Commission may depend on the difficulty of selling the home. For example, a home that is deep in the woods of Vermont with a long dirt road and a log cabin would probably command a higher commission than a Colonial home in a "Leave it to Beaver" type neighborhood; with the same price but different product.
Its always good to read at least some of the posts just prior to yours before answering. Josh, if you had, I can't imagine you would have answered the way you did.First of all, in what world do you always get what you pay for?? In our profession we all know the lousy agents who charge just as much as great agents. Please, if that ridiculous phrase could be struck from all agents' vocabulary, I think this profession would be much better off.Secondly, the posts just prior to yours questioned actual costs, including marketing, that agents pay out of pocket and whether or not it justifies what would be, in this particular case, a 42k commission or even a 21k commission after split. The mls sells the vast majority of houses and the mls automatically feeds into many other RE sites and with a few clicks and very little cost a property can be listed on every major real estate website. So....what marketing would a seller have to give up in order to negotiate a lower commission? Next time, be respectful enough to read at least a few of the posts before yours, maybe even (gasp!) all of them and then you may end up rethinking what you post.
By starting a discussion, you can expect more of an interactive, back-and-forth experience where the conversation can go in many different directions.
