Sellers are normally hit up for 6% by Realtors as the going rate, Nationally. Same in Minnesota. Same in Oregon. Same in Houston. However, there are many companies that can do the Listing for you for MUCH LESS.
Some will list for as little as 1% to put your home in the Multiple Listing Service so all Agents and Buyers can look it up online and avoid feeling like they're taking their chances on some sketchy Seller doing a FSBO.
Listing Agents RARELY do Showings of the property for sale. The Buyer Agent usually does that. They just need the lockbox code in a timely fashion. THEY will want some Commission and you can offer whatever amount you like to make it compelling for them to bring a buyer to you.
If you need to be told what to ask for the property and what to take when an offer is made, then maybe you should pay 6% to a Listing Agent.
If you can make your own decisions, I'd ask them what, exactly, they DO for that money, because I find they have no idea how to make a Home Book with good photos, nor did they do anything Legally or otherwise that wasn't obvious.
IF you need help with the Contracts, the Listing Agent can do that for 1%, since they really don't DO hardly anything but look for Buyers and Sellers all day.
6% is absurd. Before Technology, it made sense to have someone who knew the area and had access to the information you needed to find the right place for you, or to get the word out that your house is for sale. That time is over. It's now verging on a scam.
