If anyone here or anywhere else gives you commission rate, it is against the law~!
There is no specific commission rate, all commissions are negotiable. Discuss the % of commission with the Realtor you are asking for a market evaluation and you are considering to be your listing agent...
As a general rule, commissions are different for different reasons, but all are negotiable, and the services that each individual Realtor and his/her brokerage provide for a specific property also is
different as their may be more required for one property than for another depending on type, size and location or any other relevant reasons.
Jason below should not have mentioned any specific %, since all commissions are negotiable....
Select the Realtor/Listing Agent you trust, who is straightforward and honest with you about the value of your home, what you should do to well prepare your home, as his/her input before even putting the home on the market can make a huge difference as can the quality of photos of your home as they appear in brochures, fliers and the various internet sites.
