In the prior seller’s market, most sellers did not seem to mind that their real estate agent was charging them a whopping 6% or more commission to sell the property. That was the era when the seller was making large profits on homes that were selling at or above the asking price.
Now many sellers are questioning the commission amount and the work done by the real estate agents. This has resulted in companies that help the owner sell his or her home without a licensed real estate agent. You can now buy a home directly from the owner or through a company that will only charge the seller a flat fee to sell the home.
