Flat Fee MLS Services
How Does Flat Fee MLS Work?
When you are considering selling your home and also wish to save thousands in the process; you want to list with Colorado Flat Fee Realty, Inc.; the industry leader in providing the revolutionary and complete Flat Fee MLS., who will make sure you keep more of your hard earned equity and benefit from the full traditional real estate services you deserve.
There are many real estate companies who provide a flat fee MLS listing because they know you want to save money and they also know you cannot access many of the high ranking MLS websites both in your area and nationally without the benefit of using a licensed realtor who is a member of one or more board of realtors. Typically the charge is a flat rate fee around $300 to $500 for the privilege of using their license and they even offer for an additional fee; what they claim to be full service with a licensed agent/broker. But it is important to ask who the agent/broker is and if they actually are licensed in your state. Even if they are, you need to know if they reside in your state and know anything about your market area. There are many sites and more cropping up every day that offers these type of services. They sell the rights to cover a state and the actual agent/broker lives out of state with little to no knowledge of your area. This means you will never actually meet your so called broker face to face, nor will they ever physically view your home. This is important to consider; do you really want an out of state broker possibly with no real knowledge of your neighborhood or your actual home handling your market analysis or negotiations. You may at first think paying a low fee for limited services which may include your home being listed on the MLS is a deal, yet in the long run, it may cost you in areas you may not even have considered.
Although the MLS is an amazing tool to sell a property; you need more than just a posting on a few websites to realize your goal of successfully selling your home and keeping a substantial amount of your equity. You also need someone who has years of experience in your area because they also live and work there, to not only sell your home but also help you in locating a new home and can perform the multiple tasks found in traditional real estate services to protect all of your interests; and get the best price in order to save thousands.
There are many things that may be overlooked by an inexperienced home seller who hasn’t had the opportunity to work with a true professional. For instance; a broker who is educated and experienced in real estate sales rules and licensed by regulations. A broker who works specifically for you as the seller’s agent and not a transaction broker; who when an offer is submitted will engage in the tough negotiations process on your behalf only. With your discounted listing fees you should get a seasoned realtor who is watching your back; a transaction broker has no contractual obligation to either the seller or the buyer. Your broker should be experienced in your area. A broker who can help with unexpected issues that may arise from a buyer’s home inspection, and who will coordinate the title work and closing procedures.
With a flat fee MLS you should expect no less than dealing directly with a licensed full service local professional broker. Starting with meeting face to face at your home and will begin by listening to your specific sellers’ needs and goals and will proceed by guiding you with experienced advise on how to prepare your home in preparation for your listing to go active. You should expect your home to be launched with extensive exposure; not only through your local MLS but other advertising platforms both nationally and internationally to attract potential buyers. You should want and expect a flat fee MLS company who provides showing service adept at fielding the phone calls and/or emails requesting a viewing or any other information about you and your home. Someone who is experienced and follows regulations regarding screening those inquiries properly to assure your home is only opened up to a serious buyer and not someone with a completely different agenda. They will use their experience to assure no one accessing your home other than a qualified potential purchaser accompanied by a licensed agent who will also provide prompt feedback after your home is shown. With full traditional realtor services, this is one of the normal duties handled by your listing broker.
On top of all of that other traditional services which should also be supplied within the scope of a Flat Fee MLS include a beautiful yard sign professionally installed; as well as professional photos of your home so that it is displayed in the best manner to grab the interest of a potential buyer searching the internet?
A discount real estate broker who also provides the benefit of the state of the art technology that provides convenient digital signatures; meaning all offers, contracts, and other relevant documents can be handled from the convenience of your home or anywhere you have access to a cell phone, tablet or laptop. These are just some of the services you should be asking about regardless of what you are paying; as in many states, especially Colorado, limited services listings are prohibited by law. Although there are still many who will still take your money and provide less even though they know better.
At Colorado Flat Fee Realty, Inc.; “You pay less Keep More” means; as a seller, your main interest of retaining more of your equity is our top priority. There is no reason to pay 5 or 6% commission or greater to get your home sold. Nor should you have to settle for less with a discounted fee only to have to do all the work yourself. You can save money with a Flat Fee MLS and receive all the traditional Real Estate Services by listing your home with one of our licensed professional real estate brokers who are supported by a full staff.
