  1. What is MLS?
    • MLS (Multiple Listing Service) is the most comprehensive computerized database of homes for sale with over 1.5 million listings nationwide. This database is used by Realtors to market and promote their own listings and to cooperate with other Realtors. Realtors, in turn, are compensated with part of the commission. The majority of real estate transactions are a result of direct MLS exposure. As members of the MLS, Thread Real Estate is making this "prized possession" available to home Sellers for a fraction of the cost! By having your home in MLS, it will be exposed to thousands of local real estate agents who otherwise would not have known that your property was for sale and would not have shown it.

  2. How long will my listing be displayed?
    • The listing will expire 1 year from the date of the payment received.

  3. Will other Realtors show my home to their prospects?
    • Yes. Since a commission is being offered on the MLS, Realtors will show your home. The Realtor is getting the same amount of commission that a full service Realtor would be offering to bring a buyer.

      Example: Breaking down a 6% commission, usally the Listing Broker gets 3-4% and the Buyers Broker gets the rest. Since Thread Real Estate is the listing broker and only charges a flat fee instead of 3-4%, you will end up paying only the Buyers' Broker a commission (e.g. 2%).

  4. May the Seller define the Buyers' broker's commission rate?
    • Yes, the Seller defines the comission rate. The suggested rates are 2% or 2.5% of sale price.

  5. In what situation is the Seller obligated to pay commission?
    • The Seller pays a commission only if a licensed agent brings the Buyer to the home through a showing, the Buyer submits an offer with the assistance of a licensed agent, or if the Buyer has an exclusive Buyer's representation agreement with a licensed agent.

  6. May the Buyer contact the Seller directly after a Realtor shows the home to him/her?
    • Yes; however, the Seller is still obligated to pay a commission to the Realtor who showed the home.

  7. If the Seller receives 2 offers, 1 from a Realtor-assisted Buyer and 1 not, must the Seller accept the offer from the Realtor-assisted buyer?
    • No, the Seller can accept or reject any offer from anyone.

  8. May the Seller continue to advertise as a FSBO?
    • Yes, the Seller is free to advertise (e.g. newspapers), hold open houses, and/or do anything that he/she wants to help sell his/her home.

  9. By participating in this program, does the Seller enter into an exclusive listing agreement with Thread Real Estate?
    • Yes, the Seller enters into an exclusive Facilitation listing agreement with Thread Real Estate.

  10. What are the rules regarding cancellation of listing agreement?
    • The Seller may void the listing agreement at any time with the exception of during the time that an offer is being procured, negotiated or agreed upon.

  11. What type of rules must the Seller abide by when selling through this program?

  12. Who is eligible for this program?
    • Anyone who has a home to sell in Massachusetts that is not currently listed in MLS. Thread Real Estate reserves the right to refuse acceptance of any listing.

  13. Can I have my direct contact information show on the MLS listing or other Partner sites?
    • The seller's primary phone number will be put in a designated location where Agents can view and obtain contact information for property viewings; however this phone number is not available publicly.

  14. Do MLS "partner" sites show all data entered into MLS?
    • Not necessarily. MLS "partner" sites display data at their discretion. Thread Real Estate does not guarantee the reliability or presentation of the data on any MLS "Partner" sites.
