Many MLS sites automatically feed the listings to hundreds of websites. Your Realtor should know of a few or do a Google search for the address and see how many pop up.

I agree with Tim: Once your property is on an MLS, it's usually "broadcast" to many, many real estate websites. So in that limited way, it doesn't matter which brokerage you list with, so long as your home gets on the MLS, it'll be viewed by buyers on more websites than you can count!

V-Flyer syndicates to real estate websites and gives you HTML to post to Craigslist. You also get the option to post to Facebool and Twitter.

Take a look at the syndication your MLS already does. IT is very likely your listing is being propagated to a gazillion sites anyway. Some MLS systems allow you the option of restricting who you allow to steal your data. Your franchise website may also syndicate to a plethora of websites. Now, with that information, you have two choices:

1. Go to those gazilllion sites and insure the data regarding this listing is not altered...every month. Not a good option.

2. Select websites not appearing on the syndication list and are compatible with your real estate for sale inventory and enter your data there.

Be sure to check with the CRM system you use with your real estate business. Many of them have easy posting tools for Craigslist, Facebook, Twitter and other sites. Point2Agent, for instance, has an incredible portfolio of syndication sites you can selectively enable.

Hi Ryan. There are some "flat fee" brokerages who will post your property on the MLS for a fixed amount of money (instead of a commission). As a Realtor myself, I've personally seen that most sellers who list with a flat-fee brokerage ultimately choose to work with a more traditional Realtor who will not only list a property on the MLS, but also provide the other services, advise, counseling, marketing, transaction expertise and general customer service that go into representing your interests in the local real estate market. Realtors, generally, doesn't get paid until the property sells, so we stay motivated to see the sale of your property through from listing to close.

If I were you, I would contact a local Realtor, have them visit me for a free consultation to get their thoughts on the comparison between locally available "flat fee" brokerages and a traditional Realtor's more comprehensive services.

Good luck either way!
