Indiana South Bend Saint Josephs County Flat Fee MLS Listing

Choose the package that is right for you.
Important Electronic Lockbox Notice: The South Bend MLS requires that if a lockbox is used, it must be an electronic lockbox. After you purchase this package, electronic lockboxes are available for rental.
IMPORTANT: Indiana requires a brokerage rep to attend closing, which costs $350 to be paid at closing by the seller. If the buyer is not involved with an agent in any way, the attendance/fee is not required.

How it works: In a traditional real estate transaction, you would pay around 6% at closing. Out of this 6%, half, or 3% usually goes to the listing agent, and 3% goes to the buyer's agent. With a flat fee listing, you eliminate the 3% listing commission and replace it with the flat fee listing price for your package above. You get all the same exposure and the same MLS listing that you normally would for a full 6%.
If a buyer's agent is involved in bringing a buyer to you, you still pay a commission to that agent as you would in a traditional real estate transaction -- this is what motivates them to show your home. However, through the whole process, you retain the right to sell your home yourself to save even more money. In fact, our typical seller saves $8,072!
