Sellers Broker Commission

Hi,

My dad is a licensed broker and is planning on selling our house.  He doesn't want to charge us commission.  Is there a way to write this up so that he waives his portion of the 6%?  The state is Maryland, in case it matters.

Thanks,

Sure, just have the paperwork reflect the commission you guys have chatted about and he will share the selling brokers commission being offered in the MLS.
He must get approval of his broker in case he is not one.

States allows for the commission to be negotiated. If your Dad is the broker, he should be able to write up the contract to only cover the amount that he must pay the buyer's broker. Is he an agent or a broker? If he is an agent for the broker, it is possible that his broker may not allow him to take a "no charge" listing. Good luck!!

You should ask your dad, since he is a broker.
