Thinking about Selling Your Home using a Virginia Flat Fee MLS Listing Company?

picture of house for saleNaturally it takes more than a sign in your yard to sell your Virginia home. But still, you've worked hard to own your own house, and you probably don't want to pay for it to be listed in a way that makes more money for agents than it does for you. Sell your home for a flat fee and keep your hard earned equity.  We put you home in the Virginia Realtor MLS and on Zillow, and thousands of websites the MLS feeds to.

Perhaps like most people you've considered an alternative to a traditional real estate broker but you wonder What is the difference between a Flat Fee MLS Listing versus a Traditional Real Estate Listing.  If you compare the Virginia Flat Fee Mulitple Listing Service to a traditional real estate service, you will see you get the best of both worlds with the Virginia Flat Fee MLS Listing Program.  You have the opportunity to sell as a For Sale By Owner Virginia and pay no commission if the buyer comes to you as a FSBO or if the buyer comes to you with a Realtor, you only pay up to a 3% commission instead of up to a 6% commission. 

You get the same services for one flat fee versus the commission!  If you list your home with a traditional Realtor, even if you find your own buyer while you are listed with that agent, you will still have to pay them a commission.  Many home sellers also wonder what their obligations are selling their home FSBO with our VA Flat Fee MLS Listing program.  How much will a home seller have to pay in Closing Costs when they sell their home?

How Does the Virginia For Sale By Owner Flat Fee MLS Listing Work?

  • You pick a package depending on the level of service you want. 
  • You set up an account on the web, fill in some basic information, fill out some required MLS docouments and upload some photos.
  • Once you have completed all, it comes to your listing agent and your home will be keyed into the For Sale By Owner site and the Local MLS. 
  • Your listing will just like any other listing in the MLS.  Realtors do not see how much you paid to list the property.
  • A professional Post Sign can be delivered and installed in your yard and picked up with certain packages.
  • You decide if you want a Realtor Lockbox on your door.
  • Your phone and email contact info will be in the agent remarks for Realtors to contact you. 
  • You control when agents and for sale by owner home buyers can see your home. 
  • You decide when and if you want to have open houses which we strongly recommend.
  • All offers are sent direct to you and your listing agent. 
  • If you sell your home to a home buyer without an agent, you do not pay any commission. 
  • If the buyer comes to you with an Realtor, then you pay the commission you agreed to in the MLS Listing Agreement. 

How Fast Can My Home For Sale Be Listed in the Realtor MLS?

Your home can be listed for a Flat Fee in the Realtor's MLS and on the For Sale By Owner website in 1 - 2 business days.  Same day service is also available if needed for a small fee.

Can Buyers and Agents Contact Me Direct?

Your contact information will be in the agent remarks for buyer agents to call you.  The MLS does not allow your contact info to be on the MLS fed websites.  If an buyer contacts us via phone, email or text, it is then forwarded direct to you so you can contact them.  You will also have a FSBO listing on our website where buyers can find your home listing and contact you direct.

Can I Offer What I Want For The Buyer Agent Commission?

Yes you can. We encourage you be competitive with others in your neighborhood, but that is up to you.

Will My Home Be On, Zillow, Redfin And All The Same Websites If I Listed With A Traditional Realtor?

Absolutely.  All homes listed in the Realtor MLS are fed to all the same websites like, Zillow,, Trulia, Redfin and thousands more. The websites set up a feed to the MLS to gather the information for their website.

Why Doesn't Everyone Sell Their Virginia Home For Sale By Owner for a Flat Fee?

This program is not for everyone. For some homesellers, it is not worth their time to save 3% - 6% in a real estate commission but for the majority of Virginia home sellers it is worth their time.  For most sellers, they want to save the commission and are willing to take a few hours to learn how the process works.  Since we do not go to your home, we can only educate our clients with our videos and FAQs. If you read the FAQ's and watch the home selling real estate videos, you will have a good understanding on how the For Sale By Owner and Flat Fee MLS VA Program works and how to get the most money for your home.  You also need to be available to answer calls, emails and texts from agents, buyers and us throughout the process.

Do I have to have a Yard Sign and can I have my own FSBO yard sign?

You cannot have a FSBO Yard Sign.  The Realtor MLS does not allow it.  This is explained in your MLS Listing Agreement.  You can only have the Realtor yard sign. You do not have to have a yard sign but we do recommend one.  You want to stand out with your competition.  A professionally installed post sign can gives buyers piece of mind when they know they are at the right home and drive by buyers will see your home.  Don't worry about the nosy neighbors.  You are moving and that nosy neighbor may have a buyer for you.

Studies have confirmed that Virginia home owners who use a traditional Realtor working for a traditional real estate agency can pay an average of $15,000 - $30,000 more in fees on a $500,000 home*. It's time for you to save that money for your next home purchase. Higher priced homes resulted in even larger seller savings. 

How Will I Know When My MLS Listing Is Live On The MLS And Other Websites?

You will receive an activation email along with a copy of your MLS Listing to proof.  You can also google your address once we let you know your home is active on the MLS and you will see how many websites have it already.  Some website take longer to feed than others.
