Realtor's commissions as a general rule are not set in stone, they are negotiable. And it depends
on your home, the location, size etc. how much work will be required to market, advertise and sell
your home. I am sure you want to work with a full service brokerage, but if and when you discuss
the services with the Realtor, and you agree with the Realtor that some items of marketing and advertising you mutually agree are not that important, and the Brokerage and your Listing agent then
may agree to a particular commission. Remember that part of that commission will go to the
Agent who is bringing the buyer, and there will be only so much a brokerage and Listing agent
will be able to do.... But sit down and discuss the options...
There is not such a thing as a discount Realtor...... Just that a certain commission for a certain
property is negotiated between the parties....
If you need recommendations for a local Realtor in your area, let us know.
Always also remember you get what you are paying for.... So discuss the correct list price
and potential sale price AND THE POSSIBLE NET TO SELLER IN DETAIL WITH THE
REALTOR YOU INTEND TO HIRE AND LIST YOUR HOME WITH.
Good luck to you.
Hope this helps...
