Stop Throwing Your Hard-Earned Equity Down the Drain!
"What Most Real Estate Agents Don't Want You to Know: How to Sell Your Home Quickly and at Maximum Price with an MLS Listing-
and Pay ZERO Commission"
Get your property listed in the powerful Long Island Multiple Listing Service
without hiring a real estate agent and without paying steep commissions
Warning: Home sellers, before you waste your money on excessive listing agent commissions, we strongly encourage you to read the following.
We'd like to let you in on a little secret that most real estate brokers prefer to keep to themselves: Listing agents have been overpaid for decades.
Here's a scenario to illustrate this point: You've decided to sell your home and are ready to put it on the market. You pay a real estate agent a stiff commission (typically 2 to 3% of your home's selling price, which translates into a sizeable chunk of your precious equity) to list your property information in the Real Estate Multiple Listing Service (MLS). You're sure it will be worth the high fee; after all, your agent will surely steer a string of eager buyers your way, right?
Actually, it's quite rare that your listing agent will be the one to sell your property. In fact, 9 times out of 10, a sale takes place when an unknown real estate agent brings in a buyer. Your buyer will most likely find your property listed in the MLS while working with another REALTOR®--not your listing real estate agent. Why? Because your area Long Island MLS has many, many realty members within its network-hundreds or even thousands of brokers and agents. So the odds of that one agent-your listing agent-bringing you a buyer is very slim.
No, the cold, hard reality is (and few real estate agents will admit to this, for obvious reasons) that the typical sales process which leads to a successful property sale really has little, if anything, to do with the listing agent.
And, if that's not bad enough, the high commission commanded by that listing agent-as mentioned above, as much as 3%--will undoubtedly put a large dent in any equity you've built in your home and eat away at your profit (which you had probably been planning to use to put towards another house or to pay off debt).
So this begs the question: why in the world would you pay thousands of dollars of your hard-earned equity to a Long Island listing agent who posts your property info on the local MLS-and does little else to get your house sold?
I'm sure you'll agree-it makes about as much sense as selling snow to an Eskimo. But despite that fact, home sellers continue to throw away thousands of dollars to listing agents every day.
Fortunately, since you're reading this now, you don't have to be one of them.
Thanks to a revolutionary new service that's taking the real estate industry by storm, smart homeowners like you are realizing, one by one, that they never again need to pay listing brokers commission to get their property listed in the MLS.
How is this possible? Read on to learn more.
Discover a Fast, Easy, Safe and Affordable Way to Sell Your House Using the Long Island MLS
We'd like to introduce you to FlatFeeLongIsland - Long Island's most reliable flat-fee MLS listing firm. Our experience in listing houses, condominiums, and townhomes on the Multiple Listing Service using the flat-fee method has helped property owners save an amazing amount of money and preserve their hard-won home equity.
But before we tell you how a flat-fee listing works, we'd like to give you a bit of background on the MLS. That way you can understand just how effective listing your home with this service can be.
What exactly is the Multiple Listing Service (MLS)?
The Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is a computerized network of thousands of real estate firms nationwide. Within this network, real estate agents share detailed property and sale information as a means of working together to serve those buying or selling their homes.
The MLS is used as a primary marketing tool by such well-known brokers such as RE/MAX®, Century21®, Coldwell Banker® and others. Few real estate professionals will argue with the fact that this service is absolutely critical to successfully selling a home. In fact, it's estimated that 85% of all homes sold nationally are listed on the MLS.
In simple terms, when you list your home, condo, townhouse or land in the Long Island MLS, you're letting everyone know that your home is up for sale. As is the case anytime you're selling something, the more people that know about your home, the better chance you have of finding multiple potential buyers. And the more interested buyers you have, the more money you'll get for the sale.
And here's more good news:
This powerful home-selling tool is no longer reserved exclusively for licensed real estate brokers. Now you, too, can enjoy the benefits of maximum local and national exposure for your property-without sacrificing your home's valuable equity in the process. The secret is the flat-fee MLS listing service offered right here on this website.
How does a flat-fee MLS listing work?
With a flat-fee MLS listing, you can have a state-licensed real estate agent list your home, condo, townhouse or land on the Long Island Multiple Listing Service for one reasonable flat fee, starting as low as $277. The agent who lists your property in the MLS does not receive a 3% commission as has traditionally been the case.
Instead, you pay a commission of 2 to 3% only to the broker who brings you a buyer for your home, and only upon successful sale and due at close of escrow. By not having to pay commission to a listing agent, you save as much as half in typical commission fees - a savings amounting to thousands of dollars!
Be assured, there are no "smoke and mirrors" with a flat-fee MLS listing. What you see is what you get. Your property gets listed on the very same MLS that's used by professional real estate agents all across Long Island and America.
FlatFeeLongIsland uses MLS listing agents with reputable, well-know real estate agencies, including Century 21® Prudential® ERA® RE/MAX® Coldwell Banker®, and others. MLS listings are also provided by many smaller and independent brokers across the nation as well.
Who is a flat-fee MLS listing for?
A flat-fee MLS listing is ideal for any home seller who wants the marketing power of the MLS system-but doesn't want to pay hefty real estate commissions that shrink their valuable equity.
I heard a flat-fee MLS listing doesn't work as well as using traditional agent services.
And you'll probably hear it more than once. Most real estate agents don't want you to know about the flat-fee MLS listing service, simply because it cuts them out of the equation. They'll most likely tell you that a real estate agent can do more for you than the MLS.
But sadly, the truth is that most listing agents will simply put your home in the MLS … and wait. They know that with the incredible exposure your home receives from the MLS, hungry buyers will eventually start rolling in. Then they'll be able to cash in on your sale-even though in reality they did nothing to earn their commission. Personally, we'd rather see you keep your home's equity in your pocket, where it belongs!
What if I want to offer my property as FSBO ("For Sale By Owner")?
One of the great things about our flat-fee MLS listing service is that you can retain your right to offer a "For Sale By Owner" while still being listed on the Long Island MLS. That means if you find a buyer who is not working with an agent, you may sell to that buyer and not pay any commission at all!
