A “Flat Fee MLS Listing” refers to the practice in the real estate industry of a seller entering into a service agreement with a real estate broker who accepts a flat fee rather than a percentage of the sale price for the listing side of the transaction.
Today, through more than 800 local and regional MLS associations across the USA, brokers share information on properties they have listed and invite other brokers to cooperate in their sale in exchange for compensation.
Abbreviated as FSBO, a home offered for sale without the assistance of a real estate agent. FSBO’s receive a ton of calls from agents trying to get an MLS listing.
The cost of the listing is a fixed amount not a percentage.
