There is no such thing as a common real estate agent percentage rate. Every agent negotiates their own rates as a percentage or fee amount. My follow agents are correct we are bound by the Anti Trust Law and can not "price fix" commissions. 

I recommend to interview 2-3 agents, some work for less than others. You should look into and compare what service and knowledge you are offered with the commission rate negotiated. The cheapest is not always the best. You get what you pay for!

There is a Federal Anti Trust Law having to do with price fixing that prevents Realtors from ever making a statement saying that any specific commission rate is common, average, usual, etc. Commissions are negotiable by law.

It's true that each area sees rates that are most prevalent, but that varies by area. Interview 2-3 agents and you'll know.

There is no such thing as a common rate. Every commission on every deal is negotiated between the client and the broker via the agent.

I would imagine that it would be similar everywhere and would range from 4% to 6% or a combination of that.   Good Luck!
