List2Move.com has been doing Flat Fee MLS in Rochester NY now for over 7 years and their business philosophy hasn’t changed from day one;
“if you give homeowners the same tools as the professionals, they will succeed.”
When we started years ago there was only one other company doing flat fee and they were doing it for over a thousand dollars. We hit the market using technology and the Internet and at a fraction of their cost we put them out of business. We developed systems to eliminate the middlemen in the equation which equates to big savings.
The founder of List2Move.com delivered a talk to the the NYS Bar on New Business Models in real estate in 2006.
Today there are many companies practicing flat fee but they are not the same! We can break it into two groups;
Practitioners and Skimmers
National Companies are the perfect Skimmers. Examples include, Owners.com, and Forsalebyowner.com. These companies take your money upfront and dump you off to the lowest bidding agent they can find so they can keep most of your money.
Once you are dumped off…. you are dumped off!
There are even local Skimmers like Homesbyowner.com in Rochester NY. who is just another broker not associated with the local MLS. They take your $$$$ upfront and then when you realize their website doesn’t do anything for you, they will attempt to dump you off to another broker (for another fee…hmmmm) to get you in the MLS where you should have been in the first place.
America’s choice is another skimmer who makes you pay to get on their website. Not associated with the MLS, and again, when you realize their website doesn’t do anything for you they will attempt to dump you off to another broker called 2.5% Direct (for another fee…hmmmm) to get you in the MLS where you should have been in the first place.
Skimmers are Scammers!
