List your home on the MLS for a one time flat fee
Listing on the MLS is the smartest way to sell a home because you reach active buyers with a need to find a home in the next 30-60 days. Escrow and closing are faster when selling to buyers found through the MLS because they have been pre-screened by their agents. You retain the freedom to sell to any independent buyer you find and pay 0% commission.
Our Flat Fee MLS Listing Package includes:
6-month listing on your local Multiple Listing Service (MLS)
Listing on Realtor.com®, the Internet's largest national real estate website

Listing on Owners.com, the largest For Sale By Owner website (a $50 value if purchased separately). Features include unlimited photos, real-time visitor tracking, highlight in search results and it remains active until sold.
The right to sell 'by owner'. If you find an independent buyer, you save all of the money and pay no commission at all.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is the Multiple Listing Service (MLS)?
The MLS is a database of homes for sale. Agents use the MLS to find homes for buyers that they represent. Listing a home on the MLS notifies all local brokers that your home is for sale. Only licensed real estate agents, brokers and realtors can list property for sale on the MLS.
Q. Is it Difficult to Sell without an Agent?
Thousands of people just like you have sold their home by owner and saved thousands in commission. It does require some planning and work, but it's not complicated. If you use the tools and support we offer including our sellers checklists and handbook, you can sell as good as a professional. In the end you care more about your sale and know your property better than any agent.Call us if you have any questions about how it works or what to do next (800) 475-7738. Although our agents place the listing on the MLS for you, calls and inquiries from interested buyers will be referred directly to you.
Q. How does the MLS Help Me Sell My Home?
Real estate agents use the MLS almost exclusively to search for homes for their clients. Over 80% of buyers are represented by agents, so it is a "must have" if you want to reach the most buyers and receive the most offers. In other words, if you don’t list on the MLS you'll be missing out on reaching 4 out of 5 buyers.The truth is most sellers' agents don't go looking for buyers; they simply list a house on the local MLS and then talk to the buyers' agents who find them there. You can use this same professional tool and save 3% in seller agent commissions. Call if you have more questions. We are happy to explain the process step by step.
