Sell Your Home Using A Flat Fee MLS Listing Service
Using a flat fee MLS listing service to sell your home will save you thousands in commission fees. Using a traditional agent to sell a $400,000 dollar home will cost about $24K in commissions! Using a flat fee listing service to sell by owner will cost a one time flat fee plus a commission to the buyer's agent (if one is involved).
Money aside, there is one more advantage to selling your home by owner (FSBO); Control. Using a flat fee listing broker the “for sale by owner” is in control of their listing 100% of the time. MySecretAgent allows all FSBO homeowners to be in control of their listing 24 hours a day via online account. You can change the price, photos, description, etc any time. The seller handles showing appointments (besides who knows a home better than the seller), controls access to the property and answers questions about the property. Is that work worth 6%? We at MySecretAgent don’t think so! Any homeowner selling on their own can do this with the help of listing on the MLS with MySecretAgent.
