MLS Listing Service
Our Flat-Fee MLS Listing consists of entering your listing into the MLS system, forwarding inquiries to you, and maintaining the listing on the MLS. No other services will be provided. We perform as a Facilitator or Non-Agent and do not represent you.
We are a member of Massachusetts’ MLSPIN and New Hampshire’s NEREN MLS systems. It is your responsibility to confirm that either of these is the correct MLS for your area before placing your order. You can use Realtor.com (or similar) to confirm the correct Multiple Listing Service for the property you are listing. Visit their site and search for properties in your town. Click on a listing and scroll down the page until you see ‘Data Source’ and make sure it’s MLSPIN or NEREN before listing with us. Check a few listings to be sure. Technically we can list a property anywhere in MA or NH but agents will not see it unless they are a member of the same MLS.
Note: We are not a member of the Berkshire or Barnstable County Multiple Listing Service in MA.
The generic real estate contracts provided should be used with caution and reviewed by an attorney.
The Photographer grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license for the purpose of marketing your property for sale. This extends to the use of images on the MLS listing as well as other promotional materials intended to sell the property. In the event the property does not sell, these images may not be transferred to any other party, including subsequent listing agents. Any use of the images by a third party is strictly prohibited unless approved in writing by the Photographer.
Listing refunds will be made within 14 days of payment and ONLY if we have not yet received all the required forms and/or started to enter your property into an MLS. If after 14 days you decide you do not need our listing service for an MLS listing as described above, through no fault of ours, we will credit your account for future use.
Our scheduled home-visit services (e.g. our Home Visit – Flat Fee MLS Listing, Real Estate Photography/Video, and Hosted Open House) are non-refundable once we visit your property. Cancellations/rescheduling with more than 24-hour notice before the scheduled appointment will incur no charge. However, there will be a $50 fee if a 24-hour notice is not provided.
Signs are non-refundable.
Every photo, map, or plan you submit must have been personally purchased or taken by you. Do not submit photos found on the internet, from a previous listing, or taken by anyone else. The MLS takes this very seriously and will fine and suspend us. If you are found in violation, your listing/order will be canceled without refund and legal action will be taken to recoup damages. If you are unsure where any photo came from, do not submit it.

Real Estate Agents and Home Sellers
As real estate agents and home sellers, you play an important role in protecting the health of families purchasing and moving into your home. Buildings built before 1978 are much more likely to have lead-based paint. Federal law requires you to provide certain important information about lead paint before a prospective buyer is obligated under a contract to purchase your home.
Real estate agents must:
- Inform the seller of his or her obligations under the Real Estate Notification and Disclosure Rule. In addition, the agent is responsible if the seller or lessor fails to comply; unless the failure involves specific lead-based paint or lead-based paint hazard information that the seller or lessor did not disclose to the agent. Read the regulations that include these requirements.
- Provide, as part of the contract process, an EPA-approved information pamphlet on identifying and controlling lead-based paint hazards titled Protect Your Family From Lead In Your Home (PDF). Attach to contract, or insert language in the contract, a “Lead Warning Statement” and confirmation that you have complied with all notification requirements. Sample Seller’s Disclosure of Information English (PDF) and in Spanish (PDF).
- Provide a 10-day period to conduct a paint inspection or risk assessment for lead-based paint or lead-based paint hazards. Parties may mutually agree, in writing, to lengthen or shorten the time period for inspection. Homebuyers may waive this inspection opportunity.
