General California MLS information

About Flat Fee MLS in California

Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is a real estate database where all the properties available for purchase are listed. There are more than 700 MLSs in the United States and many local California MLSs are a part of that collection. Only licensed real estate agents have access to this database. These real estate agents pay a membership fee to Realtor.com, which acts as a custodian of all these 700 MLSs and the properties listed on them.
This means that only a licensed real estate broker or agent, who is a member of MLS in California, can list your house on the California MLS. However, this listing agent will cost you 2%-3% of your home sale price and Flat Fee Realtors will do it for a flat fee instead of a percentage of your home sale price. Instead of choosing flat rate realtors for a flat rate MLS listing, you could go with a Flat Fee MLS listing service.

Houzeo is one of the best Flat Fee MLS listing services in California providing –

Why List on MLS California with a Flat Fee MLS Listing Service?

You should opt for listing on the MLS for a flat fee because –

88% of the buyer agents search the MLS to look for properties for their clients. A flat fee MLS listing in California will give your listing maximum exposure to these buyer agents and their buyers.

Most local MLSs, including MLS California, syndicate your listing to top real estate websites like Zillow, Trulia, Redfin, and Realtor.com. This gives you additional exposure and increases the chances of selling your home quickly.

The biggest benefit of a Flat Fee MLS Listing Service is you save up to 6% on agent commissions. Flat Fee MLS eliminates the need for a full-service real estate agent to list your property. With a Flat Fee MLS California package, you get to list on MLS without a realtor and save 3% on listing agent commissions right away.

If you find a buyer who is not represented by an agent, you can save another 3% in buyer agent commissions through a flat fee listing in California.

With California Flat Fee MLS Listing Companies like Houzeo.com, you get to list your property on the MLS without having to go to traditional or flat fee real estate brokers.

The amazing tech features provided by Houzeo.com enable you to list within minutes, make changes to your listing quickly and easily, manage showings online, and manage offers received on your home online.

This saves you the hassle of coordinating with a real estate broker and dealing with manual paperwork. It is, therefore, beneficial to go for an MLS listing without a Realtor.

What is For Sale by Owner (FSBO) in California?

For Sale by Owner (FSBO), also pronounced as “fizbo” in real estate agents’ jargon, is a home selling process where a seller doesn’t hire a real estate broker to sell their home and sell it by themselves.
These sellers put a “FOR SALE BY OWNER” sign in their yard to show the buyers that their home is on sale. However, relying on a yard sign is not enough. If your FSBO yard sign is the only marketing medium for the sale of your house, you will eventually end up hiring a listing agent to make the sale. This will not only cost you time but also money.
This is where a Flat Fee MLS California Listing Service can be a lifesaver for you. Houzeo can list your home on the MLS California for a flat fee and give it all the exposure needed to sell your home quickly and to the right buyer.

  • What is a California Multiple Listing Service (MLS)?

    • A California MLS is a database, usually accessible only to real estate agents, where agents list and market properties to other agents. They can also offer a commission to other agents. In the US, over 80% of properties sell with buyer agents (most of the rest are property transfers to relatives, friends, etc.). So it's extremely important you get your home on the California MLS.

  • Is Flat Fee MLS legal?

  • Should I offer the buyer's agent a commission in California?

    • You can choose not to, but we recommend that you do. A majority of buyers are still represented by an agent.

Remember, with Houzeo, you've saved the seller's agent commission, which would normally be between 2% to 3%.

  • Will my California home appear on Zillow, Trulia Redfin, etc?

    • Yes. All Houzeo plans include syndication of your California Flat Fee MLS listing to major websites, including Zillow, Redfin, Realtor.com, Trulia, and many more.

    • It takes 24-48 hours for your listing to become active on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and other websites like Zillow, Trulia, and Realtor.com. Note that your agent is responsible only for getting your property on the California MLS.

      Sometimes the syndication to 3rd party websites like Zillow, Trulia, etc. may not work as intended, and you might need to contact them directly.

  • Are Flat Fee Realtors in California good?

    • A Flat Fee Realtor will get you listed and help you with the sale for a fixed fee rather than a percentage of the sale price at closing. It's important you check their reviews before you list with a Flat Fee Realtor in California. Houzeo has 5-star reviews over 2,500 from sellers on Google & Trustpilot.
