  • Step 2: Our MLS packages are serviced via an outside brokerage partner agent, the Agent will contact you soon after your order to help guide you through the process and to help you understand local MLS rules and regulations. They will also guide you through the execution of the necessary documents to get your property listed in the MLS.
  • Step 3: Once you've formally engaged with your agent, which will require executing a Listing Agreement among other documents, your property will be placed in the MLS within 72 hours.

MLS boards are independent and vary across the country. As a result, the process above varies slightly based upon your location, and in some areas the local MLS requires additional fees.

Our by-owner-friendly brokers have chosen to forego a commission-based business model and work for a flat fee so they can have a higher volume of customers.

No. While some for-sale-by-owner sites might charge you additional fees, a key benefit of getting listed with the Deluxe MLS package is that an MLS listing is part of the many services delivered to you by your agent. There are NO additional fees for the MLS listing beyond what you may have paid to purchase your listing package or any real estate commissions you have agreed to pay per the listing package you selected.

You decide the amount you are willing to pay between 2-3% of the sale price of your home.
Yes. Our Broker Affiliate has already agreed to list the property for a flat fee so the listing commission is no longer a factor. The buyer's agent will get the full 2-3% if they bring a buyer, which is equal to a full commission.

Because you selected, you will coordinate all property showings, including conducting Open Houses based upon your desire and availability. That's the flexibility we offer you as a do it yourself customer.

You gain tremendous exposure to tens of thousands of agents and their potential buyers. Many buyers use real estate agents, and these agents use the MLS as their main tool to find homes for their buyers.

You also control the process and save money, too. There is "No-Fee" to get your home on the local MLS.

No. Your agents will be the "Showing Contact" on your listing in the MLS, meaning that buyers' agents (and buyers) will contact your agent directly. Your agent will field all questions about your property.

The MLS (Multiple Listing Service) is a local real estate database that agents browse to find for-sale listings for their potential buyers. It is the primary database that real estate agents use to find properties for sale. 80% of all properties sold have used the MLS as a primary means of marketing.

With a Deluxe MLS package you will have your property listed in the MLS with professional photos and a marketing description designed to attract prospective buyers and the real estate agents who represent them.

Photo quantities on your MLS listings are subjected to vary by MLS. Your agent will provide you with specific guidance about your local MLS, and you can rest assured knowing that they will submit as many photos as needed to showcase your home and stimulate interest.

Your listing will remain in the MLS for the duration of your Listing Agreement.
