7 Best Georgia Flat-Fee MLS Companies

If you're selling your home for sale by owner (FSBO) in Georgia, hiring a flat-fee MLS service can help you increase your listing's visibility without breaking the bank.

The average commission rate for full-service listing agents in the The Peach State is approximately 3%. Based on the median sale price for Georgia homes, as of November 2019, that translates to about $7,350.

In contrast, typical rates for flat-fee MLS companies in Georgia are in the $69 to $499+ range. The most basic plans can be as low as $50 to $99, while more comprehensive services range upwards of $1,000 to $3,000.

It's important to remember that every Georgia flat-fee MLS service is different. When evaluating offerings, be sure to read the fine print: look at things like the length of the listing term (and how much it costs to extend); whether there's a fee to make changes to your listing; how many photos are allowed; the policy on buyer's agent commission; and more.

Alternatives to Flat-Fee MLS in Georgia

The Georgia real estate market is hot. According to Zillow, the median home value rose 4.9% over the past year and is expected to see an increase of 4.3% in 2020. To realize your home's full value (or ideally more), it's important to weigh all of your options for selling before making a final decision.

Quick Tip: Don't let upfront "savings" cost you thousands when you sell your home...

Yes, a flat-fee MLS service can save you money on commission — if you know what you're doing. However, homes listed "For Sale By Owner" with an MLS service typically sell for thousands less than agent-assisted homes. 

Plus, there's no guarantee your home actually sells. Since flat-fee MLS services are paid upfront, that means you're out the hundreds of dollars you already spent. 

The Alternative: List with Clever and get a top agent for a reduced rate. 

At Clever, our free service connects you to top-rated agents from name brands like Keller Williams, RE/MAX, Century 21, and more — full-service agents with a proven record of selling fast, for top dollar. 

You pay $0 upfront. So if you don't see the value when you talk to an agent, you're free to walk away. No strings attached. But if you do decide to work with any agent, you'll also get an exclusive low rate — a flat $3,000 or a reduced commission of just 1%.
