The best flat-fee MLS services | Other ways to save | Additional resources

If you’re selling your home for sale by owner (FSBO) in Tucson, hiring a flat-fee MLS service can help you increase your listing’s visibility to potential buyers.

The average commission rate for full-service listing agents in Arizona is approximately 3%. Based on the median sale price for Tucson homes — which as of May 31, 2021 was $278,833 — that translates to about $8,365.

In contrast, you'll pay between $195 and $499 to list your home with flat-fee MLS companies in Tucson. The most basic flat-fee real estate packages will offer little more than a listing on the MLS, but more comprehensive packages could include additional services like help with negotiations and paperwork.

That being said, using a Tucson flat-fee MLS company to sell FSBO comes with additional costs in terms of time, energy, and your final sales price. You'll have to manage your own sale — from scheduling showings to drafting contracts. And, FSBO homes usually sell for 6% less on average than agented properties.

If using a flat-fee MLS company is still the right choice for your sale, we've picked some of the best flat-fee MLS services in Tucson.

But, if you're not ready to sell FSBO, one of your best options is to work with a discount real estate company like Clever. With Clever, you'll only pay 1% or $3,000 to list your home instead of the typical 3%. And, you'll get full-service support from a great Tucson realtor so you can sell for top dollar!

💰 SAVE: List with a full-service agent for just $3,000 or 1%
