$0 Upfront Flat Fee Broker Omaha NE

Flat fee broker Omaha

The flat fee broker represents a low cost option for sellers wishing to utilize the multiple listing service, better known as the MLS, and save on real estate commissions by taking on much of the work marketing the home. What is often called a "flat fee broker" is really a "fee for service broker" that charges an up front fee to let a For Sale by Owner access the multiple listing service (MLS).

It looks good on paper, but usually doesn't pan out in practice. The fee for service broker provides no services for the "fee" other than data entry on the MLS. The seller is responsible for all other facets of the listing and sale process.

 The flat fee broker has no incentive to sell the house and many times they'll rope you in with a "too good to be true" fee and leave you hanging. Unless the seller is experienced, like a retired real estate agent, it will be difficult for them to navigate through the process or provide the quality of marketing that their competition will have.

Other services, such as enhancements to the listing, signs, lock boxes, flyers, photography, call forwarding, document preparation, buyer's agent's commission, etc. are typically sold individually, even those services that are required by law! Another disadvantage to the program is the amount of commission paid to the buyer's agent is often higher than average. Many times the buyer's agent has to act in both capacities, as a selling agent and a listing agent, because under the fee for service model the seller is normally representing themselves. The higher commission helps to entice agents to show the property.
