There's no doubt about it, being listed in MLS (Multiple Listing Service) is the best way for you to successfully sell your home. As a matter of fact, up to 90% of all homes that are sold in the United States are sold as a direct result of being listed in MLS. One of the things that you may not understand about MLS, however, is that you need to have a real estate agent list the house for you because they are the only ones that are going to have access to MLS. You can either agree to pay a real estate agent a percentage of the sale or you can go with one of the flat fee real estate brokers that are available. Flat fee real estate brokers generally accept a one-time flat fee to list your house in MLS.
If you agree to pay a percentage of the sale the typical commission the seller pays is 6% of the final sale price. This can amount to thousands of dollars. While the commission may be negotiable, in most cases real estate brokers will not allow their agents to cut their commission. Therefore, one of the top reasons why you would want to list your home with a flat fee broker is it will save you a great deal of money.
However, you must realize that after you pay your one-time flat fee you will not receive the full services of a typical real estate agent. In fact, YOU become the real estate agent. Of course, different flat fee real estate brokers offer different packages. Some offer signs, lockboxes, and other marketing tools while some do not. That is why it is best to research various flat fee real estate brokers to find the one that provides the best package for the best price.
Flat fee real estate brokers can save you thousands of dollars in real estate commissions. If you're looking for the best flat fee package to sell your Florida home then make sure to contact Tanya Waxler at http://www.uKeepCommission.com or call 941-465-9207
