Listing flat fee MLS in Orlando's Mid-Florida Regional MLS gives by-owners a huge advantage over those selling just on a FSBO websites. There are over 20,000 Realtors® in Orlando and most buyers these days rely on local Realtors® to sift through the maze of properties for sale.

In today's competitive real estate market, by owners need every marketing advantage possible. There are 3 marketing power-houses that every by owner needs to be listed on to have a chance to sell. The big 3 are Realtor.com, the local MLS, and Homes.com. Listing flat fee in the MLS with ADDvantage instantly places your Orlando home on these important websites.

Flat rate MLS listings are more popular today than at any other time in the past. Some sellers use flat fee because they can't afford to pay a 6% commission. Others list flat fee in Orlando to keep control over marketing. The last reason to list flat fee in MLS is it allows “by-owners” to sell themselves and pay no commission at all.
