Thinking of Flat Fee Listing--MLS Coverage Area Seems Small
I'm a for-sale-by-owner but I offer realtors a commission if they bring me a buyer. I'm getting a lot of action on my house but a lot of lookers tell me they'd love to have it but they're not ready for one reason or another. I just lost a buyer who I was in contract with and now I'm going to lose the house I was trying to buy if I don't find another able buyer soon. I'm thinking of doing a flat fee MLS listing so realtors who have able buyers can find me. But the coverage area of my local MLS seems tiny. It might not be any better than just sending all the realtors a letter letting them know they're welcome. For example, this company that sells the flat fee MLS listings tells you to pick your area. We are on the border of two counties. When we choose one of them, within walking distance of our house, our town doesn't even come up. Anyone have any experience with this?
