Flat Fee Companies are NOT the Same!

      

Flat Fee Companies that show a national map or multiple states are lead generation companies. They are not license in Georgia and are not members of our Multiple Listing Service (GAMLS and FMLS).  These companies will resale your lead to a license Georgia Real Estate Broker to service the listing.  You loose total control in what agency will list the property and what services they actually provide.
 
Almost all Flat Fee companies use your listing to work buyers.  Buyers will call the listing agency that has the property listed and the listing agency will show your property. All buyer leads will go to their buyer's agents and not the homeowner. 

To ensure buyers are reaching you.  We will provide you with a customized 'For Sale By Owner' yard sign with your phone number, brochure box and flyers.  Buyers will call you direct to see your home.
When choosing a Flat Fee company don't be fooled by low fees.  Companies that do not charge a small backend fee are not listing your property in the FMLS which charges a service fee at closing.

Don’t assume all Flat Fee Companies are all the same.  You may end up paying for more than what you bargain for while loosing valuable buyers by not being listed in the correct MLS system.
