What is a flat fee listing typically?
A flat fee listing means you pay a set dollar amount to a real estate company to list your home for sale. Most flat fee listing companies charge you anywhere from $200-$500 to place your house on their websites or they may charge a flat fee just to put you in the multiple listing service ( MLS). The MLS is the system that is used by most real estate companies to market a property. The MLS connects its search engines with most major namebrand real estate websites around the world.
Many of the flat fee companies don't assist you in the selling of your home except to put it in the MLS. You as the homeowner are responsible for putting your own sign in the yard, showing your own property, negotiating your own transaction and creating your own contracts.
