The MLS is a database where real estate agents list the homes they have for sale. The MLS provides seller agents the ability to offer compensation to buyer agents. This is important as 90% of buyers have an agent and that agent will typically only show the buyer homes where the agent can make a commission.

Yes, you must be a licensed real estate agent to list a property on the MLS. Our agent provides the ability for you to list your home on the MLS for a small fee.

On the MLS, you offer a fair commission to attract buyer agent to show your property and bring potential buyers. Here, on our website, buyers who want to do it themselves are without a buyer agent. Direct communication and negotiation will lead to a successful deal just between the seller and the buyer.

Often, buyers thought they would be able to negotiate a significant amount by directly working with the seller agent without bringing a buyer agent to the table. However, it will not happen since usually there is an agreement between seller and seller agent already in place, that all 6% commission goes to the seller agent if no buyer agent on board. The only way to get a better price is to find sellers selling by themselves and directly work with them. When seller do not have to pay for 6% commission, meaning, purchase price is lowered for buyer.

  • The actual listing input form for the MLS. You will complete it on our website.
  • Listing agreement. We will email you the agreement to sign and return.
  • Seller’s disclosure. We will email you the disclosure to fill out, sign and return. This document is required to upload to the MLS for buyer and agent’s use. If the seller’s home is part of an estate or a foreclosure, a seller’s disclosure may not be required.

Yes. If you are offering a fair commission through the MLS (typically 3%), buyer agents will certainly show your property. Buyer agents only avoid homes that are not offering a commission through the MLS. By using the MLS, you are making a contractual offer to those buyer agents and you can offer them any amount you like.

Every house is unique. For instance, which year is it built? Is it built before 1978? Is it in 50-year, 100-year or 500-year flood plan? Is it in a MUD community? It is as essential to have the right and applicable forms signed to minimize your liabilities during the transaction. We are here to identify and ensure the right forms to be filled out and completed properly.

When TREC approves and promulgates a contract it means they have approved the form and require that form to be used by licensees in all situations that it fits.TREC contract forms are intended for use primarily by licensed real estate brokers or sales agents who are trained in their correct use. Mistakes in the use of a form may result in financial loss or a contract which is unenforceable.

Just as all other real estate agents, we represent you and work as your agent by signing Exclusive right to sell/buy agreement with you. Instead of the traditional 3%, we only ask for 1%. This is to honor your trust on using our services, and also to offer help when you need it. We get paid at the closing when your transaction is complete and your previous spend on our services will be credit back to you from our agent’s 1% sales commission at the closing.

Other services such as cleaning, inspection, appraisal and etc. do not belong to agent’s work scope, and can not be credit back at closing.
