ADDvantage™ has earned the reputation as the number one trusted source for flat fee MLS listings in Miami. Keith Gordon, broker for ADDvantage ™ Florida says, “We have earned this reputation the hard way, 9 hours at a time. ADDvantage™ is the only Miami flat fee MLS service that answers their phone live 9:00am-6:00pm–7 days a week. Other companies might offer flat fee MLS listing in Miami-Dade but all of these flat fee MLS services offer limited phone coverage. ADDvantage™ is the only Miami flat fee MLS service that is trusted day in day out to answer their phone 9:00am-6:00pm, 7 days a week.”

Many Miami home sellers already understand that the flat fee MLS (broker's) company phone number is published in the MLS by default, along with the Miami home seller's number (displayed in the agent remarks section of the SE Florida Regional MLS). That means Realtor®; calls are shared between the flat fee MLS seller and the flat fee MLS service. As well, Keith Gordon says “about 60% of the Realtors® do call the home seller directly after reading the showing instructions in the MLS which states, for example, ‘call seller directly at (305) 555-1234’ but not all Realtors® follow instructions; they simply call us out of habit. That's fine because we have built our reputation around serving the Realtors® and our clients with our unique brand of flat fee MLS service which is 9:00am-6:00pm live phone coverage.”

The other benefit Miami flat fee MLS sellers enjoy when listing flat fee MLS with ADDvantage™ is that we back them up. If and when a seller is unavailable to field a call, the Realtor® will invariably call ADDvantage™. We never miss a call, 7 days a week. That is what ADDvantage™ means by a trusted source for Miami flat fee MLS sellers.

Our reliable flat fee MLS service doesn't stop at live 9:00am-6:00pm phone coverage. We offer Agent Assure® for the Miami flat fee MLS seller who wants more peace of mind. This concierge service takes the worry out of listing flat fee in the MLS because we replace the Miami flat fee MLS listed seller's phone number with ours. This way, sellers don't have to stress over missing a potential buyer lead phone call or Realtor® call for a showing. Wherever we advertise, in the Miami MLS, in Homes.com, Realtor.com (by default, always the broker's number anyway per the rules of Realtor.com) and even the yard sign is replaced with our number. “This is great service to offer flat fee MLS sellers,” says Keith “because it frees up the Miami seller and places ADDvantage's™ 9:00am-6:00pm reliable live phone support in charge of handling and scheduling all appointments. Whenever we are involved, it seems as though the sale goes better. Agent Assure® opens the communication lines between the flat fee MLS seller and the Realtor®. In general, Agent Assure® gives the flat fee MLS seller in Miami an arrangement much like full service.” Agent Assure is $159 for the length of the listing.

Another innovative flat fee MLS based service offered by ADDvantage™, Agent Activate®, is now available to Miami-Dade sellers. When Agent Activate® is turned on, our own Realtor® participates in the flat fee MLS selling process only when an unrepresented buyer needs to be shown and sold the home and the seller is not available to do so. Agent Activate® was designed for the flat fee MLS seller that can lock box the Miami property and is too busy to deal with showings and buyers (possibly lives out of state or too far from the Miami MLS listed property). The Miami flat fee MLS listed seller pays only the buyer's agent commission regardless of who sells the property. For example, if the flat fee MLS seller is offering 3%, that 3% commission will be earned either by an ADDvantage™ agent or another agent from an outside real estate brokerage firm. This free flat fee MLS opt-in service is very popular because it ensures that a Realtor® will always be involved in the transaction, costs the seller only one side of the commission (buyer's agent commission) and can be turned “on” or “off” with a click. It's like having a full-service listing at half the price.
