Flat-fee real estate agents…I need your help!

In Freakonomics, we wrote about my research with Chad Syverson which looked at how real estate agents did when they sold their own houses versus those of their clients. You can read the original academic paper here.

Now we’ve got a new paper idea on real estate, but we need some help from real-estate agents/brokers — especially ones that either themselves provide a flat-fee service for clients wanting to list a house on MLS, or know a lot about such services. Please spread the word.

If you fit the bill and want to help us, I think you might have some fun and possibly get a great marketing tool for your business. Please email me at
