The 3 most common methods for you to market and sell your home are:
Full Commission Broker - You hire an agent that advertises the property and completes the transaction
For Sale By Owner - You place a sign in your yard, advertises the property on public websites, such as Craigslist, and completes the transaction yourself
Flat Price Listing- You pay to have your home listed on the NEFAR MLS and have the option to close the transaction yourself or be guided through the transaction by a professional Broker
The goal of any of these methods is to sell the property in the shortest time for the maximum amount of profit.

A Passport Realty Flat Price MLS Listing displays your home on the Northeast Florida Association of Realtors Multiple Listing Service (MLS).
The MLS is an internet service that is accessed daily by thousands of real estate agents searching for properties for their Buyers. These agents are in constant contact with Buyers who have hired them to find properties with specific features.
The second benefit from a Passport Realty Flat Price Listing is that the MLS listing is THE gateway to all the other major internet real estate sites. In addition to the MLS, your home will appear on sites such as Realty.com, Trulia and Zillow.
Realtor.com is most frequently visited property listing site in the world. The ONLY way for a property to be advertised on Realtor.com through an MLS listing.
Wasn't the goal to eliminate Real Estate Agents? YES and NO!
Remember, in a Full Commission Broker transaction you pay 2 broker fees. One fee is to your Listing Agent that lists the property on the MLS, and the other fee is to Buyer's Agent that represents the Buyer.
These 2 agents split the standard 6% commission with each paid 3% of the sales price.
Only 7% of houses sold in the Northeast Florida market are sold by the Listing Agent.
That means that 93% of the properties sold in Northeast Florida are sold by an agent OTHER than the one YOU hired!!
Since the main function of your Listing Agent is to place the property on the MLS;
JUST FINDING A LESS EXPENSIVE WAY TO BE LISTED ON THE MLS WOULD SAVE YOU 3% OF THE PURCHASE PRICE, 93% OF THE TIME.
The second benefit from a Passport Realty Flat Price Listing is that the MLS listing is the gateway to all the other major internet real estate sites. In addition to the MLS, your home will appear on sites such as Realty.com, Trulia and Zillow.
Realtor.com is most frequently visited property listing site in the world. The only way for a property to be advertised on Realtor.com through an MLS listing.
In today's market, 86% of buyers start searching for a home online, before ever contacting a real estate agent.
In many cases the function of the yard sign is to assure the Buyer that they are at the house they viewed on the internet ad.
There have been many instances where a Buyer views an internet ad and makes an offer on your property without contacting a Buyer's Agent. In this case, you would not have to pay the Buyer's Agent commission. The entire cost of advertising and selling the property would be the $249 Listing Fee!!
