Standard Real Estate
Negotiating the Fee
Some consumers think that the Standard Real Estate Commission is 5%*, 6%*, 7%*, 8%*, 9%* etc.
The truth is there is no standard real estate commission rate as the amount or rate of real estate commission is not fixed by law. They are set by each broker individually and may be negotiable between the Seller and Broker.
Some Sellers feel that before they sign a listing agreement they first want to Negotiate the Fee/Commission and only when they are satisfied the fee is not what they consider to be excessively HIGH will they agree to sign.
Some consumers are well aware that the real estate industry has been greatly computerized and that homes are selling in a matter of days in today's market ( 0 to 30 days ), thus they desire to receive our 1%* Full Service.
Real estate companies are free to negotiate any commission rate which they feel they are worth such as 6%*, 7%*, 8%*, 12%*, etc.
On a $500,000 home price which of the following two commission figures is larger?
The answer is neither as both figures are the same commission amount.
We understand the % vs. $ figures and that is why we not only state our 1%* Full Service Fee but we also include the actual dollar ($) amount it would cost a Seller as seen below...
Consumers have informed us that they feel that there should be a new rule passed that prior to meeting with a Seller to list a home an agent should be required to inform the Seller via email or text message not only the percentage (%) being charged but also the actual dollar amount ($) of the commission and how many days most homes are being sold in, such as:
"...I will be listing your $500,000 home today for a 6%* commission which will cost you $30,000 while 90% of all homes sold in under 2 months..."
