No, we don’t charge this fee either. Real estate agents typically charge a 6% commission to sell your home. For a $120,000 house, 6% is $7,200. That’s a lot of money. Some realtors tell you what you want to hear by giving you an over-inflated sales price. When your house doesn’t sell, you’re forced to drop the listing price to motivate buyers which can cost you tens of thousands of dollars. It may also take weeks or even months to sell your house, not to mention the cost of staging and the inconvenience of having buyers constantly walking through the house.
