Can sellers negotiate a lower commission than the standard 6% for real estate sales?

To answer your core question: any commission can be negotiated. The standard commission can be difficult for a person to negotiate on their own simply because that is the norm when it comes to real estate sales. Seldom will someone accept less money out of the kindness of their heart, so be willing to give something in return for this type of request. A broker may be interested in learning that you will use them for future real estate transactions or that you plan on referring them in the future. The acceptance of those terms will certainly come down to what the broker is comfortable doing. Remember, just because you ask does not mean it’s what you’ll get.

The good news is, real estate is full of negotiation! Negotiating for terms on your own can be complicated, but there are real estate attorneys who can help you. LawTrades is a marketplace that offers top-notch attorneys who can help you negotiate the terms of your contract and walk away with the best outcome.
