What is a Zestimate®?
The Zestimate home valuation is Zillow's estimated market value for a home, computed using a proprietary formula. It is a starting point in determining a home's value and is not an official appraisal. The Zestimate is calculated from public and user-submitted data. Updating your home facts can help make your Zestimate more accurate. Learn more
Other ways to find out the value of your home
Zestimates are intended as a useful starting point to help you determine an independent and unbiased assessment of what your home might be worth in today's market. Comparing your home to recently sold properties can also help you understand what your home is worth. Additionally, your real estate agent or appraiser will physically inspect the home and take into account special features, location and market conditions.

Flat Fee MLS - Edward Cambas is a Lic. Real Estate Broker. $49
This is a concept where you elect to pay a fee upfront to be listed on the MLS. Next you would choose the commission amount you would be willing to pay the buyer's agent (Example 3%). You are basically eliminating the seller's side of the commission by doing some of the work and negotiation yourself. The MLS is the driving force to get Realtors to show and sell your home. They still get the same commission amount that they would in a traditional listing. You will work directly with the buyer's agent in negotiating and consumating the sale. You save around 50% because you eliminate the seller's commission.
If you need more help, we can do that too. Edward Cambas is a Lic. Real Estate Broker and has been in the industry since 1986. I can help by answering any general questions for free, and we can also work out an arrangement for assisting with the contract and or attending the closing if you like. Let me guide you through this experience and make everything as simple as possible.
3.Pay 3% Commission if and only if the property sells at agreed price.
4.Deal direct with the Real Estate Agents
5.You control your property and what you want to do.
6.You show the property on your schedule.
Edward E. Cambas has been providing flat fee mls services since 1992. We were the first company in the state of Florida and possibly nationwide to provide these types of services. It is very important that you the seller stay completely in control of the sale of your property.

Background information on listing flat fee MLS
My home is listed with your MLS flat fee service. A real estate agent asked me, “Who is the broker for your listing”?
My home is in Weston, part of Miami Dade. If I sign up for your MLS ADDvantage program, will I be self represented?
What does self representation mean?
I am considering selling a home in Tampa and I want to use Professional ADDvantage™ program. If I use this flat fee MLS program, will I be self represented?
I live in Miami Dade. What do I say if a Realtor or agent asks, “What is the commission”?
Why use the term, “My broker is offering”?
What is a “co broke”?
A Realtor told me that if I list flat fee in the MLS, other full service Realtors wouldn't show my property. Is this true?
What do full service Realtors think about flat fee MLS companies in Tampa?
What's different about the ADDvantage brand of flat fee MLS?
How can other flat fee MLS companies in Florida manage their multiple listings without sophisticated software?
That's an easy question. They can't. 95% will just give “bad service”. Some have software but most do it the old fashioned way…emails, faxes and unanswered phone calls.
Why is ADDvantage software better?

