Lehigh Valley Real Estate Commissions

A Commisson on a Lehigh Valley Home Sale is totally negotiable.

A common question is "How much is the commission?". The problem with this question is that most home sellers don't ask "How much is the commission and what will you and your company provide for it?". They think only of the bottom line.

How much an agent can Negotiate a Commission is typically dependent on the company they work for and the services they will provide. If a Home Seller agrees to pay a higher commission they should expect a higher degree of service.

Real Estate has various models among the many brokerages.

Companies provide different services. Some may or may not include putting your home on the MLS, conducting open houses, setting up showings, negotiating offers and inspections and providing other services that are usually expected in a stereo typical home sale.

As a Lehigh Valley Home Seller, you should be aware of what services the company will provide and what services will be provided by the agent. Will you get the same level of service if you offer a lower commission?

No matter what your choice, it is important to ask what services you will be getting.

Commission Breakdown

The commission on a home sale is usually split into two (this can vary depending on how the listing contract is written). It is divided evenly between the company that represents the seller and the company that represents the buyer.

So, if a 6% commission is offered, the Seller's Company will typically get 3.0% and the Buyer's Company will get 3.0%. Then, the agents representing the buyer and seller will each get a percentage of their Company's portion.
