If you want to list on Realtor.com, you can contract with a flat fee company to place it on the MLS that sends to that website. Often, sellers often choose to offer the buyers agents a commission to bring more exposure, but it is up to you as the seller what to offer.

As the name implies Realtor.Com is for Realtors.

I am surprised at some of these responses to this one. Are you listed with a Realtor? If not, yes, you need to talk to three Realtors. Chose the best one that suits you. Otherwise use a limited listing company where you represent yourself and you pay less BUT you have no representation and in the end its more trouble than its worth.

If you go FSBO or with a limited listing company here are a few things that you need to consider.

1.) Will you be available to show your home when someone wants to see it. Usually a 2 hour or less notice.
2.) Do you have all the disclosures that are required by state law to sell your home?
3.) Can you take phone calls while working to schedule showings?
4.) How much experience do you have negotiating?
5.) Do you have the means to screen potential buyers to make sure they are qualified.

Because if you do a FSBO or a limited listing company then these tasks will be your responsibility. Then you will also need to advertise your home as well.

Why not hire a Realtor and let him or her do the work for you and you just sit back and trust that you are taken care of? Interview three to make sure you pick the best one that suits you. Good Luck!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Realtor.com does not list FSBO. Because as the name implies it is owned by NAR, we Realtors pay every month for the right to list on the MLS and to have access to its many functions. Studies show that most FSBO deals that have closed. The Seller walks away with 11% less then when they use a Realtor. Most Realtors can tell you stories of how years have pasted and then out of the blue they or some one they work with are served with a law suite for thing like Misrepresentation, Breach of fiduciary duty, Fair housing, Antitrust, False or Misleading advertising and Environmental issues and the list goes on. We have E&O insurance and general liability. How often are we found at fault? Not very often at all. Because we spend lots of time and money on education, training and insurance. We also only get paid if your home sells!! And yes 6% seems like a lot but it is split between two agents who pay for advertising, printing costs, fuel, open houses, brokerage ,franchise fees and desk fees. And using a Realtor you the seller walk away with more in you pocket.

Looks like someone needs to retake the ethics course again with special attention to the part about commissions.

Yep that's what I was going to say. I don't think Realtor.com puts anything on their website that is not on the MLS. Like the reply, you can hire a Realtor to put you home for sale on the MLS with what is known as a limited Service Agreement. The cost varies on the Realtor and the amount of work involved. Some people call it discounted services, as well. The less you pay he less you work you receive from your agent. Also that is how discount brokers charge only 4% for listing properties. The split is 3% for the buyers agent and then a 1% pre-paid fee for putting the listing on the MLS. That typically includes taking pictures, a virtual tour, property info, etc. The Realtor, however, can make the additional 3%.commission if they end up bringing the buyer. Hope that helps.

If  you wish to have your FSBO listing on realtor.com, then you'll have to find a either a flat fee listing service or an agent who will list your home on the MLS.
