If you are thinking of selling your house, have you considered going this with Flat Fee MLS listing? Or, if you are like most people selling their homes today, maybe you have never given any though to this option?

There are some facts to consider before signing a contract with a real estate agent. In most cases it is a big commission you promise to pay for services provided selling your house. That is a huge chunk of money for, in far too many cases, not all that much work.

In trade group polls of people who have recently sold a home, many of them report that they do not feel like the agent worked very hard to sell their home, and that the commission they got was not justified. There is a reason so many of them feel that way it is often the case that the listing agent does not do all that much to sell a house. Help set a price (not even often satisfied), take some photo, put a sign in the yard, and list it with the MLS service. The major goal is to get a listing, exclusive authority to sell property house.

And guess what? In the vast majority of cases, the house sells not because the listing agent recommended it to a client and educated prospective buyers, but because a prospective home buyer saw property in the MLS and asked another agent to show it to them. Remember, the listing agent is not the one bringing the buyer to your home. Most agents list as many houses as possible, and find themselves with far too many to effectively market. But they know that once a house is on the MLS, odds are good someone will see it and make an offer.

With a Flat Fee MLS listing, you can save thousand of dollars. And while many sellers would like an agent to help them with contracts and the legal paper work that needs to be done, it is easy and a tremendous amount less money to hire a real estate attorney to review the legal documents, before you sign. Most transactions, though, are pretty straightforward.

Many sellers do not even realize that they can sell or lease their property on the MLS without paying high commissions to the listing broker. Using a Flat Fee Listing Services is a great way to market your property on MLS and Realtor.ca and sell it as a FSBO using these resources.
So why pay thousands and get little in return? The listing is the key factor, and with a Flat Fee MLS listing you can get your house seen, sold and save thousands of dollars.
