  • What is MLS?
    Multiple Listing Service or MLS is a tool to help listing brokers find cooperative brokers working with buyers to help sell their clients' homes. This is the same tool that Real Estate Agents and brokers use to list and market homes. The MLS provides the bedrock of information millions of people depend on to make smart real estate decisions. The vast majority of home sales happen by real estate brokers and agents working together on the MLS, not because of portals, websites or apps.
  • Will my home be on Zillow and
    Yes! Most home listings can be found on popular home search apps and websites because they get their information from the Multiple Listing Service. But the Multiple Listing Service contains information that you will not find publicly: showing instructions that will allow real estate agents and brokers to tour properties outside of open house times, comments from sellers’ agents and even data points that cannot be displayed publicly due to privacy concerns.
  • Is this the same MLS that Realtors use?
    Yes. As we are a brokerage licensed by the state of Florida and members of the National Association of Realtors we use the same MLS that all realtors use.
  • What areas do you cover?
    At Florida Flex Realty, we pride ourselves on our statewide coverage. With our comprehensive MLS access, we can list any home located in the state of Florida. Once your listing is in the MLS, it is syndicated to numerous websites, ensuring maximum exposure for your property to potential buyers across the state and beyond. Rest assured, your home will receive the attention it deserves with Florida Flex Realty.
  • How long is the listing agreement?
    Our listing agreements are 6 months long.
  • Do I have to pay a real estate commission?
    "When you choose one of our DIY Listing packages, you'll only need to cover the package fee to list your property in the MLS. While it's not mandatory to offer compensation to the cooperating agent who brings the buyer, it's highly encouraged. This compensation is entirely at your discretion, but we generally recommend offering a minimum of 2% of the purchase price to the buyer's agent. Once your listing is in the MLS, you're contractually obligated to the agreed-upon compensation for the buyer's side/cooperating realtor."
  • Why do I have to offer a buyers agent comission?
    To list your property in the MLS, offering compensation to the buyer's agent is not mandatory, but it's highly encouraged. When your listing is put into the MLS the buyers agent is aware of how much the seller is willing to pay. You have the flexibility to determine the amount. If the buyer purchases your home directly without representation, no commission is required. Compensation is only applicable if the buyer is represented by an agent.
  • Can I really sell my home on my own?
    Yes, of course! The state of Florida allows you to sell a property that you own and you do not need a license to do so.
  • Will Agents show my Home?
    Yes. Depending on the package you chose to list your home you will either be contacted by real estate agents directly to setup showings or you will use an electronic showing approval system.
  • What is the difference between listing with you and listing with a realtor?
    There is no difference! We are a fully licensed and insured real estate brokerage in the state of Florida! The level of service will differ based upon the package you choose.
  • Why put your listing into MLS?
    When we place your home on the Multiple Listing Service, we ensure that your home is displayed on nearly every real estate company website in town and on top real estate search apps. Placing your listing into MLS puts your home in front of Brokers, Real Estate Agents and distributes it to all major real estate websites like,,,,, and many more!
