Selling a home in South Florida no longer requires going the traditional route with getting a sales agent or brokerage. As 95% of buyers search online to find their next home, more and more sellers are using MLS listing services to market their homes online direct to buyers.
Beycome allows you to list your home and like a traditional agent, you arrange your own showings and undertake your own negotiations. They have different service packages (and work with renters as well as buyers/sellers). They charge varying one-time flat fees, as sellers decide on just how many services they want. Users of their products also have to pay a fee at closing ($999 for buyers/sellers and $299 for renters).
HomeLister allows you to list your home on the MLS for up to 6 months, then you have to decide whether you want to renew. They also have a range of packages up to their Platinum fee-based package. They say they offer a free service which allows for local MLS listings and listings on common real estate sites such as Zillow and Trulia but you have to pay a flat fee upon closing. To get additional services, such as professional photography, you’ll also have to pay a fee. If you should cancel your listing with the company yet later sell the home within 6 months, you are charged a closing fee. The minimum you would pay to them would be $499, and this can go as high as $2599.
Homekeys is currently only available for sellers in three South Florida counties: Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach. They don’t offer package deals with specific services. Instead, they have one flat fee for 12 months and charge another fee at the closing. They also charge a fee if you change your listing more than 5 times.
At FlatFee.com, they allow sellers throughout Florida to list their homes. You can list on the MLS or on Realtor.com for 6 months at a flat rate. Unlike the other flat fee MLS listing sites that allow for 24 photos to unlimited photos to be included in your listing, FlatFee.com only allows for 6 photos unless you upgrade to a higher listing fee package.
