For your information, realtors are prohibited from discussing commissions it is in violation of NYS licensing law.
If you are interested in selling your home, please call me at 518-307-1985. I am a life-long resident of your area and have been a realtor for over 20 years. I look forward to speaking with you.
As Anna and Jim already made very valid comments regarding discussions of commission and splits, I won't reiterate those items this morning. It's just not a topic for public forum.
Instead, I would like to add that I am a Saratoga county resident and proactive, full time Realtor with Keller Williams. I also lived specifically in the Gansevoort/Wilton area for nearly 10 years.
If you are interested in arranging a meeting with me to discuss selling your home, what to expect for your commission dollars, as well as all that goes along with employing a full service brokerage vs discount broker, I'd be happy to set a day and time with you so we can get better acquainted.
Our local market is really energized quite early this spring due to lack of snow this winter. Let's capitalize on that momentum and together we will evaluate your needs, your home's accurate value in today's market, define the marketing plan I provide my clients (each agent is quite different in that respect), discuss the ever popular commission questions and, ultimately, get your home sold.
Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to your call.
Keller Williams Realty
Common question for a seller to ask. The real underlying concern is usually what you net at the closing, not what you pay to get the net.
Sometimes a seller just wants to be able to brag to his buddies that he beat an agent up and got the cheapest listing commission. If the amount you net is more important, then often times you discover that going the cheap route doesn't make the most sense.
What services are you getting? What marketing program is being laid out? Does it seem like it will get the job done?
We can't discuss commissions in a public forum, by law.
Regarding the split between agents: it doesn't have to be evenly split. So a co-broke of X does not mean for sure that the total is 2X.
Listing agent may keep more on that side to offset marketing costs, or offer the larger part to help entice another agent to sell it, even if he has negotiated a reduced fee and doesn't have as much to work with. (Also can't afford to do as much in that case, but everyone has to make their own choices as to what is best)
All the Best,
