This a great question! The typically percentage in Ohio's market place is 6%. 3% to the buyerâ€™s agent and 3% to the selling agent. Commission is negotiable. I have a program that if my seller uses me on the buying side I can reduce the cost on the listing side. Interview a few different agents and see if anyone in your area offers any incentives to use them. But keep in mind if an agent does reduce the commission that may hinder them from doing certain marketing to help get your home sold. Good Luck!
