What is a Flat Fee MLS Listing?

Answer:

It’s your opportunity to bypass a traditional listing agent and sell your own house on the local MLS through a licensed broker.

What is a flat fee MLS listing?

A flat fee listing is a service provided by a discount broker who is a member of your local Multiple Listing Service. Typically, you would pay 6% commission to a listing agent to list your house and they would split the commission with a buying agent if there is one. When you list with a fully licensed flat fee broker like Creekview Realty, you pay an upfront fee of $495 and only 3% to the buyer’s agent, if there is one.

At Creekview Realty, every $495 flat fee listing package will include:

– Professional MLS listing number for 6 Months – CSS (We are a member of every available CSS market in Texas) – Supra® Electronic Memory Keybox ($50 security deposit required) – Professional yard sign frame and insert – Flyer box – Free website and web-flyer creator – The maximum photos allowed in your local MLS – Every listing is upgraded to a showcase listing on Realtor.comComparative Market Analysis (CMA) to accurately price your home Your MLS listing is set up and displayed in the MLS so it doesn’t look like a “For Sale By Owner” to real estate agents. We provide you with everything you need to properly list and market your home on the local Multiple Listing Service as well as ALL public real estate sites. You stay in control of your sale, like a FSBO, and can cancel your listing at any time. All calls from interested buyers will be directed to you. You will handle the showings and answer all buyer calls and questions. We recommend that you offer the normal 3% commission to a buyer’s agent.

Remember:

If you find a buyer without a real estate agent (unrepresented buyer), you will SAVE the extra 3% you were planning on paying an agent. Approximately 40% of buyers do not have a buyer’s agent to represent them (FSBO buyers). When Creekview is the only agent, the entire sales transaction is completed for $1195 and NO OTHER COMMISSIONS for either side.

Bottomline:

With a Flat Fee MLS Listing, you get the power of the MLS for a fraction of the cost and you only pay for what you need.
