Agent Commissions

Why Pay commission when selling your home

First, commissions rates between homeowners and agents are negotiable.  Quite often the percentage ends up at 3% for the listing agent and 3% going to the agent that represents a buyer in the transaction.

So why should you pay someone percentage of the property when it sells? If you are considering selling your home, it is important to understand that;

  • Our agents will set a competitive price which increases your chances of getting a quick sale and more money
