In this May 2019 edition of our real estate podcast, we discuss Flat Fee MLS.
When it comes to the ways a homeowner can put their home on the market, there is now a new addition to the playing field…. Flat Fee MLS brokerage.
But is this option for everyone looking to sell their home?
And, if you choose to go with a Flat Fee MLS service instead of a Full Brokerage listing, what are the pros and the cons?
In this episode of the Bortz Team Real Estate Podcast, we will discuss the pros and cons of a Flat Fee MLS listing.
Did you know that on a Flat Fee MLS service you have to do everything yourself?
You are only paying to be placed on the MLS, similar to running an ad.
But what about the photos, the marketing, the syndication to other real estate portals, negotiations, home staging, contract preparation, etc?
And … what if you get something wrong and open yourself up to a future lawsuit because of disclosure and other laws you may not know about?
Sure, there are consumers out there who have gotten burned by bad real estate agents, or wasted a lot of time on the market with an agent who did absolutely nothing for their home.
The key is to find the RIGHT agent to market your home. We did a podcast on that subject in 2018, you can listen here.
Or on our website here.
In the end, the question becomes are you really saving money when you do not have a listing agent to help you?
Or are you leaving a lot of money on the table because you do not have the negotiation skills required to show a buyer why your home is worth the price you are asking?
This podcast touches on real life examples of problems we have encountered and seen in our business.
And it’s the very first podcast we have available in video format on our YouTube channel.
