My firm allows me to go as low as 4.5% and that is a Full Service Rate, I would advertise your home in 3 Homes magazines, all over the internet, and give tons of other services....Thanks For the good question

It would be againest NC Real Estate law to quote an average commission. Each broker and company have their own guidelines they go by and use. To say that X is the average commission in an area is misleading. You will get different types and levels of service from different brokers. It also as Sonja states will depend on your home. Your best bet is to get several local realtors to the Jacksonville area and interview them to see who will be the best fit. You should ask how they are going to market and get your home sold? What will they do to drive the buyers to your door?
Hope this helps and if you need a referral to a top agent in your area to interview just let me know.
There is no average commission, commission is determined by lots of different factors like condition of the home location and marketing needed to get the house sold. There is a big difference between listed home and sold home right now and commission is one of the factors that can make a difference. Here in New Bern I charge 5%-7%. If you need any further assistance contact me and I can recommend few really good agents in Jacksonville that will do the job for you. Sonja@suddenlink.net
