Flat Fee MLS for Selling Homes in Springfield Branson Areas

Flat Fee MLS for FSBO Sellers 

Springfield Branson Areas

For Sale by Owner ( FSBO ) home sellers now have access to a local Springfield/ Branson area broker to assist with everything from home marketing to contract negotiations and closing services with Ala Carte style real estate called fee for service from HouseKey Real Estate LLC who also does full service seller services for $1995.00 paid at closing.

The landscape of the real estate industry is a constantly changing as new technologies evolve to help both real estate agents meet expectations of home sellers and buyers having easy to access information on all properties for sale in any given market. better property marketing giving the best exposure to the most amount of buyers in history also helps bring the home sellers the greatest price for their home.

HouseKey Real Estate LLC in Springfield Missouri was created to serve a changing market to help merge traditional real estate broker services into full service discount real estate serving Southwest Missouri, Including For Sale by Owner Ala Carte services including Flat Fee MLS  ( NEVER list Flat Fee MLS with a out of the area broker and expect the same result, read below) which gets sellers homes that are for sale plugged into the Realtor marketing system ( MLS- Multiple Listing Service ) an automated syndication that agents use to market their listed properties to "first and foremost" all the other member agents of the Greater Springfield Board of Realtors member companies other agents within their own office. Listings are now "Syndicated" electronically to ALL the member broker websites which are being searched by active and passive buyers looking for a home. Listings are also syndicated to "Outside" 3rd party Non -member sites like,, and several more consumer home search sites. Access to listing property on the MLS is strictly available only to a member Realtor which HouseKey Real Estate is a member. We also handle FSBO contract negotiating and processing called Broker Assist  because although real estate sales has been made to look easy and as simple as selling a Buick on Criagslist it is far "over simplified" by those hoping to sell you on the "do it yourself" and save model but they don't tell you the risks involved and that your liability could be extended beyond the sale date.

Warning for  FSBO home sellers thinking of using a Flat Fee Broker from the internet who looks good online. Anybody in the country with $100.00 and a real estate licence who is a member of a Board of Realtors "Somewhere" in the country can get a Flat fee website and sell you the Sun Moon and the Stars. Its NOT regulated by anyone and I am not even sure the Missouri Real Estate Commission has a grip on these brokers as most are NOT holding a Missouri licence and those that do not will take your money and put you with a broker they choose who will take a piece of your fee in exchange for some service. Many will "Guaranty your Money Back" as a tool to get you to do business with them but the real motive is for you to possible fail in your Flat Fee MLS attempt. Let me explain how this works, you pay $500 or $200 and I have even seen $99.00 to get your Flat fee MLS access pass to get you home on the MLS, Nobody shows your house because they don't know your broker ( Not local ) and no responsible experienced broker is going to subject their buyer to dealing with an outside broker who does not understand our contracts, real estate customs or whatever the reason but you get the point so you decide to give up and in order to get your money back you need to go through the Flat Fee MLS broker you signed up with so they can have you use a local full service broker and you will need to pay the full fee ( normally 6-7%) paid at closing. so you list your $200,000 home that sells with the full service broker and the listing broker pays a referral fee back to your Flat Fee MLS broker upon sale of between 25-40% of the listing side commission which is between $1500.00 -$2400! Can you see how the Flat Fee Broker stands to earn more if you fail in Flat Fee MLS?
