Illinois Flat Fee MLS Listing for $249
Metro Realty, Inc. allows a Seller to sell a property "for sale by owner" and have
it listed on the Chicago area Multiple Listing Service or the “MLS” which is
used by approximately 40,000 real estate professionals.
The MLS (formerly known as the Multiple Listing Service of
Northern Illinois or MLSNI) now known as the Midwest Real Estate Data or MRED
LLC is the EXACT same MLS that a property would be listed on for sale
with a traditional broker. Metro Realty, Inc. is a discount broker that
charges a one-time rate and offers fewer services than a traditional broker. Instead of
paying a percentage of the selling price, a Seller pays a flat rate of $249 up
front at the time of listing. The primary reason for using our Flat Fee
Program is to gain access to the MLS for a property listing. Since a Seller
cannot get a property on the MLS without a listing broker, we offer the option to do so using our Flat Fee Program.
For a one-time fee of
$249, using our Illinois Flat Fee MLS Program, the Seller can cut the total commission paid
at closing in half! Instead of paying the traditional 5-6% commission for a
transaction, the Seller ONLY pays the buyers agent’s portion of the commission
at closing (typically 2-3%) if the buyer is represented by a buyer’s agent. The
seller also reserves the right to also advertise the property “for sale by owner” or FSBO.
If a buyer is found using those advertising efforts (and not represented by a buyer’s agent),
then NO commission is paid at closing.
Why doesn't everyone sell their
property using Flat Fee MLS?
The answer is simple.
Because most people do not know this money saving option even exists. Or, they
incorrectly assume that selling a property without paying a “traditional”
listing agent commission is more complicated than it really is. Some people
believe that this service is too good to be true or are misled by
the pay 6% commission Realtors. We encourage you to give us a
try. If you are not completely satisfied with our services, you can cancel the
Listing Agreement at any time without incurring any cancellation fees.
Never pay 5% or 6% again.
Keep your equity!

A listing on the MLS, allows the Seller to boost their “for sale by
owner” marketing plan for around the same price of an ad in the newspaper. Using this method the seller is able
to market their property to approx 40,000 Realtors. The property will also get tons of
exposure on many other affiliate websites like Realtor.com - the most commonly used public Multiple Listing Service
search engine. Realtor.com will expose a property listing to thousands of potential buyers. Nowadays almost
all buyers start their search online so having your listing on Realtor.com along with all of the other websites, is very important.
The best way to list a property on the MLS, along with Realtor.com is to use an Illinois discount broker like Metro
Realty, Inc. This program is great for IL FSBO sellers who want more exposure for their property, but don't
want to pay a traditional brokers commission. If you are selling a property in Chicago or the surrounding areas
then this program is for you.
