Express Realty: Consistently Low Commissions Amid Real Estate Changes

I’ve had many people ask what it means for Express Realty in light of the recent changes in the industry. Come July, the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) can’t disclose what a seller will pay to a buyer’s agent, if anything. 

Today, the typical real estate company often charges a commission rate of about 6%. When they co-broke and work with a real estate agent outside their agency, they often keep about 4% and pay 2% to the buyer’s agent.

Express Realty typically charged 3.5-4% and pays a similar 2% co-broke fee. So, Express Realty only keeps 1.5-2% commission, resulting in a 2-2.5% savings to our sellers.

Saving Money for Real Estate Clients 

Since I started my own company in 2008, I never charged 6% commission. Commission ranged from 3-4.5% total. As technology streamlined the real estate sales process, I wanted to offer my clients more savings. I paid 2% to the buyer’s agent but took the lower percent commission on my end. This saved my clients millions of dollars in commissions since 2008.

Going forward, I will charge 2% to my sellers, and they can decide if and what to pay the buyer’s agent or have the buyer pay the commission. Right now, most real estate clients still want to pay a buyer’s agent. Clients want to ensure that buyer’s agents show a house, as they know not all buyers can afford to pay a buyer’s commission.

Always Charging Low Commissions

I truly appreciate everyone recognizing I never charged 6% commission. I ALWAYS have and will have my client’s best interest at heart. I recently received this 5-Star review. My clients make every night, weekend, and yes – even holidays – I’ve worked worthwhile!
