Yes - go to - it is one of the most user friendly sites and consistently wins awards. You can create preferences to have listings emailed to you - price changes are also something that you can request. If you need help, please let me know, and I would be happy to walk you through it. It is a great way to look preliminarily - especially to get a feel for prices - you absolutely need to look at the property to see adjacencies, location, quality etc - and for this you need a good realtor - one who will keep your best interest front and center. ... more

Hi Nala,
It is difficult to comment without seeing the actual contract, lease agreement and Brokerage Bill.

Look for the commission language and read through the fine print for any notations regarding marketing & MLS fees. I am sure your agent/Brokerage will keep to the letter of the contract!
Hope this helps!

If I work with a tenant to find a rental from the MLS then I collect the fee from the listing agent or landlord if it is offered in the listing. If they will not pay a fee, then I will tell the tenant up front and negotiate with them to pay for my services. All of these commission and other fee details are always spelled out in the Buyer/Tenant Agency Agreement that you should sign with your agent to protect both your rights and the rights of your agent to represent you. ... more
