Columbus Flat Fee MLS Listing Self List in the Realtors Multiple Listing Service

Highest Rated Flat Fee MLS Listing Service in Central Ohio


I've had more than one interview where I was concerned that the reporter didn't adequately understand the topic, but this was the opposite extreme. The reporter for this article really hit the ball out of the park, in my opinion.
Angie's List just published an article entitled "Home buyers, sellers empowered by online information" and the reporter Paul Pogue did an excellent job. Granted, he has thoroughly investigated and learned about the real estate industry over the years, unlike some reporters who have to approach it brand new with a short deadline.

We are starting to see more and more listings with video tours of the property. When tours are done well, they are a great tool for increasing buyer interest in the property. The videos are still new enough that they make a listing stand out from other listings.
The best news is that in most areas posting a video is free.

While Flat Fee MLS Listings are new to most people, they have been around since the late 1990s and the industry is starting to mature. Most consumers are not aware of flat fee MLS as an option, but that awareness is growing (MLS=Multiple Listing Service). How do you decide where to get your flat fee MLS listing? This simple checklist will help you make the smart decision:

What is the MLS?
The Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is a list or database of all homes for sale in an area. The MLS is used by Realtors to list properties for sale and find properties for buyers. In most markets, the MLS is used by agents at all large, medium, and most small real estate companies.

Contrary to the repeated headlines we have read over the past two months, the real estate market isn't dead or dying. Many of our sellers who are currently listed have been pleasantly surprised at the amount of buyer and offer activity they have seen.
Granted, no one will confuse this market with 2004. But there is reason for optimism, many reasons in fact:
Buyer and purchase agreement activity is increasing in many markets.
Mortgage financing is readily available and interest rates are very attractive.

Yes, there are multiple independent websites where our customers have posted flat fee MLS reviews about our service. Call or email us, we can email you a link to these websites. These websites show customers commenting and reviewing our service in their own words. We strongly recommend that you look for independent reviews, not just testimonials posted on a company’s own website.

We recently had a flat fee mls seller send us pictures for their property. The pictures were ok, good but not great, but there was a problem. They showed the home and lot covered with snow. Now normally that is fine but it was August, and this wasn't in one of the few places in the world that have snow in August (no we don't list in the Southern Hemisphere, yet).

Consumer Reports has weighed in on real estate commissions, and the results point directly to using a flat fee listing broker, which is no surprise to me. The articles appear in their September 2008 issue. Consumer Reports is perhaps the best known and longest running consumer advocacy organization, which is described as "No brand is more widely recognized and trusted than Consumer Reports. Since 1936, [it] has delivered thorough consumer product recommendations, while maintaining a reputation for objectivity and accuracy.
