Flat Fee MLS, Sale By Owner Listing Providers

October 5th, 2009

Flat Fee MLS Listing

Flat Fee MLS Listing $199-$499 — CLICK HERE is a way of listing your home on the MLS and various public web sites, such as Realtor.com®, for a Flat Fee (paid at time of listing), instead of a commission of ±5-6% which is normally paid at closing.  If a buyer’s broker sells your home, you would still have to pay that broker ±2½-3% but sometimes there is no buyer’s broker and the flat fee alone ends up being your total cost to sell. Research has shown that this is the most cost effective way to market your home on the MLS. The reason that listing you home on the MLS for a Flat Fee is most cost effective is because you are getting all the marketing services that “traditional agents” use for a much lower cost. Most Flat Fee MLS Listing companies even allow you to sell your home as a For Sale By Owner while being listed. This is a great way to save even more money because a potential buyer may see your home on a web site, and contact you directly, saving you thousands in commissions. Traditional real estate companies will sometimes let you sell your own home, but more often than not you will owe that company a high commission.  With Flat Fee MLS companies, you will only ever owe a partial (½) commission to the broker that finds a buyer and only if there is such a broker; never if you find the buyer without another brokers assistance. Flat Fee MLS Listing is the best way to sell your home, period!

You will find many Flat Fee MLS Listing companies on the internet, so how do you know a legitimate company, when you find one. Flat Fee MLS Marketing has done the homework for you. There is a national group of Flat Fee MLS brokers that has formed a co-op. The name of the organization is Broker Direct MLS.  They can be found on the web at  www.BrokerDirectMLS.com. Broker Direct MLS has been in existence since 2003 while many of the brokers in the group have been providing flat fee listing services since the 90s. Also, Broker Direct MLS brokers mean just what they say.  They are Broker Direct; no middleman unlicensed referral companies.  Deal Direct and save with a locally licensed broker. All the brokers in the group have been in the Flat Fee MLS Listing business for a long time and are very successful. There are other good companies out there, but all the brokers in www.BrokerDirectMLS.com are time tested and very good at what they do

Article By EzineArticles.com:

For Sale By Owner listing in flat fee MLS is not only meant for investors, but is also meant for all home owners who really look to save some money for them. Saving money for bad times is every one’s wish and listing as for sale by owner fulfils this for any property owner. If we look around us every second home these days is listed in MLS listing as for sale by owner and gets sold in quick time. In the same way flat fee MLS has grown a lot in popularity among home owners which has really saved them thousands of dollars.

For once try to think of people whom you know and have sold their property in traditional way. You will see that they spent a lot of time entertaining the buyers or buyers’ agent. Not only they had to spent hell of a time but also had to spend a lot in placing advertisements and distributing flyers. This is totally adverse with the home owners who have listed in MLS listing and that too as for sale by owner. They had to spend very less time showing every now and then to potential buyers and saved huge sum in paying sales commission. We all know that MLS listing has been in demand with home owners either looking to sell or rent and they have gained in double by listing the same as for sale by owner.

Nations first Coop Advertising Group for Flat Fee MLS Listing Real Estate Brokers turns 4 years old.

March 10th, 2008

By FFMLSM Staff Writer:

Flat Fee MLS Listing – In January of 2004 a savvy group of brokers had a novel concept.  At the time, IP based searching was in its infancy and Texas Broker Jack McLemore (WhyMLS.com) noticed that national advertisers had an advantage in Pay Per Click advertising (PPC) that local IP based advertising could not compete with.  Shortly thereafter he teamed up with Schaunon Winter (BrokerDirectMLSCo.com), and Derek Eisenberg (MultipleListingSystem.com) to form the first cooperative advertising group to market Flat Fee MLS listings on Google, Yahoo and Microsoft.  Soon after, Jeff Kermath (AmeriSellIt.com) and Richard Webber (HomeworksRE.com) joined as partners followed by over 20 affiliates in over 42 states.

 Coops have been around for years.  They are found in small pharmacies and hardware stores that want to compete with the big chains but they are somewhat new to PPC advertising.  Through Broker Direct’s cooperative efforts, an affiliate of Broker Direct is usually in the top two sponsored link positions at any given time for all key flat fee mls list advertising terms.

The Broker Direct Group, LLC currently operates several websites including AmeriOwner.com, ForSaleByOwnerMart.com, ListByOwnerOnMLS.comListFlatFeeMLS.com, and SaleByOwnerAmerica.com.
