There is NO catch. Do your own comparison. But remember, the question is not why do we charge so little…The Real question is, why do THEY charge so much?
The Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is an extensive database of information on real estate properties listed by real estate brokers and their agents. The MLS is only available exclusively to the members of the MLS, providing a large advantage to buyer and sellers who utilize the services of REALTORS. To understand how the process works, when a client contacts an agent regarding a home purchase, the agent will search the MLS for properties meeting their criteria. If a REALTOR finds a buyer for your house, you will only pay a 3% commission of the sales price and never a listing commission. (Or whatever commission you are offering as stated in the MLS
Less than 5% of listing agents actually sell the homes they list. Why? They simply use the power of the MLS by listing the properties for thousands of agents to bring their buyers respective buyers. 85% of home buyers use a REALTOR to help them locate a property. Why is this important? REALTORS use to the MLS to search properties for their clients. The flat fee listing method lists your property on the same MLS as the local REALTORS. You can put the power of the MLS to work for you and save 3% commission.

Listing in the Realtor’s MLS is crucial if you are serious about selling. 85% of home buyers use the services of a real estate agent, and real estate agents use the MLS to search for houses on the market.
First, no Realtor would ever know that your listing is different from any other listing. Second, assuming they could somehow tell the difference, it really wouldn’t matter anyway. All that buyers’ agents care about is getting their commission, and they WILL show your house regardless of what kind of listing it is. If they don’t show it, they risk that the buyer will find it themselves, and the agent would end up with nothing. The only agents complaining and making up blackballing stories are the ones who can’t get 6% listings so easily any more, and they don’t normally work with buyers anyway.

Real Estate commissions cannot be fixed by law, period. You may offer whatever you want – dollar or percentage wise. closer you come to the customary 2 1/2% to 3%, the better chance you will have of making a buyers agent’s list of properties they show their clients when they have to make the choice about which to show.

It was so easy to list sell my property with your service. I love the fact the sign lockbox was included and I did not have to go out and try to buy a sign lockbox. Your service made it so easy. Everything I needed to sell my house was included in your low priceJulie – College Station
Just wanted to thank you for providing such a great service. My realtor was going to list my house for a fee of $12,000. Then I searched the web for 2 entire days for the best deal around. Your price was the lowest for the same service that my 6% realtor would have provided. I got the same results for and saved over $5,000. You were there each time I called with a question, and provided me with answers. You service was outstanding, and I’ll recommend you to anyone who’s going to list their property.
Thank You Again,
Just a note to thank you for all your help during the sale of our condo. I appreciate your patience with all my questions. You made what seemed like a very difficult process, quite simple. In fact the whole process, from start to finish took only a month. It was great to save on the commission fee and yet have the full services that go with having a real estate agent. Working with you was great. I will gladly recommend you to anyone selling a home.
Thanks again for all your help.
I was hesitant about signing up with a Discount Real Estate service. They showed me other listings they had and I decided to give it a shot. Our house sold in 35 days and we saved $7500. I will never use a “full price” Realtor again!Shannon B – The Woodlands
I thought I would have to do most of the legwork myself to get this property sold when signing up with The Listing Firm but I was wrong. I found the buyer (buyer had no Realtor). They prepared the contract and explained everything to me and the buyer and after closing, I saved $14,000 in commissions! I have referred 4 friends to them already.Edward D – Sienna
Their service is exactly what they say it is. Full Service Realty for a FRACTION of the price. Nobody should give away their equity.Dallas, TX
We have sold 2 houses in the past and paid 6% both times. Never again! The Listing Firm put my house on the market with better photos and descriptions than either of my previous two Realtors. At closing, I saved $9,000! Needless to say, I gave Mr. Ronding a closing bonus and will refer his service to all my friends and family. This service is great!– D Barton – Katy
