The Multiple Listing Service, or typically known as MLS, is an online search engine or tool for available homes for sale operated by REALTORS®, with over 700 to 800 regional MLS databases. Likewise, your local listed property will be posted to several real estate platforms and sites like Zillow, Redfin, Trulia, and Realtor.com. Note that you can only access the local MLS through the help of state-licensed real estate brokers or agents who have paid a sum of money to be a member of the regional or local MLS. For Sale By Owner (FSBO) home sellers are choosing Flat Fee MLS service to save a hefty amount of money while still letting your property gets listed in the online databases. A Flat Fee MLS service offers promising reduced fee with additional services some entry companies can provide. These Flat Fee MLS packages have basic to premium real estate services offered such as listing photos, yard signs, closing contracts, and more.
