As we all know, the housing market is still in the doldrums and does not look like it will be rebounding anytime soon. There is some hope for home sellers. A way to get maximum exposure and not pay the hefty 5 or 6% commissions that typical brokerages charge. Flat fee MLS services are on the rise and for good reason; Same advertising at half the cost. There are a ton of these companies out there, so below I highlighted just one of the many. They were one of the first in the business and continue to grow.
