To answer your latest questions:
1. Most locators will call your agent to find out if they are participating with locators or "non-members". Some locators are also REALTORS and have access to the MLS, some don't. Those that don't will know how to find your house through Austin Home Search, etc. It may be a good idea to have your REALTOR put a combo lock box on the door to allow non-members of the MLS to show the property.
2. The locator's commission will be decided within your listing agreement under the commission section. A locator who does not subscribe to the MLS will be considered a "non-member" This is where you and your agent will decide how much to compensate the locator or an agent from another association.
3. Most locators will know to ask you agent the commission. There's no specific place to put a "locator commission" in our MLS.
I hope this is helpful information and answers your questions. Feel free to contact me with any other questions.

Actual management services also vary between real estate brokers as are the services they provide, tenant screening, repairs, maintenance etc... We have a property management group if you are interested in talking details.
A good listing agent for a property such as this one will list the house on the MLS and directly connect with non-member locators through their personal database. Commission structure, like many terms in a transaction, is negotiable, but an owner in your situation should normally look to pay between 75%-100% of one month's rent to your listing agent. If another agent brings the tenant, your listing agent will split his or her commission.
I hope this helps. Feel free to contact me with any further questions.
Apartment locators likely won't be showing your home from mls. Typically, Apart Locators are sought out because someone is strictly looking for apartments. Those agents do not need mls access to show apartments, therefore they do not typically pay all the fees associated with mls access.
You pay your listing agent an agreed amount. Then your listing agent agrees to pay other agents a certain amount as well. Your agent should disclose how much he/she will be paying to other agents. this could also affect your competitive edge in the market place, so I recommend acknowledging this with your selected listing agent.
IE: You pay your Agent 1 month's rent to get your place leased. Then, your agent offers other Agents 25%, 30%, 40%, or 50% (or more) to bring a tenant to lease your property. Which figure do you think is more enticing to those agents? and, does this play a role in your competitive edge??
The MLS is a powerful marketing tool, so keep in mind the money you could lose if the house stays on the market for for more than two months. A good marketing plan will not only include the MLS, but also online sites too, so that even more people can view the property.
The tenant's agent will represent their interests with regard to locating a property and lease terms. The typical commission is 80-100% of 1 month's rent.
I would be happy to help you further. Please feel free to contact me anytime.
That is all negotiable and you would set those terms up with the realtor representing you as the owner/landlord. Interview local agents and find one that meets your requirements.
That is agreed between you and your listing agent. Some agents charge a month rent, some 75%, there is not set fee. The tenant's realtor is paid from that fee by the listing agent.
If you don't have an agent, I would be glad to come by your house, show you comps of what other similar homes in your neighborhood rent for and we can discuss the fee and all the other aspects. I just leased a property of my own, I do a lot of leases and am very familiar with zip 78759.

It's negotiable, but as Kevin said previously 70% to 100% of a months lease amoun total is quite typical. Your agent splits this amount with the renters agent. Some agencies that yo also have "manage" the lease property charge less.
Choose an agent that does leases in your area. Good Luck!
The listing for leases is always negotiable. I would be happy to help you or provide you any other info you might need. Please feel free to give me call at 609-9877 or send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you so much!

Typically, the listing agent will charge somewhere between 70% and 100% of one month's rent to lease the home. Usually, half goes to the listing agent and half goes to the agent who brings the tenant. Let me know if you have any other questions. Take care.
