FAQs

  • How long will my listing be on the MLS?
    Your property will remain visible on your local MLS for six months or until your home sells (whichever comes first).
  • How many photos can I add to my listing?
    Our standard MLS listing comes with 6 photos, however, you can upgrade to as many as 25 photos with our Premium MLS Listing. The more photos you upload, the better! Photos help homes sell.
  • How do potential buyers communicate with me?
    Your listing will include your contact information in the agent notes section of the MLS listing. Some buyers still may end up still contacting the MLS Broker and those communications (emails and voice messages) will be forwarded to you. You can respond directly to the prospective buyers.
  • Will my contact information be visible on the MLS Listing?
    Your contact information will be visible on the MLS listing. However, only agents with access to the MLS and will be able to see that contact information. Agents who see your house on the MLS will have your contact information and can contact you directly.
  • Whose phone number shows up with my listing at Realtor.com and Zillow?
    Realtor.com always requires that the MLS Broker’s phone number be published with each listing. Inquiries received by the MLS Broker will be forwarded on to you. Your basic listing on Fizber.com will continue to have all of your information and inquiries on Fizber.com will also be send directly to you.
  • Who shows my home to interested buyers?
    Once your listing is posted, to the extent your state permits, you will be primarily responsible for the logistics of your sale. This includes: scheduling and showing your home to prospective buyers, preparing and presenting any supplemental marketing materials, negotiating your deal and cooperating in all closing procedures.
  • Will real estate agents want to show my house if I list it with a Flat Fee MLS Broker?
    They will if you are offering a competitive commission for the buyer’s agent and the listing price is competitive. Any agent that is going to earn a buyer’s agent commission will be willing to show your home. For them it is no different than if it is listed with a competitor. However, it is important for your house to be priced competitively. A listing price that is too high will dramatically reduce the number of showings.
  • What commission rate do I need to offer a Buyers Agent if I list with the Flat Fee MLS Broker?
    You decide the commission, from 1 percent to 3 percent. Fizber recommends offering buyers’ agents the traditional 2.5 or 3 percent buy-side commission. That means that you keep the 2.5 or 3 percent commission that usually goes to a listing agent, retaining that portion of your home equity for yourself.
  • Can I still market my home FSBO? If I find the buyer myself and there is no agent involved, how much total commission will I owe if I listed with a Flat Fee MLS Broker?
    None! With the exception of a few areas in the U.S. For example, the Atlanta metro area, customers must pay a 0.12% (.0012) fee at settlement for FMLS. We will notify you if your home is located in an exception area after your purchase. If you decide you do not want to move forward (prior to listing), we will refund your purchase.
  • How long does it take to get my listing on the MLS?
    Your listing will appear the same day or on the next business day, after you return the completed forms to your MLS Broker.
  • Why do some houses not sell with the Flat Fee MLS?
    There can be a number of different reasons why this occurs, however, this is mainly due to the following: the asking price is too high; the offered commission is too low; the seller is not available for showings and is unresponsive to buyers’ inquiries; or there is an unaddressed material defect on the property.
  • What if we want to pull our home off the market?
    No problem! Simply send your MLS Broker a written cancellation request with all owners’ signatures and they will promptly cancel your listing contract. In some markets, a cancellation fee may apply. Please note that you can not cancel a listing for the purposes of avoiding paying a Buyers Agent an earned commission.
  • What happens when my Flat Fee MLS Listing expires?
    Listings may be extended beyond the six months for a discounted fee. Please contact us directly regarding this.
  • What if we later decide we want to list our house with a Full-Service Agent?
    No problem! All you have to do is cancel your Fizber Flat Fee MLS Listing before signing with a full-service agent. If you need help finding a top agent in your area, we can also refer you to an experienced agent (different from the brokers that exclusively perform Flat Fee MLS Listings).
  • Does the Flat Fee MLS come with a yard sign?
    Some local MLS rules do not allow For Sale By Owner signs to be utilized when a home is placed on the MLS. Because of this our Flat Fee MLS does not include a yard sign. However, the local MLS broker that is helping you get on the MLS will let you know if yard signs are an option in your area and what the additional cost may be.

Many home sellers are unaware that they can get their home listed on the MLS without paying 4-6% commission to an agent.

The Flat Fee MLS product is a great option for these home sellers to get their home on the MLS without paying a full commission. This can help home sellers save thousands of dollars when selling their home. With a Flat Fee MLS offering, home sellers are able to post their property on the local MLS through this a la carte option.

Flat Fee MLS History

In the early 1990’s an agent in Florida owned a brokerage and started offering a la cart services to his clients. When home sellers purchased these a la cart services from him, he would accept a flat fee instead of a percentage of the sales price when the transaction closed. One of the most popular a la cart options was the Flat Fee MLS listing. The agent would unbundle this service and post the home for sale on the MLS without requiring the home seller to use his other services.

The reason the Flat Fee MLS listing was so popular was it offered the exposure the MLS provides while cutting out the listing side of the commission. Home sellers could now work directly with the buyer’s agent. Home seller’s still need to offer the buyer’s agent a commission. By doing this, they typically save about half of the commission. As home prices have increased over the years, this saving has become very significant to home sellers.

The Flat Fee MLS has dramatically changes the way home sellers think about selling their home. It is also a very different way of selling a home from the traditional method. Over the last 25-30 years, technology has empowered the home seller to control several aspects of the home sales process that were very difficult to manage before the internet era. As home sellers utilize technology to sell their home, they will be able to cut down costs and keep more money in their pocket. Fizber will continue to empower home sellers to sell their home by owner and save the commission!
