Charging $50,000 to Sell a $1,000,000 Home Is Ridiculous.
Are you considering paying a real estate agent $50,000 for a job that will last about six weeks, which is about the same amount of money the average engineer would earn working eight to ten hours a day for six months?
As an independent real estate broker, I give the homeowner the commission that I would have to pay an agent to sell your home. The agent’s commission now stays in your pocket where it belongs.
I can charge a 1% listing fee and make about the same amount of money I did managing a large, expensive office with agents. Since I don’t have to spend my time managing agents and dealing with a huge overhead, I have the time to give my clients better service while saving them money. My advertising costs have gone way down because I get so many referrals from clients who are anxious to tell all their friends about how much money they saved.
Real Estate Commissions in California Are Negotiable by Law:
Why are Realtors® not disclosing to you that real estate commissions in California are negotiable by law? The answer is simple, brokers don’t want to disclose this fact, because they need to make as much money as possible to keep their business going.
Retail brokers need to provide agents telephones, insurance, secretaries, attorneys, workers' comp, etc. They need to put on a successful appearance to retain existing agents and attract new agents who can bring a constant flow of new buyers and sellers to the broker’s company.
The Wall Street Journal reports that The Federal Trade Commission has already started an investigation into real estate commissions. This investigation will result in real estate commission regulations, making them fair to home sellers.
