Any Realtor in CT, unless their company prohibits it, can take a listing as a flat fee/courtesy. Using a courtesy listing brokerage, does usually count as a for sale by owner as some people like to call it to support their anti-Realtor opinions. 

The bottom line is that homes sold by an agent sell for a higher average than those sold by owners. And national surveys peg the real number of FSBO homes that do not sell and end up with a Realtor between 8 and 9. That is where you get a potential 90% failure rate for the for sale by owner homes.

I have a full-time job; I am a Realtor. When I need my tires rotated, I call my mechanic. DIY can be fun and seem like a good idea, but there is a reason you have the job you do. Save time and stress and just find the right professional from the get-go.

Gonna toss out stats from Realtor.org/The NAR then here's the rest from the same Survey results
2013 NAR Profile of Home Buyers & Sellers
Give it a look if interested and see what the National Association of Realtor Stats really say or suggest

21% of sellers use only a Flat Fee Realtor/Agency to be placed only on their local MLS or for other limited Service packages...these are considered "Agent-Assisted" and are included Sold for More group
Sooooo according to the stats 3 out of 10 Sellers do not use an Agent/Agency or only use a Flat Fee Realtor/Agency to be listed on the MLS/Limited Service for a Fee


So please do click on the link to the NAR SURVEY (Response rate of 6.1%) and see if you feel they are useful or interesting or what you feel they really say/suggest

Happy Selling and much success
