Offering an agent bonus to the selling agent / buyer's agent is a common practice in some areas of the country. I believe these bonuses can be a good or bad thing depending on the individual situation. Here's something that raises red flags: "Restrictions Apply"These restrictions often relate to the offer being a full priced one, or at least one close to it. It is in my opinion that these bonuses be outlawed completely because there is specific monetary incentive for an agent to arrive at a predetermined price when they are supposed to be representing a buyer and/or making suggestions based on what is going on in the current market.Having a bonus available is a nice thing, and it can draw extra attention to your listing. Having a bonus available if an agent brings a full priced offer is just asking for trouble. If the home is priced right a bonus shouldn't be needed to entice a full priced offer.
