Listing your home on the MLS, Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com® and hundreds
more sites is a “must” for any serious seller, and our simple process will save
you time and money. Give your property maximum exposure to local buyers while
saving thousands in commissions!
What Is the MLS?
The Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is a cooperative database which allows
professional Realtors® to share information about real estate for sale. It’s
the most powerful marketing tool for a homeowner to sell their home. It’s only
available to Realtors® and not to the public. In the past, the only way to get
your home on this powerful list was to hire a full commission agent because
only licensed real estate agents can list property for sale in the MLS, but the
Realtors® at Small Fee Realty are opening up this tool to Home Sellers for a
Small Fee instead of a Huge Commission.
Why do I Need to be listed in the MLS?
Over 85% of homes are sold through the MLS in Arkansas and 4 out of 5
buyers use the MLS to find a home. Selling a home on the MLS exposes your home
to thousands of online views.
What is the Role of the Listing Agent?
Only licensed real estate agents can place homes in the MLS. Our
Realtors® will prepare the paperwork and place your home in the MLS and
give you full representation throughout the process of selling your home.
Who Handles the Paperwork?
All the necessary listing forms will be provided by your Realtor®. All of the paperwork necessary to
create a legally binding sales contract, property disclosures and any other
addendums will be provided by and reviewed by your
Realtor® throughout the selling process.
How Many People Will See My Listing?
Just like any agent-sponsored listing, an MLS listing will receive
free national exposure on over 900 plus real estate websites. For
example Realtor.com® website will have a description of your property with
color photos. These website are open to the public and are the
most heavily trafficked real estate websites on the internet. Only properties
listed in the MLS can appear on Realtor.com. In addition, MLS listings are
featured on Zillow, Trulia, Yahoo!®, and MSN® and over 900 other real estate
websites that attract millions of potential buyers. The best part is that your
listing will now be available on local Real Estate Brokerage sites where most
of our local buyers are already searching for homes.
