- If we have notified you that your listing requires us to join an new MLS system, the fee paid is not refundable as soon as we have joined that new MLS system. This is highly unusual.
- After the home is listed in MLS or you have met with the agent:* The fee is not refundable. The service does not guarantee the property will sell, or guarantee a minimum number of showings per month. Seller is responsible for reviewing the accuracy of the MLS listing.
*Meeting with agents: For about 2% of home sellers, a small number of MLS areas require a quick meeting/property walk through with a brokerage representative to be listed in MLS. If your area requires a meeting with the agent, the meeting must be canceled a minimum of three hours before the scheduled meeting time. Otherwise, the fee paid is not refundable.
Errors on the listing: The seller agrees to review the entire listing for errors and notify our brokerage for correction. An error/typo on the listing is not cause for refund, please bring the error/typo to our attention for correction.
Pricing information/assistance: If the seller requests and brokerage provides pricing information, electronic signature set up, or assistance and then the seller decides not to list, any possible refund amount will be reduced by an additional $49-199 as compensation for the ordering processing and research/time spent on the service.
Complex ownership situations: Economy packages are not available for use for properties is owned by more than one entity (Trusts, LLCs, Corporations, etc). For the rare properties that have complex ownership, options, equitable rights, or multiple layers of entities in ownership, that require research, a surcharge or purchase of a more expensive package may be required for listing. Our brokerage may refuse to list any property, and is required to do so if the ownership documentation does not clearly establish that all ownership interests have approved the listing agreement.
Any list of other websites that the listing information will be posted on is subject to change and cannot be guaranteed to be up to date. These listings cannot and are not guaranteed.

The listing includes websites that generally show single family residences, any other type of listing may not be displayed.
Time of listing and listing terms
Listing terms are determined by the listing agreement the seller signs with the MLS Broker. The number of months of listing should start upon the date the listing is signed and/or accepted by the broker (not the order date). Where the website offers X months of listing, the seller is free to choose a listing expiration date earlier than X months, however, seller should realize (1) broker may not notify or remind seller when expiration occurs or is approaching; (2) seller will most likely need to pay an additional fee to extend the listing; (3) once listing agreement expires seller may not be able to extend the listing, a new listing and the applicable fee may be required. We recommend signing up for the full X months, understanding that the seller has the ability to request the listing status be changed to “cancelled” as described in the listing agreement and by the procedure required by the MLS broker, if the seller wants to change brokers or no longer sell their home. Cancellation is not available to avoid paying a buyer agent commission, avoid reporting of a sale, and/or violate MLS rules.
Listing extensions are non-refundable once entered into the MLS.

It is the sellers responsibility to make sure premium is paid at closing and policy number issued at that time.

- MLS Listing and Packages: An MLS Listing does not require payment of a listing commission in all circumstances. The “selling” commission must be paid if you receive an acceptable offer from a buyer who was procured, shown the property by, or involved with an agent. This commission will be paid even if it is not mentioned in the purchase agreement. BuySelf lists properties with seller-selected commission amounts of any amount above 2.5% (BuySelf recommends paying 2.7 to 3%), and must be determined before a listing can be entered into MLS.
