Hi, 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:

I would suggest that you pick up the phone and call a couple local realtors and interview them.

This something you should be discussing with your Realtor. If you feel that you can't trust what they are telling you I would consult with a real estate attorney.

Hello Moon,
Sorry for you are experiencing these difficulties.

My suggestion is to speak to an agent who is local to your market - preferably several agents.

Advantages of using a professional:
1. An agent can present a strategy for getting your home sold quickly.
2. An agent can give you the marketing muscle you need in this very difficult, price-driven environment.
3. And, as others have offered, an agent can suggest things you can do to stage your home.

Price is critical. Price brings buyers to look. Staging is what sells your home.

I do appreciate that you're driving a lot of energy into job searching. The hunt is a full-time job and you may need to dash out the door instead of vacuuming before heading out. This is all the more reason to move your property quickly. The situation you are in can be exhausting. I urge you to hire an agent as soon as possible. Give your home selling project a full-court press and put it behind you.

Final note: Make sure the agent is a good communicator - someone you are comfortable with.

Best to you,
of Longmont, CO
