If I were doing a FSBO at this time, I'd probably look for a local agent or brokerage who'd take a flat fee listing.   There are a lot of companies that advertise flat fee listings, they have variable recommendations so you are right to question.

You cannot list a FSBO in a real, local MLS.

The MLS system is proprietary to licensed real estate agents, who pay for its use and for membership.

There are no other MLS, other than the MLS operated by licensed local Realtors.

While Zillow asks us not to promote a specific company, one good tool is to check whether the company you are considering is a member of the local MLS in your area (as opposed to a referral company that farms out your listing to another brokerage).  You may also want to look at contacting other sellers in your city who are currently listed with the company you are considering, to find out their experiences.  In some cases the contact information for those sellers is displayed on the company's website.
