Frequently Asked Questions

1% Full Service

Yes - not only the local MLS but hundreds of syndicated real estate sites such as Realtor.com, Zillow, Trulia, Homes.com, etc.
No. Never pay up front, pick a listing package or give a CC# up front.

The first rule in real estate is never pay for services up front. Once you pay for them, the company you paid has no enticement to get your home sold for the highest amount in the shortest time.

With iList you only pay at closing when we bring you a buyer and you get your home sold. You will never be asked for a CC# and or any other fees.
No. When you list with iList we do have a listing agreement, but it is designed to give us permission to advertise your home for sale. We have a Freedom Clause in our listing agreement that states you can cancel at any time. This allows you to market your home risk free with all of the tools and benefits of iList.
0% Commission to list is a lie. The word commission is often discussed as a Flat Fee or Transaction Fee - but do not be fooled - there is a cost to you. Having a cost associated with listing is a good thing - it is an exchange of services. Just remember to do not pick from a "List" of Services; do not pay anything up front no matter how small, and do not give a CC#.

Do look for the best cost for the best exchange of services paid only at a successfully closing. With iList - we are full service- everything is included, every time all the time.
Everything. Yes, it is that simple. When you list with iList, we do the exact same services plus more compared to a "Traditional" Agent. From MLS Marketing, Photos, Signs, Lock Boxes, Showing Service, Offer management, Contract Services all the way through closing. There is never a list from you to choose from and never any added cost – you get full service all the time, every time with iList.

Watch out for companies that make you pick from a list of services. Never be forced to pick from a "List" of services. This is the definition of a "Discount Services" brokerage. There is a difference between a lower commission vs discount services. Always choose the All Inclusive/ Full Service. This will benefit you and the parties in your transaction.
Yes - we want to make sure every listing we have on the MLS is first class and looks as good if not better than others. To do this we will give you free professional photos.

These photos are yours to keep and these are the photos we will use on the MLS.
We do. When you list with iList we have a team member go out and install your signs and electronic lockboxes. Watch out for companies that ship you lock boxes and cheap signs. Often times these type of signs make your home look “discounted” and the combo lock boxes they use are not secure.

Don't worry - a licensed agent on our team reviews every offer to ensure you are getting the best deal.

This is where you know if you listed with the right company or not. Verify how they treat offers and communication with you. Often times companies that can place your home on the MLS cheaply or for a flat fee do not have the ability or incentive to deliver offers accurately or in a timely manner.

Make sure they have technology and automation to instantly deliver your offers and the ability for you to accept, reject or counter via an offer portal.
We do. Once you accept and offer and our team reviews the offer for you, we work hand in hand with the buyer / buyer agent to draft all state contracts. Buyer always signs the contracts first so we can review them. Once reviewed we then send them to the seller for execution. Once executed we send contracts out to title, lender and buying parties. This is where the real work starts. With iList you have a team of agents watching every date and requirement on the contract to ensure all parties are moving forward. There is never an extra charge for our contract or closing services when you list with iList.
