Re: Real Estate commission....is it negotiable?

No, I'm serious. An agent take the time (any idea how busy an agent is?) to take her clients to a FSBO without a fee agreement? To lose a buyer to no commission? Very fishy.

Re: Real Estate commission....is it negotiable?

What slanging match? Maybe I've missed something.

Anyway, I can't come out to play today as I have to prepare for a presentation this afternoon at a house in Truro. I work around 12 hours a day, 7...

Re: Real Estate commission....is it negotiable?

No you don't appreciate it at all, you've just ignored it. Once again, real estate agents are liable for the contracts they construct, not the lawyers. They have to check conditions are fulfilled,...

You need a more expensive lawyer. Real estate agents and brokerages are liable for the contracts they construct, not the lawyers. Commissions are split between the Buyer and Seller agents, so it...

Re: Real Estate commission....is it negotiable?

Maybe an agent would have valued it at $50000 more and sold it in three weeks.

Re: Real Estate commission....is it negotiable?

6% in Nova Scotia is the current norm (though often 5%) but for high end properties/multiple properties, flat fees and lower rates can apply. It is unusual for a single agent to receive 6% as it is...
