In addition to being placed in your local MLS system, your listing will also be syndicated automatically to numerous local and national websites like Zillow and Trulia.
Traditional listing compensation structures will "split" the commission between the listing agent and the buyer's agent. Therefore, if you are paying 6% at the closing, the buyer's agent would normally expect about half or 3%. With EZ Choice MLS, to list and market your home we charge as little as $99! We then recommend that you offer around 3% to a buyer's agent in the MLS. This will insure that agents will be motivated to show your home to potential buyers. However, the choice is yours to make and you may offer more or less than 3% depending on your desire and situation.
From the moment you list your property you will be able to speak to a member of our staff who can assist you with your listing. You will be available to speak with them throughout the term of your listing. They will be able to assist you with general questions about your listing, however, if you need additional support you are able to purchase any of our additional options.
At any time during the term of your listing you may log-in to your account and select additional marketing materials or additional consultation packages.
First of all, we offer one of the most inexpensive and comprehensive listing packages available anywhere. Unlike other sites, we offer an abundance of Realtor consultation and assistance packages. We are truly allowing you to "List for yourself, not by yourself".
Every time someone contacts our office about your listing, the LEAD will be forwarded directly to you by e-mail for follow-up. You will then have an opportunity to show them your house and hopefully secure them as a buyer! If this buyer is not being represented by an agent you will be able to avoid ALL BUYER'S AGENT COMMISSIONS! If you are not comfortable working with the leads that are generated from your listing, please contact our office as we will be able to work something out with you on the commission if that lead buys your property. Buyer Lead Disclaimer
Realtors will contact you directly to show your property and schedule a time directly with you. If you have selected our Showing Assistance Package Realtors will contact our office and one of our professional staff members will schedule the time with you and follow up with every showing for feedback.
Once you locate a buyer for your property, either through another Realtor or on your own, simply contact our office to inform us of your situation and we will assist you further. If you would like one of our licensed Realtors to provide contracts and/or assistance with buyer and/or the other agent, simply log-in and select one of our additional options! It's just that simple.
If, at any time during your listing, you wish to cancel or terminate your listing, simply contact us by phone or e-mail and we will terminate your listing without penalty. If you wish to cancel your MLS listing within the first 3 days, we do offer a refund. Money Back Guarantee Details

The initial listing term runs for a period of 7 months, however, there is no penalty if you sell the home or elect to cancel. You may also renew your listing for an additional 6 months for $29.
A short sale is when your lender agrees to accept less than your loan payoff. You must speak to your lender to see if they will agree to a short sale. If you would like to be referred to a Realtor that specializes in short sales please contact our office.

Yes, after your online registration is complete you will be directed to the correct listing contract and addendums that you can fill out.
Your price should be determined by assessing the sale price and asking price of the properties surrounding you that are comparable to your property. If you require assistance with pricing your property, simply select the CMA option and one of our licensed associates will prepare a market analysis of your property and surrounding community to help determine the best asking price for your property. You are under no obligation to use our recommendation. It is simply a tool to help you assess the market.
EZ Choice MLS offers all same services, the very same marketing and superior customer support, but utilizes a different and more progressive pay structure! Our experienced staff of licensed Real Estate agents are available to assist you throughout your entire listing but rather than paying one large commission we simply provide a way for you to pay only for the tools you need. If you feel a more traditional listing structure would suite you better please visit www.ezchoicerealty.com to be put in touch with an agent that specializes in your area.
The Multiple Listing Service is a database of properties available for sale or lease, offered by Realtors and Real Estate offices in your area. This database then becomes available to thousands of potential buyers looking for a property just like yours!
There will be no additional fees to you unless you elect to choose additional services offered by company. If you sell the property through the MLS and a buyers agent is involved, following industry standards, we do collect a $200 fee from the buyers agent involved with the closing. We collect this fee from the buyers agent in an effort to keep our listing fees to you, the seller, as low as possible. This fee doesn't pertain to rental listings.
