Q. What is the benefit of putting my property on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS)?
A. There is one very significant benefit to having your home listed on the MLS EXPOSURE to the local pool of real estate agents! The fact that you have your home for sale in the MLS will now be known by the hundreds, if not thousands, of real estate brokers and Buyer's Agents in your market who are helping buyers find homes.
Q. How long will my home be listed on the MLS?
A. Six (6) months.
Q. What is the difference between a Sellers Agent and a Buyers Agent?
A. A Seller's Agent lists the property, represents the seller and is legally obligated to put the seller's interests above all others. A Buyer's Agent represents the purchaser in the transaction and puts the buyer's interests above all others.
Q. What does it mean to "co-op"?
A. Co-op (cooperative payment) means that you would be willing to pay a Buyer's Agent a fee for bringing a buyer to you. Typically, a Buyer's Agent is paid 2.5% - 3.0% of the sales price. It is necessary to list the commission amount you are willing to pay on the MLS when you list your home with the real estate agent.
Q. If I do not want to "co-op" with a Real Estate Agent, is the MLS still a good idea for me?
A. No. A Buyer's Agent expects compensation. Without offering it, an agent will have no reason to bring a buyer to your home.
Q. Do I have to pay an agent if I put my home on the local MLS but find the buyer myself?
A. NO! In this scenario, you would have only spent $399 ** to get on the MLS using Why6Percent.
Q. So what are my cost savings with putting my home on the MLS as opposed to going with a full- service Real Estate Agent?
A. Let's go through both scenarios with the assumption that you are selling your home for $150,000. One scenario uses a regular full-service Seller's Agent with a 7% commission. The other scenario uses Why6Percent's MLS service.
