MLS or Multiple Listing Service is a database of properties in the surrounding area of a City and County. This list is usually only available to participating Brokers and Agents that are members of the local Board of Realtors. MLS is the main source of real estate information for Brokers CMA’s, Appraisers and other Real Estate Professionals. To maximize your listing, listing your property on the MLS it will sale faster than properties that are not on the MLS.
The listing will be seen by more than just Realtors, some of the information will be seen by Brokers, Realtors and by the general public by web sites like Zillow.com, Trulia.com, Realtor.com and other major Real Estate web sites. MLS data feeds into these sites, making your advertising very effective. Flat Fee Listing involves paying a Broker to list a property for a minimum flat fee amount instead of a regular commission of 6%. This involves cooperation from the seller to provide all the accurate and necessary information required by the Multiple Listing Service.
In most cases, a listing offer is usually 6% of the sales price, 3% to the listing broker and 3% to the selling broker, who helps in the search for a buyer. This is usually why the MLS is so effective in the sales of properties. By choosing to use Flat Fee Broker Services vs Full Service Broker you have already saved thousands of dollars in commission by not having to pay 3% to your listing Broker.
