Thanks for the thoughts on this. I am a licensed broker in Illinois and am renting a house that I own. In the Chicago area, the landlord typically compensates the listing agent a full month's rent, which is then split with the tenant's agent. In my case, if I listed it on the MLS I only need to pay the 1/2 month commission to the tenant's agent. Currently the house is only listed on Craigslist and it getting good interest at the higher price. Luckily, with today's tight rental market, bewteen the MLS and Craigslist there's only one other 3BD+ house in town competing with mine!
