For the past several decades real estate industry standard commission rates hover around 5%-6% of the sale price of a property being sold.
The influx of technology and information readily available online has dramatically affected the real estate industry. What once was information held by licensed real estate agents is now public and commonplace knowledge. Sellers and Buyers have a lot more information at their fingertips and come to the table as a very savvy consumer.
Liz recognizes the changing real estate industry requires adjustments to the way business is conducted. She sees this time as an opportunity for her clients to save on their bottom line while streamlining their real estate transaction, and as an opportunity to give to back to the community.
Liz has elected to reduce her commission to 1% of the sale price of any listing transaction she is involved with. The broker on the reciprocating side of the transaction will still take their standard commission, however, Liz will take much less. She is encouraging her clients to make a donation to charity of at least a portion of the monies she is saving them in commission. In most cases, the donation made by the client can be used as their personal tax deduction. The more the client gives, the greater the deduction!
