The Iowa Real Estate Savings Centers link you to REALTORS® who provide MLS Listings Fee Discounts to help you keep more of your equity at closing when selling a home or other Iowa real estate. Discount Brokers Can Make Selling a Home Less Costly.
Unfortunately, Iowa is one of 10 states that currently do not allow real estate rebates aka: Agent Commission Splits. The U.S. Department of Justice is trying to get Iowa to change it law and here is what they have to say:
Iowa law requires real estate brokers to accept and present offers and counteroffers, and answer their clients’ questions in every real estate transaction, even if consumers do not wish to buy these services. Consumers can no longer purchase and brokers can no longer offer MLS-listing-only and other à la carte services.
Iowa law prohibits consumers from receiving consumer rebates when more than one broker assists them to buy or sell property. For example, two brokers may believe that each has a specialty in particular parts of the real estate transaction and wish to divide up the work to focus on what each does best. In such a situation, the home buyer may not receive a rebate.
However, Iowa real estate savings may be available in the form or MLS Listing Fee Discounts, FSBO or Flat Fee MLS Services, and Fee for Service Realtor Plans.
You can remain anonymous while reviewing Iowa Real Estate Savings plans on the websites of Realtors and other real estate service providers if we can find them in your area of interest.
