Buyer's agent showing my FSBO. Proposed commission of 4.5% - what to do if I think that's too much?I was contacted by a Realtor who would like to show my FSBO to a client of theirs. We are meeting soon to do a walk-through of the house. In our emails, I asked her if we needed to agree on commission up-front or if we do that later, she replied that she "routinely shows FSBO properties at a reduced commission rate of 4.5%." Doing some research, it seems that the typical buyers agent rate should be more like 2% - 3%. I really would be more comfortable with a commission rate in this range, but I am afraid to upset the Realtor and in turn have her discourage her client from buying the house. I should be meeting with her soon and would like some advice on how to approach the subject of bringing down her commission without upsetting her. Or do you think it's better to just leave it alone?January 16 2014 - Sharon00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
