What is the going real estate commission rate in Seattle, WA?

Hello, 6% is the norm. 3% for buyers agent and 3% for the listing agent.  Depending on the situation this can be negotiated. But, whatever the commission rate that is agreed upon, the most important thing is will your listing attract a qualified buyer who will make an offer and will the transaction close?  So, when interviewing an agent, ask how the agent markets their listings and make sure that your home is priced right to sell! Also, make sure that you understand the process of selling your home-this way there will be no suprises.  The goal is for everybody to be happy!
