For Sale by Owner commision rate

Was curious what was a 'good' rate to offer buyer's agents when selling your own home?

The best way to ensure that your home is being shown is to offer the same as what a buyers agent would get when they sell a home that is listed with a real estate agent.  Commissions are not set but usually buyers agents are offered 3%.
Best of luck to you!

You may find that maximum market exposure is achieved when competitive commissions are offered (in other words, comparable to what your competitors (your neighbors) are offering).  The choice is up to you. We have had sellers be successful as low as $500 and as high as 5%, and everywhere in between, and their most common choices have been 3% and 2.5%.

Commissions are completely negotiable by law. In my area, the FSBO's most often offer buyers agents around 2%, but you can offer a flat amount to buyers agent instead of a percentage also.
