You might sell on your own too with all the exposure you will be getting so whichever way your house sells, you’re going to save money! Bottom line, it will sell and you will save some serious money!Why Flat Fee REALTOR Listing Albany NY

 It’s Simple. Here’s How It Works.

● You pay a one time flat fee and your house goes into the MLS (Capital Region Multiple Listing Service, Inc.) and on over 75 additional top real estate websites including,, and many more.

● We list your property but you do not pay us a listing commission, just the one time flat fee. You save about 50% right there by not paying a listing commission.

● If a buyer’s broker sells your house, you pay them the commission that you decided on when you listed your house in the MLS (usually 2-3%) at the closing. That’s it, there is no other commission due anyone!

● You retain your right to sell on your own (For Sale By Owner) and pay no commission to anyone if you sell to your own buyer. MLS brokers will also be trying to sell your house so either you sell it yourself or a broker sells it, whichever comes first.

● Buyers and agents will be calling you directly. You will be responsible for answering questions, arranging appointments, showing the house, doing any optional open houses, follow up, etc. We get your house maximum exposure and marketing support but you do some of the work and save about 50% or more in the process. With a $200,000 house, you would save at least $6,000 (minus the flat fee) without the listing commission and possibly twice that amount if you sold it yourself plus you still get the benefit of professional coaching from Brass Realty. Remember you are saving the 3% listing commission for your efforts and instead paying just the one time flat fee. If you don’t mind doing some of the work, you can save a lot of money, thousands! If an agent sells your house, they will then take over the responsibilities to get it closed.

● There is no price limit up to $500,000, the more expensive the house, the more you save!

● You sign up for the service online and your listing is in the MLS usually within 24-48 hours after you complete and return the online forms & pictures.
