Welcome to The Ohio Property Group, LLC, also known as OhioMLSFlatFee.com and Ohio Virtual Realty, LLC (collectively referred to as “we,” “us,” or “our”). By using our website and services, you agree to the following Terms of Service (“Terms”):
- Description of Services: We offer MLS listings in Ohio, and sellers can sign up for various listing packages. The purpose of this website is to help our clients and customers access top-quality real estate services through a model which is an alternative to the traditional or “6%” model. We provide real estate services and education to all–some for a fee and some at no charge. If listing services are purchased, we generate a listing profile in one or more Ohio MLS systems, depending on the property location. All sellers must enter into a listing agreement with us. We may provide additional consulting services for pricing, offer negotiation/review, contingency troubleshooting, document review, transaction management, and other services which may or may not require an additional quoted upfront fee. We will never charge a fee that is not disclosed beforehand.
- Payment Terms: All listing packages and optional products are paid for via online payment methods, including PayPal, Stripe, and debit/credit card processing. Fees are quoted upfront and must be paid at the outset of service commencement.
- User Obligations: All real estate services requiring a license must pertain to Ohio real estate. Users must have the legal capacity to execute listing agreements, property disclosures, lead paint disclosures (if applicable), purchase agreements, and deeds for property transfer. Users must not list properties if they have an equitable interest or enter into an assignment purchase agreement intending to use our services to find another buyer before purchasing the property. Users may only assist true property owners without collecting fees. To collect a fee for assisting the seller requires an active real estate license in Ohio. All other products and services which do not require a license, whether physical or digital products are intended for their stated use.
