Is a Flat Fee Realty Service Really a Better Option?

With a flat fee listing service Minneapolis, MN home sellers can have their homes listed on the MLS for a flat fee, as the name implies. The real estate broker licensed by the state offering this service will often not only list the property, but also offer additional services to help the homeowner sell the home, including marketing assistance. At Real Estate Corners, Inc., our flat fee MLS service gets your home the visibility it needs for eager buyers in the market to see it.

For Sale By Owner (FSBO)

With a pure For Sale By Owner service, the flat fee listing provider will list your home on the MLS. The provider will also offer additional support such as brochures, a yard sign, negotiation assistance, and more. This is not the same, however, as working with a full-service real estate agent.

Full Representation Services Option

With a full representation option from a flat fee listing service, you can still access a bevy of services for a flat fee to help you sell your home. The listing service provider will do all of the work selling your home, or as much as you want them to do. This is an advantageous option because the more help you can receive with the selling process and handling financial and legal aspects of the transaction, the smoother the entire process will go.

Save Thousands With A Flat Fee MLS Listing

With a flat fee MLS service, Minneapolis, MN home sellers will save at least 50% on typical agent commissions. The 50% saved is the amount a full-service listing agent for the seller would receive. This amounts to several thousands of dollars on many home sales. If you happen to find a buyer who is not represented by a buyer’s agent, you would also not have to pay a buyer’s agent commission. Otherwise, you would still owe that commission from the selling price of the home.

The amount you can save using a flat fee listing service depends on the selling price of your home and the standard commission rate in your area, whether greater Minneapolis, MN, or elsewhere.

So, for many home sellers, a flat fee realty service is the better option.
