Find a Top Real Estate Agent Near You

What is a Realtor's fee in California to sell a property?

Should a Realtor when asked by the Seller give the commission % they are asking for their services? Or is this a dishonest Realtor I'm dealing with? I thought this part was "Negotiation" ?!

Hello, The amount or rate of Real Estate Commissions is not fixed by law. They are set by each Broker individually and may be "negotiable" between Seller and Broker. Hope this helps Oscar

If you are going to sign a contract they do need to disclose how much they are going to charge for their services. Commission is completely negotiable in California so it would depend on the agent/broker how much they would charge you.

Commission should be discussed upfront and disclosed. However, keep in mind with a discounted Broker you will get discounted service. I would definitely recommend interviewing 2-3 agents to see what marketing they offer. At the end of the day, its the agents job to procure the best offer they can for you and you need to make sure that you are comfortable with the person you are hiring that they are working for you.