Edward Cambas has Flat Fee MLS starting at $49 see more at www.edwardcambas.com
In 1992, Edward Cambas started this process of Flat-Fee Listings as a Lic. Real Estate Broker in Tampa, Florida. Mr. Cambas worked at Buy Owner in Tampa which was a large Real Estate advertising company including having their own television show on Sundays. The "Buy Owner" concept was to pay a fee up-front to go into the magazine and on television while the homeowner fielded their own calls, worked their own contracts, and were responsible for the entire process and sellers would also be able to continue to market on their own in an attempt to find a buyer who is willing, ready and or able to purchase the property.
A Flat-fee listing on the MLS would provide the seller with a listing just like any other listing with the difference being they maintained freedom to sell on their own and had to deal directly with inquiring agents all the way through contract and closing. At first, there was an uprising by full service Real Estate companies because this service would surely cut their ability to monopolize the MLS and the ability to get Exclusive Right of Sale Listings where no matter what they would get a commission. The FTC eventually stepped in and ruled that the Flat-fee model be able to remain in place because it gave the home sellers another option which would save them money and introduce more competition to the marketplace.
Whipping your place into its most marketable shape might land you abuyer with a dream offer. And it might all spring from a terrific open house—the kind where every attendee is entranced, the hors d’oeuvres are delicious, and nothing remotely goes wrong.
You don’t have to hire a pro home stager and rent all new furniture to get the look buyers love. We asked agents and home staging experts for their secret staging hacks. Here are nine little moves that have a great impact for minimal effort or money.
1. Strip the windows
“Light and bright is what sells,” says Randy Wine, a real estate agent in Rutherford, NJ. So pack away your curtains. “They might be beautiful, but they’ll darken and date the room. You can leave the sheers, but take down the drapes.”
Pull the blinds all the way up. “If blinds are left in the down but open position, that can reduce light by 50% over the course of the day,” says Justin M. Riordan, founder of Spade and Archer Design Agency in Portland, OR. And make sure your windows are sparkling clean; they let in more light and just look nicer, too.
2. White-out the bathroom
Just as hotels use white items to reinforce the idea that they’re clean, white in the bathroom makes things look fresh and new.
“Even if you can’t replace cabinets or countertops, at least purchase fresh white towels,” says Sheila Schostok of Your Home Matters Staging & Redesign in Lake County, IL. And add a white shower curtain, white soap dish, and new white bathmat (though, if your bathroom floor is a selling point, skip the bathmat).
3. Update kitchen fixtures
You don’t need to replace the countertops or even paint to give your kitchen an update. The solution is simpler and cheaper.
Please, Mr. Postman
Send me news, tips, and promos from realtor.com® and Move.
“Replacing an old light fixture with a nice modern one from Home Depot can do a lot to improve the look of your kitchen,” says Wine.
If your drawer pulls and cabinet knobs look dated, swap them out for the style and finish that’s most sought-after in your area, whether that’s brushed nickel or polished brass—ask your broker what’s hot.
4. Flip every switch
Lighting up the house by turning on every lamp and overhead light will make prospective buyers confident that you have nothing to hide. Remember, you’re not trying to create “atmosphere” like you would at a dinner party—you’re showcasing a product for sale. Place floor lamps in dark corners. “An inexpensive, high-intensity floor lamp directed at the ceiling can do a lot to make a room look bigger and brighter,” says Wine.
5. Replace wall art with mirrors
Whether your walls feature fine art or family photos, swap those personal pieces out for a large mirror on one or two key walls. Since people’s taste in art varies a lot, you should hide prominent paintings or art photographs unless you are confident they have broad appeal.
“Mirrors have the advantage of maximizing light to make rooms look bigger and brighter,” says Wine. If you have a nice backyard, try placing a mirror on the wall across from the window that looks out on the yard, so the greenery will be reflected and visible from multiple angles in the room.
6. Roll up rugs
Hardwood floors are a major selling point for most buyers, and a rug that’s even slightly stained or tattered is a turn-off. So don’t hide wood floors, unless they’re a mess or your rugs are classic and pristine. Always remove area rugs from your kitchen, because the room will feel cleaner and more spacious without them.
7. Swap out lampshades
To make a room look more light, clean, and modern, replace any old lampshades for new white drum shades, which are cheap and readily available at Ikea and Target.
8. Set the table
Elaborate table settings can have an overly staged look, but if your dining room table has seen better days or the room could use some livening up, set the table with simple modern place settings from CB2 or Bed Bath & Beyond. Go for modern white plates, sleek stainless-steel cutlery, and stemless wine glasses atop neutral-hued place mats or a tablecloth. If the room could use a touch of color, add vibrant napkins.
9. Add a metallic accent
Making a room look more luxurious and contemporary is as easy as adding a metallic accessory or two—like a silver leather throw pillow, a bronze side table or garden stool, or a copper tray.
“Metallics add visual appeal, but they’re less controversial than color,” says Wine. “They’re like glamorous neutrals.”
