(1) A selling agent's commission is highly recommended as part of the MLS listing. The current market commission is generally 2.5% or 3% to be paid only as a result of a sale generated by a Realtor ®. The buyer's agent commission is determined by the home owner and can be as low as 0%. However, it should be noted that a buyer's agent commission of less than 2.5% will most likely have a negative impact on the marketing of you home.
