Truthfully the percentage of commission is not a factor to me when I show homes. I am just trying to get the right property for my clients. I think you would be better served with offering a warranty on the home, carpet allowance, etc. to interest more buyers.
You can offer your bonus to one or both REALTORS. Just have the listing associate put it into your listing agreement.
Thank you for your question. There are many ways to look at this one my friend. The first is simply that with your offer of full price -$3,000 for buyerâ€™s closing is nice but you are not paying them.
Let me explain. Letâ€™s say for example you are asking $200,000 for your property and you are willing to â€œpayâ€ up to $3,000 toward the buyerâ€™s closing costs. This will net you $197,000while the buyer will still be financing based on the $200,000 so the buyer is actually financing their own closing costs.
Basically you have the knowledge that you are netting $197,000 so you added the $3,000 to that number. You would have better luck by just reducing the price by that amount. Also, if your home is not listed with a Realtor you may want to look into it.
