fee MLS listing agent does not collect the full 6% commission at closing. Rather, the listing agent has already been paid a flat fee for listing the property, and the only payment is to the buyer’s agent, which percentage is determined by the seller at the start of the listing period.
Flat Fee MLS In Focus
You may be wondering how a flat fee agent can offer any value to your sale for such a limited cost. For starters, flat-fee MLS service providers list your property for sale in the MLS. This will immediately syndicate your listing to hundreds other real estate-related listing websites, including Trulia and Zillow, just to name a few. Ultimately, if your flat fee agent lists your property in the MLS, you can rest assured that it will marketed to the maximum number of potential buyers, significantly increasing the chances of a sale.
