Things you can get for a flat fee

I offer flat fee MLS listings - and was just curious about the other types of things you can get for a flat fee. So I did a google search and this is what i came up with :)

1 - flat fee mls - i like this one
2 - no nonsense divorce -for as little as $800
3 - tax resolution
4 - more mls
5 - graphic design
bookkeeping, loans, and the list goes on and on!

Wikipedia definition: A flat fee, also referred to as a flat rate or a linear rate, refers to a pricing structure that charges a single fixed fee for a service, regardless of usage. Rarely, it may refer to a rate that does not vary with usage or time of use. Another term used is "flate", a hybrid of "flat" and "rate".

The most surprising part for me was that by and large most of the postings were for mls listings.  I was more surprised to learn that the US Dept. of Justice Antitrust Division announced the launch of a new web site  to educate consumers and policymakers about the potential benefits that competition can bring to consumers of real estate brokerage services and the barriers that inhibit that competition.  Among other findings, they report that new sales models can reduce consumer home sales costs by thousands of dollars.   Here is the website Competition and Real Estate, includes a link to the real estate laws of each U.S. state and how they support or inhibit real estate brokerage competition.
