MLS Listing Service
Flat Fee Real Estate Options
Flat fee MLS refers to the real estate industry's procedure of inputting a Florida seller's property information for sale or for rent into the database of their local Multiple Listing Service (MLS) for one flat fee-- rather than on a commission basis. The added benefits to listing flat fee in the MLS with ADDvantage™ flat fee MLS is that sellers from Miami and Ft. Lauderdale and even those listing their property for sale in Tallahassee or Gainesville can actually receive more real estate “service”.
Often, flat fee MLS companies are not licensed brokers but are website platforms designed to capture money for flat fee listings which then refer out the listing to a broker for inputting. These websites and are unable to offer contract representation or full service real estate options directly. Should the seller decide they need assistance with offers or contracts, the process of doing so is not necessarily available or clear. ADDvantage™ offers full service real estate options such as unlimited contract negotiations and contract writing for the seller who needs more service. Sellers can obtain disclosures and inspections and an ADDvantage™ Real Estate Network broker will deal with all contracts, no matter how many it takes. This is just an example of some of the features our full service plan ADDvantage PLUS™ offers sellers. When a seller opts for Agent Assure®, our phone number will be published in all advertising locations including the seller's yard sign, internet ads and MLS. ADDvantage will manage all incoming calls, coordinate all showings with you and the potential buyer or Realtor® and then document all buyers leads & facilitate buyers and Realtors® with requests for info. That's just a snapshot of some of what we offer in our flat fee MLS plans. FSBOs receive all of the advantages and features of MLS ADDvantage® but, at any time may upgrade their flat fee service to include representation.
Additionally, marketing is essential for FSBOs and rentals. Not only is it crucial to list your Tampa or Miami home properly in your local MLS but also to market your home nationally and internationally on the many real estate and other website portals that buyers frequent. Savvy buyers know how to find their Florida dream home or rental on the internet without employing a Realtor®. If your flat fee MLS Company doesn't offer extensive internet marketing like sellers get from MLS ADDvantage®, then your money isn't being well spent. Again, not all Florida flat fee multiple listing services can accomplish this for a seller. The highest level of exposure for your home, condo, land or rental property is what a seller needs to get their home sold.
