As of 8/1/2018, we have lowered the price of this add-on from $50.00 to $25.00.
This add-on service is used if you want to let Agents know that you are increasing the original offered sales commission amount. If your property has been on the market for a couple of weeks there’s a good chance that Buyer Agents have noticed the original commission amount being offered at the time of activation. Unlike price changes, when we edit the sales commission amount MLS does not send out a notification to Agents. In order to notify them, we will compose a message through the system and send it to Agents who are working with prospective buyers who have seen your home online. You should really only increase the commission amount if you are below the average commission offering for your town. If you’re unsure, send us a message and we will tell you what agents expect in your town.
Would you like your Cape Code listing displayed on the Cape Cod & Islands MLS? This service is only for current active MLSPIN listings. Per the rules of CCIMLS, your listing must be on MLSPIN before they will allow your property to be on CCIMLS. For $350 we can have CCIMLS manually list your property under our real estate brand. Once payment is made we will send you a copy of their Cape & Islands Property Data Input form in pdf format. You will need to fill this form out and send it back to us so we can prepare a Listing Package for the CCIMLS staff. They have specific guidelines we need to follow to ensure listings are activated in a timely manner.
Getting your property listed on the Cape & Islands MLS is not instant. We have a reciprocal partnership with CCIMLS. This means we provide their small staff with a Listing Package which includes: 1) CCIMLS administrative fee. We pay them to manually list the property on their system. 2) A copy of your current MLSPIN listing. 3) A copy the listing agreement between you, the seller and our brokerage. 4) A letter of good standing from our local Realtor board. 5) A signed document stating we will abide by their rules and regulations. 6) A Cape Cod property data input form so they can enter the listing into the Cape & Islands MLS system.
Reverse Prospecting Campaign #1
Reverse Prospecting Campaigns Campaign #1 MLS to all Agents who are working with active buyers. This is called Reverse Prospecting in the real estate world. These are actual consumers (buying) who have told their agent to set them up on the MLS system with specific criteria. Each day these people receive new matches. If your home fits the criteria and the agent is accepting ‘reverse prospecting’ emails, then they will receive this email. To break it down further, we are especially, contacting the Agents who have qualified customers, rather than waiting for them to contact you. If purchasing this service, you, the seller, must provide us with an email to send out to these agents. Since we are sending this message through the MLS system, we will not be able to provide you with email addresses. The number of prospects changes daily. When creating your email you should be concise and it’s best to not make yourself look desperate. If your email is long-winded, it will not be read. We receive reverse prospecting emails all the time and the only ones we will read are the short ones. Agents get a ton of email, so help them out by keeping it short and to the point.
Disclaimer: We will send out 1 email message to all agents who accept reverse prospecting emails during this campaign. Since we send this message through MLS, we are not able to provide you with agent email addresses or contact information. We will not send SPAM advertisements or anything gimmicky. Hillman Real Estate does not guarantee more calls, showings and or interest in your property.
Reverse Prospecting Campaign #2 does all everything that Campaign # 1 does. Additionally, we will also compile a list of all the mailing addresses of the Agents who have buyers so you can send out information to each agent via postal mail. Price: $100.00.

This is for sellers who have either a detached condo or an attached single family home. We create a 2nd listing (2 MLS #’s) so your property shows up under the Condo and Single Family Categories. This add-on allows you to hit a larger demographic. If you order this add-on product, and we don’t feel this strategy will be beneficial, we will void the transaction. We believe in having a sound strategy.
We know perception matters. In order to bring your property to the next level, we are extending the Hillman brand to all our sellers. Our newly designed customizable for sale signs offer a fresh attention-grabbing look. Each sign is made right here in New England. Our partner prints on the highest quality materials and utilizes the most advanced printing equipment available. Our signs are double-sided, made of quality corrugated plastic coated with polyurethane to ensure weather resistance. All signs come with a lawn stake, jumbo permanent blue marker and a set of 3″ numerical stencils. All you need to do is add your phone number. Priority shipping ($7.25) is included.
Per the rules of MLS you may not use any sign that says: FSBO, FOR SALE BY OWNER, BY OWNER or any sign that will confuse consumers or agents alike. Technically speaking, once a property is listed on MLS, the property is no longer considered a “for sale by owner.”
