Most sellers are unaware of the benefits of a Flat Fee Listing. Once they learn, they never look back. There is a cost to it and sellers fall into four categories:

  1. Those that have never heard of Flat Fee Listings.
  2. Those without time  to make it work.
  3. Those looking to sell by owner (FSBO) and don’t want to pay a buyer’s agent. 
  4. Those aware and never look back.
