Walter - the toppic of the Sherman Antitrust laws ...and the fact that many agents online trample all over them is a topic that is often diiscussed here on trulia and on other RE sites.
It is a shame that so many agents are ignorant on this subject.
Thanks for trying to shine a light on this with your post.
@ Joanne- you decided to resurrect a 2.5 year old question with an answer that is terrible!
Yes, - inappropriate and terrible.
Well...........In one sentence you state "yes, all commissons are negotiable" then you march along and state what you believe to be the "standard or acceptable"commission!!!
Do you not see the conflict there?
I respectfully suggest you reread Walter's response, along with the reply I left for you.
I then suggest you delete your response as it can readily be seen as an attempt to set/fix prices even if that wasn't your intent.
ps Yes, Jim - I am always amazed when agents either don't bother to read what has been posted before they respond, or worse yet, they read it, and don't understand...... or don't care!
