Real estate agent commissions are in the midst of a change. For decades, the traditional 6% commission was split between buying and selling agents.

These resources make the process easier and more efficient for the agents and allow home buyers and sellers to do some of the work themselves. How can agents currently justify taking 6% of the price of the home for what appears to be less work on their part? In anger and frustration, consumers are beginning to search for alternatives. Find out what alternatives you have to the 6% commission, including the newest flat fee, service model by Recadia.
