Yes, commissions are always negotiable between you and your agent, there are no set standards; therefore choose your agent with care and not by commission alone...

The seller can ALWAYS negotiate the sales commission, but as the market goes up, it may be harder to get a better commission than when things were stagnant. On the other hand, as prices go up, agents may have more room to flex. Shop around, but remember...lowest price is not always best buy!!

As a seller, anything over 500K I just offer a straight 20K instead of 5%. Never been turned down by an agent.
