According to studies, the most difficult task for a FSBO is pricing your house for sale. It’s not surprising that Realtors spend a lot of time analyzing how much properties have sold for recently to establish an accurate asking price for their listings. Unlike Realtors, FSBOs have a difficult time accessing a comprehensive view of the market at a level of detail that can unlock the best listing price. That’s why we suggest FSBOs purchase our How to Price FSBO Guide, a customized report for your neighborhood that will arm you as a FSBO with the same tools and information that Realtors use every day.
Professionally designed real estate flyers for both open houses and private showings help FSBOs command top dollar for their property. In several of our listing packages, we provide clients with free real estate flyer templates for Word and Mac that are both highly professional in design and easy to edit.
When you submit a Listing Update Request form, we confirm receipt of that request and strive to process the change directly into the MLS system by the next business day, oftentimes faster. After a change is made directly in the MLS as the ultimate system of record for your listing, it will syndicate across the Internet to third party websites (such as Realtor.com, Zillow, Trulia, etc.). FSBOs can make an unlimited number of update requests on their listing at no additional charge.
With any real estate transaction, there’s paperwork, offers to negotiate, contracts, escrow accounts for earnest money deposits, showings, open houses, etc., and with an entry only MLS listing, the property owner, or a licensed real estate attorney you decide to hire, is responsible for such activities. You are advised to retain a licensed real estate attorney for the preparation of all legal documents and to serve as escrow agent.
Yes, of course. Simply use our Listing Update Request form to request cancellation of your listing at any time during your listing agreement period. If you decide that an entry only MLS listing is not for you, or even if you’d like to switch your listing to a traditional brokerage charging a full commission, no problem. We do not impose cancellation penalties or fees of any kind, however, we do not provide refunds.
You are also welcome to temporarily withdraw your listing from the MLS, and put the listing back on the market at a later date, at no charge, so long as these updates fall within the duration of your listing agreement. As a courtesy, Entry Only New England wants to make clients aware of the Temporarily Withdrawn property status type – there is no additional fee to use a Temporarily Withdrawn status, such a change request is included in a client’s unlimited listing changes.
