You have options..
You for example can use a Flat-Fee Service (Realtor/Agency) to list your property on your local MLS..

Excellent information can be found on your options as a Consumer at the Dept. of Justice Anti-Trust Division web site...

options available to consumers

In many parts of the country, the traditional full-service real estate broker now faces competition from a variety of real estate brokerage models, many of which use the Internet to reduce costs:

Fee-for-Service Arrangements

Brokers willing to sell a subset of real estate brokerage services, often called fee-for-service brokers, have emerged throughout the country. Fee-for-service brokers "unbundle" the package of real estate services typically offered by traditional full-service real estate brokers and charge a set or hourly fee for specific services, such as listing the house in the MLS, negotiating or closing contracts, and pricing the home. These brokerage models typically enable consumers to save thousands of dollars by allowing them to purchase only those services they want.

Rebates and Inducements

Some real estate brokers have increasingly begun to compete for customers by offering cash rebates or other inducements to home buyers and sellers. Rebates that go directly to buyers or sellers lower costs on both sides of the transaction. Cash rebates are usually calculated as some fraction of the broker's commission and can result in thousands of dollars being returned to the consumer.

New business models can save consumers money

Most consumers want to make as much money as possible on the sale of their home and spend no more than necessary when purchasing a home. In many cases, the standard broker's commission can offset a portion of the equity value that has been building up in a seller's home or push the price of a home beyond a buyer's purchasing power. Consumers who want to perform some of the steps involved in selling a home can reap significant financial savings by purchasing only those real estate brokerage services they actually want.

Just as the Internet has made it easier for consumers to save money by directly purchasing plane tickets and stocks, it is now making it feasible for home sellers and buyers to do more of the work themselves and pocket the savings...Competing models of real estate brokerage

Montana..Allows choice of brokerage services/Allows brokers to offer rebates to consumers What are the laws in your state?



Please give the site a look..do some research, call/ask around locally, internet search to learn as much as possible about which choices/options are available to you in your area and determine which will work best for you in your situation...

Agents/Agencies are selling Services and competing for business. It's only natural to expect them to sell/push whatever Services they sell..

Shop smart & Good Luck

Paul is absolutely correct! Only licensed Realtors and Brokers have access to the MLS.

Hello, 
       Thanks for the great question.  Its actually one of my favorite questions!.  if you would like to get your home or property on a MLS, all you need to do is contact a trustworthy and I would suggest local realtor.  They will be able to walk you through whatever questions you have and usually would be glad to assit you with getting it listed properly.  
Many Thanks, Paul Mahan
