Default Selling our home ...MLS vs. TV

We are selling our designer in Mallory. Should we use TV properties or MLS ?

Many. Many. Threads on this in search, above. And as many opinions as there are readers on this forum.

Here is a link to search on the subject;

Pluses and minuses with both but I prefer MLS and a seller's agent.

Interview a couple form each side. Find someone you trust and can relate to.

Hearsay, but from very reliable sources . . .

The Villages pushes to sell new first, before a resale.
Their contract is so tight it squeaks and doesn't give you any wiggle room; you must agree to their terms and conditions exactly and most of the contract favors them, not you.

I won't go into the horror story a neighbor had with them.
To me what is unethical is that they can show listings from MLS Realtors but don't and won't.

We listed our home with TV. It was located near Lopez and just was not shown byTV. While they still had the listing, we had open houses on our own. The house sold on 3rd day! We still had to pay the commission.

not true.... the REALTORS have 45% + of the market and we sell just as fast as the The Villages. Their market propaganda is false we sell for much the same price and the same days on market as The villagers and we represent you, as they do not. Check out 2017 Sales by Realtors in The Villages for sales and selling times.

Remember we, MLS Agents, work for you the seller not the developer. We do not sell new construction. Selling your home is our main goal.

MLS exposes your home on every website that the public searches with the exception of TV. If you find a home listed by TV you will find that it is listed on the Realtor Websites as not for sale. The MLS Realtors only sell resale homes in TV, they are experts and very hard working. The MLS Realtors can provide true, verifiable statistics of their track record. They do not sell New Construction. Your home is never getting conflicting exposure from your agent with the New Construction and you will actually get Seller Representation to protect your interests.
