Frequently Asked Questions

  • Which Iowa MLS does Houzeo cover?
    • We cover all major Iowa MLS’ including Des Moines AAR-IA, IOWA AOR-IA, Cedar Rapids Area AOR-IA, Iowa Great Lakes Board of Realtors-IA, Waterloo-Cedar Falls BOR-IA, Northeast Iowa Regional MLS-IA, Northwest Iowa MLS-IA, Great Lakes Association MLS-IA, South West MLS-IA, Des Moines Area Association of Realtor MLS-IA, North East MLS-IA, Cedar Rapids Area AOR MLS -IA, RMLS Alliance-IA, West Central Iwoa Regional MLS-IA, MyState MLS-IA, Poweshiek County MLS-IA

  • What is a Iowa Multiple Listing Service (MLS)?
    • An Iowa MLS is a database usually accessible only to real estate agents, where agents list and market properties to other agents. They can also offer a commission to other agents. In the US over 80% of properties sell with buyer agents (most of the rest are property transfers to relatives, friends, etc.). So it's extremely important you get your Iowa home on the Iowa MLS. Houzeo allows you to do that with our Iowa Flat Fee MLS service for For Sale By Owners (FSBOs).

  • Should I offer the buyer's agent a commission in Iowa?
    • You can choose not to, but we recommend that you do. A majority of buyers are still represented by an agent, so it's recommended that you offer the buyer's agent commission to incentivize agents to bring you buyers and help sell your home faster. Remember: with Houzeo, you've saved the seller's agent commission, which would normally be between 2% to 3% in Iowa.

  • Do I need to review my Iowa MLS listing?
    • Yes. Within 24 hours of when your Listing Agent emails you a copy of your MLS listing, you are required to review it and inform your agent if you see anything that might not be accurate. MLS penalizes members for any inaccurate information and you're responsible to pay this fine if incurred.

  • How will I know when my Iowa property listing goes public?
    • Two to 48 business hours after you've submitted your Iowa property listing on Houzeo.com and answered any additional questions your Listing Agent might have, your listing will go live on the MLS and various portals like Zillow, Trulia, and Realtor.com. You can check it out on Realtor.com. Note that your agent is responsible only for getting your property on the Iowa MLS. Sometimes the syndication to 3rd party websites like Zillow, Trulia, etc. may not work as intended and you might need to contact them directly.

  • How long does it take to get my listing on the Iowa MLS?
    • In most cases, your listing will appear the same day or on the next business day. This is after you have submitted your listing on houzeo.com and answered any follow-up questions the Listing Agent might have. In some cases, however, it can take upto 2 business days for your property to be listed on the Iowa MLS.

  • Will my Iowa property listing appear on Zillow, Redfin, Trulia, etc.?
    • Yes. All our plans include syndication to major websites, including Zillow, Redfin, Realtor.com, Trulia, Re/Max, and many more. Note that the agent is responsible for the MLS listing only, and in rare cases, there can be issues with syndication to 3rd party sites like Zillow, Trulia, etc. In these cases, you can reach out to these sites directly to get things corrected.

  • How will buyers and buyer agents contact me about my Iowa property listing?
    • Your Iowa Listing Agent will also insert your contact info in the private remarks section of the MLS listing. Buyer's agents see these remarks and will contact you directly via phone or email. All offers come directly to you. Finally, we highly recommend ShowingTime - service agents use broadly. Your Listing Agent has opened it up for you to use - Accept showing appointments on the app!

  • How does Houzeo help me file Federal and Iowa State disclosures?
    • Figuring out what disclosures apply to your transaction can be stressful. Manually filling them out, scanning, and then emailing them doesn't help either. Houzeo has put in immense amounts of effort into digitizing various Federal and Iowa State disclosures to help you meet these requirements more efficiently. You only see disclosures that apply to your transaction, and Houzeo makes it much easier for you to fill them out and sign them electronically.

  • How do I get help for my Iowa MLS listing if I need it?
    • For any Iowa MLS listing related questions, you can reach out directly to your Listing Agent. Houzeo gives you their contact info when you select one. For anything else, see that orange help button at the bottom left? Use it to chat, email, or call our customer service team at any time! You can also schedule a complimentary consultation with us to assess if Houzeo is the right solution for you.

  • How do I get started with Houzeo to list my Iowa home?
    • Login using your email, or your Facebook or Google accounts, and click "Sell a Property" on your User Dashboard. Enter your property address, select a listing plan, and Houzeo's IntelliList Listing Management System will make listing your home easy by autofilling as much info about your home as is available to us! Upload photos, select a price, and sign your MLS contracts – and your home will be on your local MLS ASAP! It's all online!

General Iowa MLS information

About Flat Fee MLS in Iowa

Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is a real estate database where all the properties available for purchase are listed. There are more than 700 MLSs in the United States and many local Iowa MLSs are a part of that collection. Only licensed real estate agents have access to this database. These real estate agents pay a membership fee to Realtor.com, which acts as a custodian of all these 700 MLSs and the properties listed on them.

Real estate listings should be posted on the local MLS i.e., MLS Iowa and the only way to get your home listed on the MLS Iowa is through a licensed broker who is a member of MLS Iowa. However, a listing agent will cost you 2%-3% of your home sale price and a Flat Fee Realtor will do it for a flat fee instead of a percentage of your home sale price.

Houzeo is one of the best Flat Fee MLS companies in Iowa as we provide, affordable packages, excellent service, 24×7 customer support, easy-to-use seller dashboard, state-of-the-art technology, 100% automation, and digital paperwork.

Why List on MLS Iowa with a Flat Fee MLS Listing Service?

1. According to the National Association of Realtors’ Data, 88% of buyers buy through an agent. Many real estate agents who work for a flat fee set up notification emails for their buyers when new homes are posted on MLS Iowa, a Flat Fee MLS Listing Service puts you on that list.

2. Most local MLSs, including MLS Iowa, syndicate your listing to top real estate websites like Zillow, Trulia, Redfin, and Realtor.com. This gives you additional exposure and increases your chances of selling your home quickly.

3. Finally, the biggest benefit of a Flat Fee MLS Listing Service is you save up to 6% on agent commissions. With a Flat Fee package, you eliminate the listing agent and thus you save 3% on listing agent commissions right away. Also, if you find a buyer who is not represented by an agent, you save another 3% on the buyer agent’s commission.

What is For Sale by Owner (FSBO) in Iowa?

For Sale by Owner (FSBO), also pronounced as “fizbo” in real estate agents’ jargon, is a home selling process where a seller doesn’t hire an agent to sell their home and sell it by themselves.

These sellers put a sign “FOR SALE BY OWNER” in their yard to show the buyers that their home is on sale. However, relying on a yard sign is not a good option and eventually would lead you to go with a listing agent. This will not only cost you time but also money.

This is where a Flat Fee MLS Iowa Listing Service can be a life savior for you. Houzeo can list your home on the MLS Iowa for a flat fee and give all the exposure needed to sell your home quickly and to the right buyer.
