Real Estate America: A Premiere American Flat Fee Mls Broker

Topic: Construction

A flat fee MLS broker can help you sell your home much more affordably than is normally possible with a conventional real estate broker. Real Estate America is a flat fee MLS broker with the infrastructure and experience necessary to help you reap the benefits of this innovative method of listing and selling a property.

If this all sounds too good to be true, realize that flat fee MLS brokerages have been a fixture in the real estate industry for years. MLS stands for "multiple listing service." A multiple listing service is nothing more than a database of real estate listing information, shared among real estate brokers and buyers.

Under ordinary circumstances, the services of a real estate agent come bundled into a large, indivisible suite of services. An MLS listing is usually among these services, but a full suite of services also includes a number of other agent-provided services. Agents providing a full suite of services will conduct open houses, communicate with potential buyers, and even handle contracts and the final transfer of funds from one party to the other.

A flat fee MLS broker is different in the sense that they offer only one type of service: listing in an MLS. All the other things a real estate agent normally does are not done by a flat fee MLS broker, and the bare-bones nature of this type of real estate service, is, naturally, reflected in the price.

The listing fee for a flat fee MLS broker is usually somewhere between $200 and $800, plus a 2.5 to 3 percent commission for a cooperating broker who finds a buyer for the seller's property. This is considerably less than one would ordinarily pay for a full suite of real estate service, which makes using an flat fee MLS broker truly the most cost-effective option for the average seller.

A cheaper alternative to listing with a flat fee MLS broker would be to simply sell one's property without a real estate agent, but doing so puts an enormous burden upon the seller. Selling property yourself requires you to take on all of the job functions of a real estate agent, including advertising and showing the property. This can be a lot of work for one person, or even a small group of people. It's best to enlist professional help--and for a thrifty seller, a flat fee MLS broker is the most cost-effective means of doing that.

A flat-fee MLS broker is less a full-service hireling than a moderately compensated business partner. He or she will provide the bare-bones real estate listing services you need to ensure that a steady stream of interested buyers is actively considering your property. No other method of real estate listing provides such excellent value.
