Advertising for a Flat Fee Listing is not really any different than Advertising for a traditional listing. The only real difference is your handling the advertising yourself. In a traditional listing your agent should take care of this. However, many agents do not provide an active and effective advertising campaign. Many say they “list em and leave em”. A not so welcome occurrence if you are a Seller paying a 6% commission to get your home sold. In my experience, a good agent will talk with you about how they intend to market your property. When your Advertising For a Flat Fee Listing just do the same things yourself. You save the big commission and hopefully get the same result.
