Do Flat Fee MLS Listings Work? The Truth from a Texas Broker with 10 Years of Experience
As the owner of TexasMLSBroker.com, a flat fee MLS listing service, I understand the skepticism that many homeowners have when considering this type of listing option. After all, traditional real estate agents often charge a commission that can be as high as 6% of the sale price of a home. So, can flat fee MLS listings really work? The answer is a resounding yes.
First, let's define what a flat fee MLS listing is. Essentially, it means that instead of paying a commission to a traditional real estate agent, the homeowner pays a flat fee to have their home listed on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). This fee can range anywhere from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars, depending on the service being offered.
So, why would a homeowner choose a flat fee MLS listing over a traditional listing?
There are a few reasons:
As a brokerage with 10 years of real world knowledge and experience, we have helped many homeowners successfully sell their homes through flat fee MLS listings. In fact, our listings have sold for an average of 96% of the asking price, which is on par with traditional listings.
It's important to note that flat fee MLS listings may not be the right option for every homeowner. For example, if a homeowner is not comfortable showing their own home or negotiating offers, then a traditional listing may be a better option. However, for homeowners who are willing to take on a bit more responsibility, a flat fee MLS listing can be a great way to save money while still getting the exposure and control they need to sell their home.
At TexasMLSBroker.com, we offer a variety of flat fee MLS listing packages to fit the needs of every homeowner. Our listing broker can work with you to determine the best package for your home and your needs.
