Flat Fee MLS Benefits
Flat Fee MLS is a method of selling your home where instead of entering into an agreement with a real estate professional who does everything for your house sale from listing it to showing it to prospective buyers to negotiating the sale price, you only pick and select certain services that the professional will do for you and paying them a standard (flat) fee rather than a percentage of the sale price as a commission. This method allows the home seller to have all the say in the sale of the house and also makes it possible to save a lot of money in the process. It allows the home seller to list their house with a Multiple Listing Service (MLS) which gives the sale of the house considerable exposure both locally and nationally. Using Flat Fee MLS allows the home seller to have the best of two benefits, substantial exposure and cost savings.
The first and most obvious financial benefit is the saving on real estate professional’s commissions. Under the normal traditional real estate professional’s agreements, the professional usually requires a percentage, also known as a commission, for the services that they have rendered. Under a Flat Flee MLS agreement however the professional only charges a flat fee for certain specific services such as listing the property on the local MLS, negotiating on behalf of the owner or any other service that the home seller agrees to procure form the professional. These savings can be quite high, especially for properties that have a high value. When a home seller opts for a Flat Fee MLS agreement where the professional charged a flat fee, the savings for the home owner potentially stands to save thousands. The savings are not just on the straight commissions but also on other fees that a professional charges. For example many traditional professionals charge a fee if a client changes or cancels their listing before the expiry of a minimum length of service. However under the Flat Fee MLS listing a homeowner can change their listing at any time without incurring any financial penalty.
Another significant advantage to Flat Fee is most service providers stipulate that if the seller finds his own buyer without the use of a buyer's professional, then the buyer's professional commission is eliminated, and the seller owes no professional a commission.
When it comes time for negotiating, the home owner has the flexibility and ability to negotiate the final price with the buyer themselves, or if MLS requires it, the Flat Fee MLS Listing Professional will represent the home seller’s wishes. Also, under the some real estate agreements, when both the buyer and the seller have their own agents, it means that any offers and counteroffers take time to go back and forth since each of them have to go through their different professionals which results in a lengthy negotiation process. In a volatile economic climate this back and forth can cost a lot especially when property prices keep changing. Under a flat fee MLS agreement the faster negotiation can result in financial benefits for the homeowner.
Having to pay the real estate professional’s commissions can also have a bearing on the price and consequently the sale of the house, especially where the value of the house is quite high. It means that the homeowner has a lot more flexibility in how they are going to price the house and how they go about negotiating the final price. Under most Flat Free agreements it is stipulated that when the seller gets a buyer for his house that does not have a professional representing him then the buyer’s professional’s commission is not payable. This therefore means that of both the buyer and the seller have no professionals there are no commissions payable at all which results in more money finding its way into the home owner’s bank account. These stipulations in the MLS agreements make it possible for the homeowner to get a lot more for his house and are therefore yet another financial benefit of selling the property by owner.
