Commissions 


First question comes in mind of every seller, how much will be the commission of realtor. When we receive calls from people, first they ask for commission then they want to talk about everything else.

Truth / Facts About Commissions for Home Sellers:


There is no fixed commission rate or set rate and it is not legal to fix the rate, but total commission rates charged typically, vary from 2.5% to 3.5%. But, sometimes, it might range up to 5% or higher depending on house values and type of services included in the package. As a standard practice, buyer’s agent receives a commission of 2% to 2.5%, and the balance is paid to the listing brokerage.
Are Commissions Negotiable?
Have you come across marketing advertisements claiming “maximum 2.5%” or “all this for “1% commission” or discount brokers claiming to list for $999? Or even few advertisements claiming “0% commission. Can you really believe these claims? Often these claims are only “a half truth” as they are either attach sting to offer or only referring to one half of the commission, specifically, the listing side of the commission. In real estate transaction, you are required to pay both selling side and well as buying side agent commission. Typically, Listing Commission is lowered only when you agree to buy your next home through the same agent or broker or you must buy one of their own listings (less choice for you) or the listing broker must list and also sell your home to a buyer themselves (not too frequent). You must read the fine print of the advertisement very carefully and consider the services you will receive in lieu of a lower commission rate. These ads can be somewhat confusing at times, so please do your due diligence before signing any listing agreement.

How much We Charge


Our standard charge is 1% for selling your property. But you will be required to pay additional 2.5% to buyer agent. Hence a total commission charged shall be 3.5%. For services, like staging, pre-inspection or any other repair will provide details of qualified personals whom you can pay directly by yourself. However, if you are constrained with time or do not want to deal with service providers or constrained with money, we can get the things done on your behalf. We can add these costs to our commission and can be paid upon selling your property.
