Here are a collection of frequently asked questions. Feel free to call or send an e-mail. By clicking on any of the questions below, you may view the answer.
Are there buyer's agent commissions?
Yes. If an agent brings a buyer, you only pay the buyer’s agent a commission if you accept the offer. You decide how much commission to offer as part of the MLS listing process. The commission you’re willing to pay is stated on the MLS listing. It is not negotiated on an agent by agent basis. We recommend offering a commission between 2 – 3% since your listing will be competing with others for agent’s attention.

How does the MLS help sell my property?
Listing a property on The MLS notifies all agents that your property is for sale. Over 80% of buyers are represented by agents’ you must connect with them to get the maximum number of offers. The best way to connect with 80% of potential buyers is by listing on The MLS.
The fact is that most seller’s agents do not look for buyers; they simply list a property on The MLS and then speak with buyer’s agents who find the property listed there. You can do the exact same thing and not owe a seller’s agent 3% of your sale price saving you thousands in commission! Please Call 800-699-4480 if you have more questions.

What is the difference between a Full Service Listing and a Flat Fee MLS Listing?
With a traditional full service MLS listing, the agreement generally runs for 6-12 months. The problem for you as the owner is that the full service listing agreement prevents the owner from not paying a full service commission even if the buyer comes directly to the seller without an agent during the listing period. With this type of listing agreement, the seller has very little control of the selling process. Usually, a 6% commission is shared between the listing agent and the selling agent (Sometimes, the listing agent is also the selling agent).
With a Flat Fee MLS, BY OWNER, FSBO listing service the seller does not pay a “listing agent commission” only a commission if a buyers agent brings the seller an acceptable offer. We recommend 2-3% saving the seller thousands! The initial flat fee is used as a marketing fee for listing your property on The MLS, Realtor.com and a extensive host of high volume public web sites. With a Flat Fee MLS, BY OWNER, FSBO listing, if a buyer finds your property without the assistance of a real estate agent, then you would pay no commission – to anyone!

Single family homes, Condos, Town homes, Commercial properties, multi family homes, apartment buildings, Vacant land, lots, Farms, Rentals and Manufactured Homes.
