Why list on the MLS?
Figures vary, but approximately 80-94% of all properties are sold through an MLS listing. Research has shown that properties listed on the MLS sell faster and for a higher price than properties sold "For Sale by Owner".

Who sets the commission?
You, the seller, sets the commission. GO Flat Fee Realty offers the commission to the Buyer's Broker through the MLS. The commission we offer to the buyers broker is your decision.
How do brokers know that I am offering a commission?
The commission offered is posted to the MLS. All brokers know what you are offering by looking at your MLS listing.
Can I use my "For Sale by Owner Sign"?
Sorry but no, you risk confusing real estate agents. When an agent sees a "For Sale by Owner" sign they start to wonder if your home is really on the MLS and whether they will get paid. For Sale By Owners, have lost showings from using a "for sale by owner" sign. We provide you with our Yard Sign for no charge, Our Yard sign is designed to attract attention and includes the REALTOR® and MLS logos.
How will buyers contact me?
In the MLS, under showing instructions, we can direct all REALTORS® to call your phone number or ours to set appointments to show your property. However, the MLS will not give seller or showing information to any other website. On Realtor.com, and others it will prominently display whatever brokerage company that you list with. At your request we redirect any and all calls about your property to you the owner/seller. This gives you the best opportunity to sell your own property to buyers and pay 0% commission.
What is the 2004 law regarding offers?
As of 2004, the listing broker must accept and present all offers that come in for their client's property. We comply with that law.
Can I cancel my listing at any time?
Yes. You can cancel at any time. There are no cancellation fees.
How soon can I get listed?
We post the listing to the MLS the same day we receive it from you. We guarantee it will be up within one business day.
If I sell to a buyer that is not associated with an agent, do I still have to pay a commission?
No. As long as the buyer has not used a licensed agent to find your property, there will be no commission.
