Help the community by answering this question:



I think the confusion is that you might have intended to list your question about Long Island, New York. Not Sacramento, CA.

Is this correct?

Interview a bunch of areas and see what realtors are offering. If you are a seller then see what they are offering for their commission and take it from there.

Hope this helps.

You are asking about the Long Island area. That's a long way from Sacramento. Is this misposted?

In any case, commissions are negotiable as Paula has stated. You can expect that, if you are listing a property, you might want to conside the efforts involved in the transaction, as well as the range that others might be paying in considering what commission rate to offer. Sometimes land is different than a building, commercial different than residential...there is no set rate.

Hi Mickey!
The short answer is that all commissions are negotiable. I wish I could give you a range, but even that might be considered "price fixing"...a huge no-no. I would suggest that you call a few agents in your area and ask them what percentage they expect to receive for their commissions. After a few answers, you should have a pretty good idea of the norm. Good luck!
