Use Open Listings to Get Listings,
Get Buyer Leads,
and Grow your Business.

We've implemented one of our most-requested features for our members: Open Listings!

In real estate sales and rentals, an open listing is a type of listing agreement where the seller is only obligated to pay the agent's commission when the agent brings the buyer. In contrast to an exclusive agreement where the agent earns commission regardless of who brings the buyer.

Remember to share your open listings on social media for maximum results.

Watch Dawn Pfaff, president and founder of My State MLS explain how Open Listings work with My State MLS.

So Why Should You Want to Use Open Listings?

Agents across the country have used open listings for years to gain buyer and seller leads, advertise themselves, and grow their businesses. Especially new agents just starting out.

Instead of buying leads or trying to find sellers and buyers through their limited sphere of influence, many agents have had success contacting rental property owners and managers and offer to open list their homes to rent to renters. Additionally you can use open listings to incentivize FSBO owners to give your company a try, convince builders and new condo opportunities to allow you to list properties, and much more. Open listings are easy to get because there is no obligation for the owner to pay a commission to the agent UNLESS the the agent can prove they brought the buyer. Plus, the landlord gets free advertising for their property. Of course, the agent wants to get paid so finding a buyer/renter and getting paid for it is one goal, BUT the real value of the open listing are the leads. The following is an example of how it works all over the country with My State MLS:

A customer of over 10 years of My State MLS was able to get a rental listing from a local developer with a new multifamily. She entered the apartment as a rental listing in and within three days she had over 125 leads. "Not all of those leads were just renters,", she commented. "Many were buyers that just couldn't find a place to buy." So, she rented to one of the leads, but she had 124 more leads to help them find a property to rent or buy. Some of those leads were also SELLERS because they had to sell their house and move to a rental. With that single open listing, our customer represented 3 new buyers in their home search, got 1 additional listing from those leads, and started a relationship with a major local developer that turned into more deals over the next 6 months.
