Save Six Percent in Long Island Real Estate Agent Commission

Seller closing costs in Long Island are high enough, so why give away another 6% of your sale proceeds by hiring a full-service listing agent?

As a seller, it’s never been easier to leverage technology in order to market your home with the same effectiveness as a traditional agent but for a fraction of the price.

Your typical full-service brokerage in Long Island will offer you countless excuses for why they are justified in charging you the full 6% commission. They will claim that their marketing is top notch and that they have a list of buyers already lined up to purchase your property.

After speaking with a traditional agent, you will be led to believe that there is no other way for your property to be comprehensively marketed aside from hiring a full-service listing agent.

What these full-commission brokerages fail to mention is that you can achieve the same marketing exposure by using Hauseit’s Long Island Flat Fee MLS listing package.

Engage the 75% of Buyers Represented by Agents

Over 75% of buyers are represented by buyer’s agents in Long Island. If you fail to effectively co-broke with buyer’s brokers, it means that you are marketing your listing to just 25% of potential buyers.

Buyer’s agents habitually avoid FSBO listings because they are inherently riskier.

When there are thousands of broker-listed properties with documented commissions posted in MLS LI (MLS Long Island), why would a buyer’s agent send his or her buyer to a FSBO listing and risk being paid less commission or none at all? 

Our Long Island Flat Fee MLS package solves this fundamental trust issue by advertising your listing in MLS LI for all 26,000 member agents to see.

Over 26,000 LIBOR agents use MLS LI to search for and directly send listings to buyers. By being listed on the Long Island MLS, your listing will therefore receive unparalleled exposure to virtually every single agent on Long Island.

What is a Long Island Flat Fee MLS Listing?

A Long Island Flat Fee MLS Listing is a easy and effective way for you to market your home to thousands of buyer’s agents without having to hire a listing agent. Because roughly 75% of buyers in Long Island are represented by buyer’s agents (buyer’s brokers), its essential for you to advertise your home to agents if you are looking for the best possible sale outcome.

Using a Long Island Flat Fee MLS Listing service means that your property will be advertised simultaneously to all 26,000 members of the Long Island Board of Realtors. Your listing will be placed into MLSLI (Multiple Listing Service of Long Island), which is a database of over 25,000 listings currently for sale across Long Island.

Access to MLSLI (Long Island MLS) is member-only, and it’s the system that over 26,000 buyer’s agents in Long Island use to search for and send suitable listings to their buyer clients.

What is the Multiple Listing Service (MLS)?

According to the National Association of Realtors, an MLS is a “private offer of cooperation and compensation by listing brokers to other real estate brokers.” In short, the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is a shared database of listings accessible only by fellow brokers who are members of the MLS. When a property is listed on MLS, it means that any fellow member of the MLS is contractually eligible to earn a commission if he/she finds a buyer for the property. This gives buyer agents the comfort and motivation to market your home to their clients.

As a seller in Long Island, the only way to have your property listed on the local MLS (MLSLI) is to hire a listing agent who is a member of the MLS system. Using a Long Island Flat Fee MLS Listing enables you to list your home on MLSLI (MLS Long Island) for a one-time, flat fee as opposed to hiring a traditional listing agent and paying 6% in commission.

There are currently over 800 different MLS systems, so it’s critical that you choose the right MLS before listing your home. Fortunately, the choice in Long Island is easy. MLSLI (Multiple Listing Service Long Island) offers comprehensive coverage throughout Long Island.

Why should I list my property on MLS Long Island (MLS LI)?

Listing your property on the MLS ensures that your property receives the full attention of the 75% of buyers who are represented by buyer’s agents. As a FSBO seller, failing to list on the MLS means that the vast majority of buyer’s agents won’t ever see your listing. In Long Island, over 2,280 real estate offices use the MLSLI search database when looking for suitable listings to send buyers. Your listing will not appear here unless you use a Long Island Flat Fee MLS Listing.

For the handful of buyer brokers that do see your listing, most of them will ignore your listing. FSBO sellers are notorious for trying to re-negotiate commissions or trying to weasel out of buyer agent compensation altogether. After all, why would a buyer’s agent risk his/her commission by sending a buyer to a FSBO listing when there are dozens of traditional, MLS-listed properties which offer guaranteed commissions?

Even if the buyer agent decided to show your property, he/she would have to waste time by making you sign a commission agreement. This makes your listing uncompetitive relative to every single listing on MLSLI, which already have contractual commissions on offer to buyer’s agents.

What is the Long Island Board of Realtors (LIBOR)?

The Long Island Board of Realtors, also known as LIBOR, is a “not-for-profit trade association that serves real estate professionals throughout Nassau, Suffolk and Queens counties. LIBOR is the largest local REALTOR® Board in the United States. REALTOR® members subscribe to a strict Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. Not every real estate licensee can be called a REALTOR®. LIBOR members may elect to participate in the MLS, and are members of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), and the New York State Association of REALTOR®.”

As of 2017, LIBOR has over 26,000 active members. There are approximately 7,000 members in Queens County, 9,000 members in Nassau County, and 7,000 members in Suffolk County. Over 50% of New York State’s realtors, which number approximately 55,000, are members of the Long Island Board of Realtors.

What is MLSLI (MLS LI)?

The Multiple Listing Service of Long Island, Inc. (MLSLI) is a computerized network of 2,280 real estate offices located in Nassau, Suffolk, Queens and Brooklyn. The Multiple Listing Service of Long Island, Inc. is a subsidiary of the Long Island Board of Realtors, Inc. (LIBOR). MLSLI is used by over 26,000 agents to search for and send suitable listings to buyer clients. At any given time there are approximately 25,000 listings on MLSLI (MLS LI).

Over 75% of buyers are represented by buyer’s agents who exclusively use MLSLI to screen inventory and send relevant properties to buyer clients. If you list FSBO on Long Island and fail to list on MLSLI, it effectively means that you have excluded your listing from virtually every single buyer’s agent on Long Island. This means that you’ve restricted your pool of buyers by 75% or more, which materially decreases your likelihood of selling for the highest price or selling at all.

What areas of Long Island do you service?

Our Long Island Flat Fee MLS Listing Service is available across all of Long Island including Nassau County, Suffolk County and Queens County. If you are selling in Queens, we can also place your listing in REBNY’s (Real Estate Board of New York) RLS broker database which is the dominant broker database throughout New York City.

Being listed on both MLSLI and RLS will offer your listing exposure to over 26,000 LIBOR and 17,000 REBNY buyer agents, respectively.

What do I do when I accept an offer, enter contract or close on my sale?

In each instance when you’ve accepted an offer, signed a contract and closed, please let us know as soon as possible by submitting an update here. MLSLI (MLS LI) requires that status updates be relayed same-day, and they issue automatic fines to anyone who does not provide updates in a timely manner. To avoid these MLS fines being passed onto you, we kindly ask that you keep us informed on the progress of your sale.

Do you offer a lockbox and a for sale sign?

Yes, we offer both lock boxes and for sale signs. Once you’ve submitted your FSBO listing details, please contact us to inquire about these additional offerings.
