Many of the comments made regarding commission should well be considered. However, comments made regarding the uniformity of commissions may be contradictory to the law as commissions are not "pretty uniform" and there is no "market-rate commission". BY LAW commissions are negotiable.

Now there is an interesting thought. The top seller with the lowest rates. Patti how about looking for an agent that will give you the greatest return. When it's all said in done isn't that what's important to you. I've closed several transactions just in October with many happy clients. And I've never been the agent with the lowest rates and I probably won't ever be.

I'd be more than happy to discuss it with you, but just so you know you won't be getting the cheapest but you will be getting results. Hope this helps

Hello Patti,

I lived in Greenfield for 20 years and sold my own home before I became a real estate agent. I'd be honored to help you market your property.

Something to consider: is the right agent for you someone with many clients, or someone who will offer service that exceeds your expectations?

Hi Patty

I'm an agent with Albert Anthony Real Estate. Our main office is in Greenfield and I live here myself. I have a rental property in the neighborhood and have sold a few for other people, so I know this market very well. If you're serious about selling, I'd love to help. You'll find my contact info in my profile.

Depending on the size & type of property, you'll probably find that the commissions quoted by agents will be pretty uniform. The previous posters here are correct--you'll get what you pay for. That is, if you employ someone hungry enough to give you a discounted rate, you'll have someone representing you who can't even negotiate a market-rate commission for themselves; is that really the person you want handling this transaction?

Market conditions in my area would justify a seller paying a bonus instead of going cheap. You will not get the best when cutting fees, the best know what they are worth and how much work is required to get a good price. Lots of info on my blog, the link it below, hope it is helpful,
