Mountain Lake Realty Announces Flat Fee Service
A local Scottsdale realty company is explaining how their unique flat-rate structure can save homeowners thousands of dollars in commissions.

Scottsdale, AZ – August 28, 2021 – Mountain Lake Realty, located in Scottsdale, AZ, is announcing a new, more affordable way for homeowners to sell their homes.

The first thing home sellers need to understand is how commissions normally work. Homeowners usually pay a 5% to 6% fee to realtors when they sell their homes.  3% percent is commonly paid to the seller’s realtor and an additional 3% is paid to the buyer’s realtor.  If a home costs $300,000 this works out to paying up to $18K in realtor’s fees.  

In contrast, Mountain Lake Realty is a flat fee realtor that charges homeowners only a flat fee regardless of the selling price of the home.  The amount of the fee depends on what services the homeowner selects.  The basic cost is around $300.   It’s easy to see how much money can be saved by using a flat fee realtor.

The second part of selling a home that homeowners must understand is the Multiple Listing Service.  Commonly called the MLS, this service is a private database maintained by real estate brokers and agents.  Originally, the Multiple Listing Service was a book that was published weekly.  The Multiple Listing Service lists and describes all the properties in a particular area that are for sale.

The Multiple Listing Service is a critical part of getting a house sold.  Some reports note that 90% of all home sales come through the MLS. The Multiple Listing Service benefits both home sellers and home buyers.  Sellers receive the widest advertising exposure for their home.  Buyers get to look at all the houses available, not just the houses listed by a particular agency. 

Ordinary homeowners can’t list their homes in the MLS.  The person who puts the listing on the Multiple Listing Service has to be a member of the MLS and pay their dues and fees.  This would be the real estate broker who lists the home. Brokers can be fined if they don’t regularly update the database. 

Mountain Lake Realty is an Arizona flat fee MLSThis means that Mountain Lake Realty can list homes for sale on the Multiple Listing Service.  In this case, the home seller pays a flat fee to Mountain Lake Realty and their home shows up in the MLS database.  For the flat fee, a home seller gets maximum advertising for their home and stands a much better chance of making the sale than trying to sell it on their own.

In addition, the Multiple Listing Service is linked to many real estate websites like Zillow and In this way, homeowners can use Mountain Lake Realty for their flat fee MLS and save themselves a lot of money.
