Dear KenCyn,
It varies between brokers and is something you can negotiate with  your Agent.

Commission is is negotiable and the is not a standard rate. However the popular rate is 6%, of the sale price and 3% of which goes to the buyer's agent. Good luck,

There is no standard rate. However, I usually create a net sheet for seller, direct from escrow, so the seller can review all closing costs. I usually see between 7%-9% depending on the negotiated agent fees. 

Hope this helps,

On Zillow?

FREE!

In the MLS with a flat-fee broker and no other services except maybe a lock-box and answering of phone calls?

Probably about $500 to $600.

Don't forget, the "FULL" cost of changing ownership from one house to a different house usually comes to about 16% to 25% after you include your time and other costs.  Realtor fees are only a fraction of the total cost.

Rates are completely negotiable between the broker and seller... there are no standard rates.

You and the realtor will decide on the commission. It is usually 6%. Tarbell offers the e-advantage to market and sell your home. If you are planning to list your home I would be more than happy to earn your business. Let me know if you have any questions.

There is not a standard rate, but the ongoing rate is about 6%, half of which goes to the buyer's agent.  Try not to use "discount brokers" who offer less than 5%  as they provide discounted service and try to get their own buyer so they can earn the entire commission. They will block other agents from bringing in a buyer to the table.

@Natasha

There is NO SUCH THING as a standard commission, and to suggest so is at peril of anti-trust rules kicking in. All commissions are open to negotiation.
