How Flat Fee Brokerage Works - Omaha NE
Our flat fee program is unique in that it is structured to work. Most programs are designed to get you on the Multiple Listing Service and that is it. We built our program to not only get you on the Multiple Listing Service, but get your house shown and sold. In addition to working, we made it easy for you with detailed instructions, check lists and easy to complete documents.
How our Flat Fee Program works:
- We list the house on the MLS, provide guidance when needed.
- Same MLS as 6% - 8% agents use but for a lot less money.
- Your listing looks the same as the other listings.
- Once on the MLS you take over the selling functions (Showcase Plan)
- With the Full Service plan we do it all, same service others pay 6% - 8% for.
- Sell BY OWNER and pay no buyer agent commission.
- Buyer agents bring buyers and you offer to pay them.
- Buyer agent commission rates run 2.4% - 3.0% (3% on Showcase listings and 2.4% on Full Service listings).
- The commission is stated on the MLS, so agents know they are being fully compensated for selling your house.
The Listing Process
- Once you have decided to list, you can download the kit online.
- You will be directed to your resource page with a link to the Listing Kit and other helpful resources.
- Make sure you carefully read and follow the instructions and complete all forms.
- Once you fill out the forms, email the documents and photos to us.
- Once we receive the documents and photos in good form, we can have you listed within 1-2 business days.
- You should receive the sign and lock box* within 2 business days after we receive the forms.
- Once listed, we will email a link to the listing on the MLS for you to review.

We are here to make this an easy process.
Set Agent Appointments Using a Showing Service
- We provide this convenient service at no charge.
- Showings are professionally scheduled by Centralized Showing Service (CSS).
- CSS is the industry standard and used by agents to set appointments to show properties.
- It is easy and convenient for buyers agents.
- Agents are comfortable with the process.
- Helps you minimize contact with agents (very important).
CSS verifies that an agent setting an appointment is an agent and not just a random person. The showing service is only for agents and not for individuals. Individuals will call you directly.
After each showing, CSS will automatically e-mail the showing agent and the agent can post feedback on your property. We will email you the feedback we receive. Not all agents provide feedback even though we send a request 3 times.
