Why do RealtorsÂ® insist on providing "average" or "normal" commission information?It seems that the topic of "normal", "average", or "customary" commissions and the Sherman Act would be part of RE101. However, REAs insist on providing this type of information - even when there are posts from other REAs that directly reference the Sherman Act.In my casual reading about this, a REA is allowed to say "this is what I charge", but is not allowed to say "this is what is normal", "this is what is customary", etc. (i.e., nothing to imply that there is a "standard"/"normal" commission structure across the RE domain.As a consumer, it really makes me wonder about the intelligence of those who persist in playing with this topic, especially when it is actually possible to respond in a way that provides information but doesn't play semantic-games with the Sherman Act.And, fair or not, questions about the intelligence of individual REAs will extend to the REA community as a whole.November 16 2012 - US22YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
