If you’re selling your home for sale by owner (FSBO) in Fort Worth, 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 Texas is approximately 3%. Based on the median sale price for Fort Worth homes — which as of January 31, 2024 was $372,667 — that translates to about $11,180.

In contrast, you'll pay between $275 and $1,195 to list your home with flat fee MLS companies in Fort Worth. 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 Fort Worth 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 Fort Worth.

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 1.5% to list your home instead of the typical 3%. And you'll get full-service support from a great Fort Worth realtor so you can sell for top dollar!

💰 SAVE: List with a full-service agent for just 1.5%
