It’s No Joke, We Now Offer FREE MLS Flat Fee Listings

This world is all about finding new ways and growing with the times. I had a great conversation with one of our REALTORS just the other day. We discussed the needs of private sellers (FSBO). We noticed a trend with our clients.

  1. They all wanted an MLS listing
  2. They all did not want to pay commission
  3. They all needed help with the listing paperwork
  4. They all didn’t know how to deal with an offer situation

It was a no brainer. Let’s eliminate the up front cost and only charge if we complete a sale. Allow us to handle 100% of the paperwork and offer negotiation and writing. We get paid on closing.

All the seller has to do is show the property, handle the leads and find the buyer.

FREE Mere MLS postings is now the future of FlatPrice.ca!

Do I need to have an agent to sell my home?

No, you don’t! You always had the option to sell things yourself. Now with our flat fee option, we have made this easier for the seller.  For 1 flat fee we offer your listing to be posted to the MLS sites, posted to www.Realtor.ca and your paperwork ready for you to fill out.

Do I Need a REALTOR.ca Listing?

Yes, if you want to maximize your exposure. REALTOR.ca is the #1 go to website to find properties for most buyers. If you want to maximize your value, you should list on REALTOR.ca just because you’ll receive maximum exposure. That’s it in a nutshell!

Exposure is everything.

Why I Started Selling Flat Fee & Mere MLS Postings

I’ve been a licensed REALTOR since 2004. I’ve been around for awhile and I ‘ve been through the transition of new technology. Most of my business for the past 6 years has been through the computer with clients globally.

More and more sellers were looking for more options to have cheaper commissions. Now that, the internet is literally in the palms of most of our hands, people can now list properties themselves.

We all know how to sell products so this is why people have begun selling privately.

Well, I followed the trend and I didn’t want to be left behind. I see Real Estate different in the next few years. The use of a REALTOR will be half of what it is now. Now that’s scary for the agents who are not changing the way they sell real estate.

So that’s it. I wanted to find a better way for people to move properties. I had to grind it out for a few years since it’s a completely new concept that the world has never seen. This brings us to now, where my systems are completely ready for the savvy individuals who want to sell privately and still list on REALTOR.ca for maximum exposure.

The Difference Between Kijiji Listing and FlatPrice.ca Flat Fee Listing

The difference between listing with Kijiji and listing as a mere MLS posting is that the mere MLS posting goes directly on Realtor.ca. Kijiji offers a great platform to advertise your listing along with a flat fee MLS posting.

We strongly suggest finding as many possible places to list your property for free as possible. The more people who see your listing, the phone calls you’ll get.

Definitely list your property with:

  1. FlatPrice.ca Real Estate Brokerage.
    1. We send your listing to Realtor.ca and several other websites.
  2. Kijiji.ca. Make sure you include your MLS# to give a cross reference.

Have You Ever Sold Anything from Kijiji?

If the answer is yes, then you can save thousands of dollars in commissions. Selling a house is not much different than selling a TV on Kijiji. Sure, you’re dealing with a couple hundred thousand dollars more, but other than that it’s not much different. Providing that you do the right things and follow the right steps it should be a seamless process.

1. Always ensure the buyer is qualified. Don’t waste your time.
2. Always obtain a home inspection.
3. Always hold a deposit for the sale and contact your lawyer and or agent to hold it in trust.
4. Always get an agreement of purchase and sales signed and make sure it’s legal. You can upgrade your package or contact your lawyer.
5. Always have your lawyer close the deal and let them find any errors if any.

The Difference Between Mere MLS Posting, Flat Fee, FSBO, Private Seller?

Mere MLS posting and Flat fee listings usually indicate that the seller did list with a REALTOR such as FlatPrice.ca Real Estate Brokerage and listed it as a mere posting. They usually offer a commission, however this is optional.

FSBO stands for FOR SALE BY OWNER. FSBO and private seller is someone selling a home without the use of a REALTOR. They usually are not posting with a real estate agent such as FlatPrice.ca and selling strictly private.

Why Agents Hate Flat Fee Listings and Mere MLS Postings?

Simply put. They don’t get paid! Most agents give private sellers a hard time. Most also don’t understand that most private sellers will offer a commission if the price is right.

Just a suggestions, if an agent gives you a call let them know right away if you are offering a commission. IF they give you a hard time, then wish them luck and on they go.

Flat fee listings and why you should try it first?

Most people these days can sell pretty much anything themselves. The power of the internet has really given people options. Same goes for Real Estate. Why not try it first? Even if we use a full service realtor we still have to pay a lawyer to close the deal. How often do you hear horror stories about being cheated selling property these days?

At least give it a try for 30 days. Just make sure which ever company you choose that they have no cancellation fees. List it flat fee and have a chance to save thousands in commissions!
