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.

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.

You will sell it much faster with TV RE... Their market is so much bigger.. I am not a fan but that it the facts.

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.

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.

bought resale from tv. took 2hrs of paperwork just to make a offer. rejected counter offer from seller. 2 weeks later seller accepted offer and had to go through the 2 hrs of paperwork all over again instead of just changing the prior dates.
on the sell side mls commision is negotiable, don't think tv negotiates, could be wrong, double check.

also have been told the tv sell contract is binding for 6 months. a lesser time period can be negotiated with normal realtors.
