A listing on the MLS, allows the Seller to boost their “for sale by owner” marketing plan for around the same price of a newspaper ad. Using this method, the seller is able to market their property to approximately 40,000 real estate professionals.
The property will also get tons of exposure on many other MLS syndicated websites like Realtor.com, Trulia and Zillow and many more! These sites will expose a property listing to thousands of potential buyers. Nowadays almost all buyers start their search online so having your listing on all of these websites is very important.
This program is great for FSBO sellers who want more exposure for their property, but don't want to pay a traditional brokers commission.
