Flat Fee MLS Realty is not your traditional real estate brokerage. Our brokerage lists your property on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and other popular real estate websites such as Realtor.com, Zillow, Trulia, and Homes.com for a low flat fee, so you’ll avoid paying an expensive commission to an agent. Our service allows you to maintain control of the entire home selling process.
A real estate agent has the ability to list a home for sale in the MLS and Realtor.com for maximum exposure, but property owners who list their homes For Sale By Owner (FSBO) are unable to get the same exposure… until now. With Flat Fee MLS Realty, we are able to give you that great exposure to get your home sold quickly and for top dollar for one low flat fee.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the details of the expedited 24 hour listing policy?
Flat Fee MLS Realty will return the listing to you for review within 24 hours of receiving the completed listing forms. This time does not include holidays. If there is any additional information needed to verify property ownership or complete missing required fields of the MLS, the 24 hour listing time will start from the time the missing information is provided to our company. Listing synopsis will be returned to the customer for review and approval prior to the listing being made active on MLS sites.
Do I have to pay a commission to an agent that brings a buyer?
Yes. A buyer’s agent commission is an amount you are willing to pay a real estate agent that brings you a willing and able buyer. On MLS, a buyer’s agent is made aware of what a seller is willing to pay. The amount should be competitive, typically between 2% and 3% of the selling price.
What if I find my own buyer without an agent? Would I still pay a commission?
No. Our service is strictly a flat fee service. If you find the buyer, you pocket that commission as well.
Can I cancel my listing at any time?
Yes. If you change your mind before your property is ready to be listed on MLS (usually within 48-72 hours from the date our office has all of the necessary information), then you will receive a full refund. Once the property listing has gone “Active” on MLS and a property number has been issued, there are no additional fees to cancel or remove your listing at any time.
* This is not our fee. This is the fee paid to the Realtor that brings you the buyer. This Realtor is commonly known as the selling agent/office. The MLS requires a commission to be offered. It can be a flat fee or a percentage. Our office recommends offering 2.5% (or at least a minimum of 2%). The higher the percentage, the more incentive a selling agent has to show your property.

I spoke with a kind and very professional woman on the phone named Cat and she was very informative and helpful. She answered all my questions with patience and in a happy tone that made me feel comfortable asking more questions. I just signed up for the $79 package and everything is working out smoothly. I highly recommend this company to use if you are trying to sell your home by yourself without an agent.
Just closed on my house for sale yesterday. Could not have been easier. 2 months ago, I went on line with Flat Fee Realty... they charged a very small fee, got me on the MLS right away, the calls all came directly to me, the sign went up right away, I received a higher than asking price offer..within 2 days and have now closed on it. They received under $100 up front and $295 from the buyers agent commission when it sold... saved myself $6,000 from what would normally be charged and they were awesome to work with!
We are so pleased with Flat Fee MLS Realty and the entire process and the staff. From start to finish, we always had a real person to speak with and they were always professional, courteous and helpful.
For a small flat fee, we got gorgeous photos, a MLS listing and plenty of support! If you are willing to do a little leg work (such as hosting your own open houses---which is actually kinda fun---you will save at least 2.5% on the sale of your home. We were under contract in 44 days despite being the slow season in a cool market! We saved close to $20,000, too! Steve is great and I am confident that we will always use Flat Fee MLS after learning the ropes from his excellent sales model!
From the listing to closing the transaction went smooth. The staff was extremely helpful, courteous and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend their services if you are selling your home.
Flat Fee MLS did an Excellent job of helping me to sell my home. The fee structure was upfront, and there were no surprises at closing. Everyone I dealt with was very knowledgeable, professional, and helpful. They guided me throughout the process, and went beyond my expectations. I would highly recommend them.
This was great, easy and affordable. We listed our house on the MLS through Flat Fee MLS Realty. The house was ready, but we needed to get the word out on websites and into buyers searches. With Stephen and Mary Jo, that process was simple and we were able to benefit by only paying buyers agent fee of 2%. We walked away with cash in our pocket! :) Thanks Stephen and Mary Jo!
They were wonderful to work with. Very responsive and courteous.
Provided the services promised on website in a timely manner. Very friendly people too!
Prompt follow up and service. Definitely recommend.
Great service. Highly recommend!
Professionalism, Responsiveness, Great Value!
After reviewing online comments, we've decided to work with Flat Fee MLS Realty to sell our townhouse. The team worked dazzlingly fast. Selling a property was like charting a new territory for us, so we had some questions along the way. Each time we sent an email with a question, the Flat Fee MLS Realty team called us back within 5 minutes and simply put us at ease.
Flat Fee MLS Realty was perfect for me and my wife. They explained the process of listing and selling our property very clearly and always listened to us and answered our questions candidly. They did a great job of setting expectations and continually made us feel comfortable the entire time our home was on the market. Probably the most reassuring thing that Flat Fee did was to contact us regularly with an update as to how everything was going, and what our next steps would be.
