Lisa,

Everything in business is negotiable and this includes commissions.  Consult a few local Realtors and speak with them to discuss these questions and others you may have.  Remember, sales agents have their guidelines usually set by their broker.  If you are looking to save money from high fees and commissions look for a non-franchised brokerage and deal with the broker directly if you can.  Good Luck!

One thing to remember when shopping around, the cheapest isn't always the best. Commissions are totally negotiable, although the agents that repeatedly discount their services may be trying to compensate for inefficiencies elsewhere.  Shop around and ask for references.

Thanks for your question Lisa.  You should work with a local Realtor, they will be able to give you the most accurate answer.

Good luck and thanks for your question.  If you need a recommendation of a quality Realtor in your area, I can provide that.

The expenses of the sale vary by location and the commissions vary by agent and level of services.  As Nelson said, speak with several agents in your area.

To know what to look for in an agent, see the article "How Sellers Should Choose a Real Estate Agent"  Click on my name to get to my profile and scroll down past the testimonials to see a link to that and other articles for sellers.

Commissions are negotiable and vary by market area.  I suggest you speak to 3 local real estate agents and ask them what they charge.  6% is a good estimate if you're trying to calculate your expenses.  In New York, seller's are required to use an attorney for a sale, not the case in Florida I believe.  Additionally, NY has a transfer tax that the seller is usually responsible for.
