The Power of Lowering a Commission before Lowering an Asking Price

Rhonda Duffy

The final price of a home is an important number because it affects a buyer’s ability to get the financing that is needed to buy the property. If you are getting ready to move with your family and you are having a hard time selling your home, you might consider creative ways to lower the price and make it a better deal for potential buyers.

Factors that Influence the Price of a Home

There are many factors that affect the final selling price of a home. Not only are you negotiating the selling price, but you also need to consider other fees and costs such as closing costs, mortgage fees, and real estate agent commissions.

When a real estate agent is charging a full 3% commission on each side of the deal, you are looking at thousands of dollars in fees that will be paid. As a home seller, that money is cutting into the equity that you can roll into your next home.

As a buyer, paying a high commission to your real estate agent means that you might need to choose a less expensive home since you may be stretching to afford the higher price that includes these commissions. As a result, some buyers will make an offer on a home at a lower price than the seller is asking. But, this strategy can be frustrating since there is a greater likelihood that low offers will be rejected by the sellers.
