I work for a 100% commission brokerage. Advertising a lower commission rate works well for me. I would rather have more listings at a lower commission than less at a higher rate. I keep busy and I work with many different people which has turned into many referrals. Although, when I work for a lower commission, I take the lesser part of the cut. I know it should not happen, but I do not want to take a chance that a buyer's agent will skip my listing because of the commission. I may give a discount commission but I am very clear, that is where the discount ends. My service, professionalism or marketing strategy is not discount quality. I am trying to benefit both myself and my client. Face it, we all have to make a living and save where we can. Real estate is not hopping 12 months out of the year, we have our slow season and this helps me through. ... more

Please be advised that I have manually deleted the wrong contact information of the property listing. Please also edit your Trulia profile and input your phone number so it will appear on your property listing page. Please follow the instructions below.

1. Log in to your Trulia profile
2. Hover your mouse to your name located at the upper right corner of the page and click Profile
3. Input your phone number and click Save

Once you updated your phone number on your Trulia profile, it will automatically appear on your listing page after 24 to 48 hours.

Thank you for using Trulia!

UpNest Top Realtors answered:
Commission rates are negotiable and can vary. The key to negotiating the best rate is to compare and interview several agents in your local area. We started UpNest ( to help you compare top agents that compete to earn your business. Since agents compete for you, they offer their very best rates and services. You'll also get to ""comparison shop"" like you do for all the other things you usually pay for. It's free and there's no risk to try us out, Good luck!

You can also find out the average commission rate for your area here:

Mary answered:

I apologize if you experienced any inconvenience or frustration with editing your for sale by owner listing and I am happy to help take care of your concern.

As a general reference, Trulia does not have a central platform to post/edit listings. Instead, listings are sent to us through a variety of feed sources such as partners, brokers, agents, third-party feed providers, or directly from an MLS.

Your listing, specifically, is being sent to us from Zillow, which is our partner site that sends us listings. Here is a link to your Zillow listing:

Any changes you are requesting to your listing on Trulia will need to be updated at the source, Zillow. Here is a helpful link on how to edit your Zillow listing:

Your changes will automatically update to Trulia within 24 hours.

Thank you for using Trulia!
