Detroit, Michigan Flat Fee MLS Brokerage Listing Service. 
We are Michigan's #1 Detroit, Flat Fee MLS Direct Listing service. We input and oversee our listings. Better service, better results.

Detroit, For Sale By Owner MLS Listing.  You can be for sale by owner and still listed in the MLS. You only pay the small, upfront fee. If you find your own buyer for sale by owner, you owe no commission. If a Realtor brings you the buyer from your flat fee MLS listing, pay them their half, typically 2-3%.

Who on earth wants to pay 6% or so to sell their home? I've been a broker for 35 years and have yet to meet anyone that does. It's sickening to see that huge commission when you sign your closing docs! There is simply too much of one's hard earned equity wasted in high Realtor commissions from traditional Realtors.

What's the solution? Simple. A Flat Fee MLS listing!  A Flat Fee MLS listing gives you the best of both worlds.  Rather than paying that huge commission at the time of sale, simply pay a small, flat fee at the time of listing.  For this "flat fee" we give you the same MLS listing you'd get with any local Realtor.  If you sell your home for sale by owner, you owe no other fees. If an agent brings you the buyer, then you pay them their half, typically 2% to 3% as their coop fee.

Remember too, once a home is listed in the local MLS, it is an automatic datafeed to a host of other sites like; Zillow,, Trulia, Redfin, C21, Keller Williams and tons of others!  There is little else even a top producing Realtor can do to find a buyer once your home is listed. In fact, most MLS's have thousands of agents that are members so the odds of your listing agent bring you a buyer are remote at best.  With our  Detroit Flat Fee MLS Michigan listing you get the same great marketing you'd get with any top producing agent!

Our  Detroit Flat Fee MLS Michigan discount flat fee MLS listing unbundles the services a traditional real estate brokerage offers and list the property for sale in the local multiple listing service (MLS) a la carte without requiring the seller to use its services for valuation assistance, negotiating, transaction management and showing accompaniment. It's up to the seller what services they wish to pay for.

Flat Fee brokers are real estate brokers, just like the national brand names, but offer discounted or unbundled services. Most flat fee brokers do offer full service brokerage services.

Note too, we offer full Realtor  services too, not just a Detroit Flat Fee MLS Michigan flat fee mls limited service listing. As a matter of fact, about 75% of our sellers sign up for our "full service" listing.  With our full service flat fee mls listing, you get the same great service from offer through closing any top producing Realtor gives you!  Sacrifice nothing & gain everything.

In the by for sale by owner,  Detroit, Flat Fee MLS Michigan MLS ®, the listing agreement between the real estate broker and the property owner typically requires the broker to enter the property into the MLS and provide other contracted services, with the broker acting as what the traditional industry has coined a "limited service broker". 

A Flat Fee MLS broker like Kermath Realty does not automatically entail "limited service". Kermath Realty is a full-service Detroit Flat Fee MLS Michigan broker. We list properties under a full-service agreements but charge a "flat rate" that is not a percentage of the sales price.

Michigan For Sale By Owner Flat Fee MLS ( Multiple Listing Service) is no different from traditional real estate brokerage services. Because the MLS requires a listing agreement between a real estate broker and property owner, the rapid explosion of discount flat fee mls service providers has created a gap in the States developing laws governing flat fee services provided by real estate broker.
