As a seller looking to maximize your commission savings when selling your property, you may be wondering what factors influence the commission discount, as well as what can be done in order to maximize your savings. While every home seller's situation is unique, in general the factors that impact the commission discount include sale price of your home, selling time frame, whether you would be willing to utilize the same Realtor to help you sell your existing home and purchase a new one, marketability of the property, and the level of seller agent's involvement in a transaction. The table below illustrates the relationship between various factors in a real estate transaction and commission discount:
Select this level if you want to maximize your commission savings and are comfortable helping your agent with holding open houses and staging.
Select this level if you need medium level of assistance from the agent and would still like to receive a substantial commission discount.
Select this level if you are not familiar with the aspects involved with selling your home and require maximum guidance and help from the agent.
