How Much Should Brokers Make?

New, 38 comments

Over the weekend the Times rocked the boat by touching on a taboo topic: In this day and age, should sellers have to pay a 6% commission? (The answer: No, at least not every time.) Now the broker-bloggers are starting to add their two cents. UrbanDigs: "Yes. Brokerage commissions are negotiable, especially as you get over the $1m price point." Malcolm Carter: "The Times implies a trend where none exists, especially because sellers appreciate that our current housing market makes it tough to unload a property that isn’t ideal."
