4 most common listing errors Florida flat fee MLS home sellers may encounter with their MLS listing:

  1. The property doesn't appear on a local Realtor® website (such as remax.com). This has to do with IDX feeds. IDX feeds allow real estate websites such as remax.com to download the listing from the MLS in a given geographical area so buyers can view all MLS listed properties-not just those of Remax. To get your flat fee MLS Florida listing to properly appear on all local Realtor® websites, the Florida flat fee MLS listing broker must complete all necessary paper work with the local MLS as well as the National Association of Realtors®. ADDvantage™ has authorized all MLS boards to feed all real estate websites using IDX through the National Association of Realtors®.
  2. A local Realtor® cannot find my flat fee MLS listing. Local Realtors® can only view listings inputted through their local MLS board. If your listing is not showing up: (a) your Florida flat fee MLS broker put the flat fee MLS listing through the wrong Florida MLS board; (b) the broker may have an error in the listing data such as: quantity of bedrooms or baths; subdivision or complex name name; MLS area/grid; price; zip code; category (townhouse, condo, single family); waterfront types (waterfront, water view and water access).
  3. I can't find the MLS listing on Realtor.com. The issue could be: (a) the listing is not in the MLS; (2) it takes 24-48 business hours to show up on Realtor.com from the time it was inputted to the MLS
  4. Where are my “buyer leads” from Realtor.com? Why haven't I had more Realtor® showing requests? Buyer leads are a subject of controversy in the Florida flat fee MLS business. At ADDvantage™, we have a buyer lead capture system that forwards all buyer leads from Realtor.com, Homes.com and other sources directly to the Florida flat fee MLS seller by email in real time. As far the rest of the Florida flat fee MLS services, caveat emptor! Please read our expose on where your Realtor.com buyer leads go as it's often not to you. As far as Realtor® showings, 60% of Realtor® showing requests are made directly with the Florida flat fee MLS seller and the other 40% come to the Florida flat fee MLS broker of record. If the MLS flat fee service is not answering their phone consistently, as many do not, then you could be losing Realtor® showings.

  3. No cancellation fees and/or referral kick-backs: ADDvantage™ doesn't charge cancellation fees or take referral kick-back commissions. Whether or not a Florida discount real estate broker charges cancellation fees and referral kick-backs has to do with honesty and integrity. While experience doesn't necessarily equate with honesty, a broker's record of complaints can reveal whether prior clients have felt they have been dealt with in an unethical manner. Before listing, do some research about the broker (via DBPR licensee search online) and MLS listing company itself (just by plugging in the name of the company followed by “lawsuit” can sometimes turn up information and blog entries from consumers that warn against unscrupulous FSBO and MLS listing companies and this will ultimately save you money and hassles. For example, plugging in “Buy Owner lawsuits” into Google's search brings up an interesting blog: http://www.complaintsboard.com/complaints/buyownercom-c537/page/1.html#c10572).
