What is a Mere Posting?
According to the Canadian Real Estate Association, a “MERE posting” is a listing on a board or real estate association’s MLS system in respect of which the Member (Realtor) has chosen or agreed not to provide services to the Seller other than submitting the listing for posting on the Board’s MLS System.
According to the agreement, a listing Realtor/Brokerage must act as agent for the seller to post, amend or remove a property listing in a Board’s MLS System. However, the nature of any additional services to be provided by the listing Realtor/Brokerage to the seller is determined by agreement between the listing Realtor/Brokerage and the seller.
In simple language, a mere posting is a property listing that is for sale by owner but advertised on Realtor.ca on behalf of the private seller via a listing on a Board’s MLS System. It is listed for a flat fee and is free of any traditional realtor commissions.
This means you can opt-in for a flat fee MERE posting and opt-out for having a real estate agent represent your interests in dealing with any prospective buyers, agents or any transaction that may result.
