|The FSBO MLS Listing Program
Sellers who prefer traditional, full service can also save big. If you
choose traditional, full service, Jim Roth Realty will aggressively market your
home by placing it on the MLS and over 200 broker sites and over a
dozen commercial sites.
Like all traditional full sevice brokers we will take calls from buyers and show
your home. If Jim Roth Realty procures the buyer, you only owe a 3%
Commission at closing. If another brokerage firm procures buyer, you only
owe a 4.5% Commission at closing.
Just in case you weren't sure FSBO means For Sale By Owner and MLS
stands for Multiple Listing Service as in The Cincinnati Multiple Listing Service
or CincyMLS. Virtually every home listed by a Realtor in Butler, Hamilton and
Warren Counties in Ohio is posted on the CincyMLS which in turn posts it on
all the Realtor sites plus many other internet sites. Every Realtor looking for
homes for buyers searches the MLS. Almost every buyer searching for a
home on the internet, directly or indirectly searches the MLS because of all
the websites the MLS feeds.
The FSBO MLS Listing Program puts your home on the CincyMLS plus
200+ broker sites for $375 upfront marketing fee. You continue all your
other marketing efforts. I provide you a For Sale Sign with your phone
number on it. Buyer calls are directed to you and you show your own
house. When you find a buyer, if you choose, I'll sit down with you and your
buyer and prepare the purchase contract and all the addenda required by
law. I'll help your buyer find a loan and work with the bank and title company
until the deal closes, keeping you informed every step of the way. At closing I'll
collect a 1.5% commission ($1000 minimum.) If you are an experienced
investor or if you have an attorney, you may want no more assistance, in
which case $375 is all you owe.
Realtors will also show your house if you offer a co-op commission. You
should offer 3% but you may offer more or less if you choose. The MLS will
indicate how much co-op you are offering to the Realtor. The amount of
co-op is also posted on the For Sale Sign in your yard. If a Realtor procures
the buyer, you only pay 3.75% commission at closing.
