Can you negotiate your real estate commissions?

Feeling uneasy about the commission rate your real estate agent proposed? The good news is, you’re not stuck with it – commission rates are negotiable. If an agent claims otherwise, it might be time to explore other options. At Manatee, with our extensive experience in Bradenton, we’re well-versed in this negotiation process. Here are some leverage points to consider when discussing commission with your agent:

  1. Home Desirability: If your property is located in a highly sought-after neighborhood or priced attractively for potential buyers, selling might be smoother and quicker. This could be a basis for negotiating a lower commission since the agent’s workload may be lighter.
  2. Price Point: The higher the value of your home, the more substantial the commission for the agent, even with a slightly reduced rate. If your property falls into a high-value bracket, it’s reasonable to inquire about adjusting the commission accordingly.
  3. Timing: The season in which you sell can impact negotiation leverage. Selling during peak seasons when homes move quickly, like summer, may give you more room to negotiate a favorable commission. Conversely, during slower seasons like winter, your leverage might be limited.

Remember, it’s essential to advocate for yourself and your financial interests in this process. If you prefer a quicker, hassle-free sale, consider selling your home as-is for a fair cash price with us at Manatee.
