Why list with Porter Key Realty

Because with our Flat Fee MLS Listing your home will get the same online exposure on websites that display MLS listings, including Realtor.com, national websites like Re/Max, Keller Williams, Coldwell Banker, Century 21, and hundreds of local broker websites.

You can offer a typical competitive commission to buyer agents (we recommend a minimum of 2.5%), or pay absolutely no commission if you find your own buyer not represented by an agent! With our Flat Fee Listing you won’t pay 6% or even 5%, and you’ll get the same exposure on the same MLS that all agents, brokers, and Realtors use, for a simple low flat fee!

With our full service program, you would pay about 3% commission of your home’s sale price to the listing broker, and then another 3% commission to the buyer’s broker. When you list with us, using our flat fee listing, you cut out the “listing” broker commission side and only pay the buyer’s broker commission, which will save you thousands of dollars – THAT’S MORE OF YOUR EQUITY IN YOUR OWN POCKET.

If the buyer is represented by a broker, you pay the commission (you decide when you list how much you want to offer) at the closing. If the buyer is not represented, then you pay nothing more! Remember – Throughout the whole process, you always retain the right to sell your home “For Sale By Owner” and pay NO commission.

Your Flat Fee Listing will be added to the local MLS and look the same as all other listings, with the exception of the showing instructions, which will have your contact phone for agents to call you.
