Most people don’t know that anyone can list their home on MLS by paying a one time fee to the listing broker and pay no commission. Why would the broker do this you may ask if he doesn’t get a commission? The answer is simple. Because the broker does not do the showings, negotiating or market the property at all. The homeowner is responsible for all the marketing and showing their own home.
