Be very careful of going with discount agents. Either you will get someone with a flat fee that will be worthless aside form just listing your property on MLS and not looking out for your interest. Or you can end up with a new agent willing to cut their commissions because they have no business.

Either way you can save the commission but may end up getting drastically less money for your property as the party that is supposed to be looking out for your interest will not be motivated.

My suggestion to all those considering this would be to first contact a seasoned agent in the area and try listing the property for what you want to sell it for +6% commission. If you do a 30-60 day listing you should get an idea of the amount of interest in your property which will help you determine if you even need to look for a discount agent.

Also keep in mind your listing agent will not bring the buyer most of the time, therefore put your self in the buyers agent shoes. If the agent has a serious buyer with cash money you can bet your a$$ that they will bring them to the properties offering 3% to each side rather than those offering 2% to each side.

I offer full service real estate to include first page exposure on Zillow and worldwide exposure and marketing in addition to a professional photographer and local print marketing for a flat fee of 2%.  You will still need to offer the buyers agent a min of 2.5% but for a total of 4.5% you get more than what you would normally pay 6% for.  One last bonus is if I find and represent the buyer, I discount the 4.5% to 3.5% total which is one heck of a deal for any homeowner looking for professional representation to sell their home and not just a discount broker who will charge you $500 to list your home on MLS and walk away and let you fend for yourself from that point on with no guidance or marketing.

Discount Real Estate agent's advertise as such.  Looking on the internet may not reveal the "discount" agent's out there.  You can typically find in print advertising, direct mail and signs.

Remember that you get what you pay for!  Sometimes this discount means let money and time dedicated to selling your home.  So your research!
