Per Section 5.0 of the Rules and Regulations of the MLS, if you choose to list your property in the MLS you must make an unconditional offer of compensation on all listings of property for sale. The amount of compensation offered must be stated in the MLS as either (1) a percentage of the selling price or (2) a definite dollar amount. In either case, the amount must be unconditionally offered to cooperating brokers, and, compensation must be an amount greater than zero, expressed in the format indicated above.
As you begin to provide your property details to list FSBO on the MLS with us, you will have the opportunity to choose the compensation you’re willing to offer cooperating brokers. While during the listing process we allow you to select from seven (7) different compensation percentage values of the selling price, ranging from 1% to 3%, you’re welcome to select any value you desire that satisfies the MLS guidelines, which could be a percentage lower than 1%, higher than 3%, or, a fixed dollar amount at any level above $0.00 – should you wish to select a value outside the potential values we provide in our signup process, you may utilize our Listing Update Request form to alter your selection and we’ll update your MLS listing accordingly.
