Frequently Asked Flat Fee MLS Listing Questions

There are just some questions we get asked all the time. Check the list below to see if we’ve already answered yours. If not, feel free to contact us and we just might add your question and answer to the list.

Can I Place a For Sale by Owner sign on my Property?

Yes, but we recommend that you use our sign. It is an “AGENTS WELCOME” sign that informs real estate agents that you are currently listed on the MLS and are willing to offer a commission to buyer’s agents. Those agents who see the sign are likely to search for your listing on the MLS to get more information.

Which Types of Properties Can Be Listed on the MLS?

You may list many different types of real estate:

  • Single-family homes for sale or rent
  • Condos, townhomes, and villas for sale or rent

  • Vacant land and lots for sale
  • Farms for sale

  • Do I Actually Need the MLS and Realtors in Order to Sell my Property?

    The short answer is no. However, attempting to sell or rent your property as a FSBO is not as easily done these days. Statistics show that 92% of all properties sold or rented are MLS listed and linked to,, and plus the MLS local sites. As always, brokers and agents have the ability to filter buyers and help them gain financing for properties. These abilities save you time and frustration comparing to an unknown and often unqualified FSBO buyer.

    What Is the Difference between a Full Service Listing and a Flat Fee Listing?

    A traditional full-service MLS listing typically has restrictions keeping the owner from listing as a FSBO using signage or advertising the property in any way while MLS listed with that brokerage. The traditional commission for an MLS listing is 6% which is shared by the listing agent and the buyer’s agent.

    With an MLS listing with, there is no listing commission to be paid. The flat rate of $95, $125 or $175 is our listing fee. You may sell your property as a FSBO in any form while MLS listed as long as your price is not below the MLS listing price. You must still offer and then make payment to the buyer’s agent when they procure a qualified buyer and you close on your property with that agent and buyer. The MLS does require a buyer’s commission offer. They do not state the amount you must offer but certainly traditional commission amounts will have better agent activity.
