California Real Estate Commission

California real estate commissions are charged by real estate agents when a buyers sell his real estate properties. Our home is our largest investment and whether its value has increased or decreased, we usually want to keep much of money from the sale. After paying the existing mortgage repayments, the next biggest expense in selling a home is the commission of the real estate agent or professional who has assisted us. So, negotiating the amount of the commission rate is the best possible way to save some money from the amount of your property sale.

California Real Estate Commission Rates

Most of the residential properties of the San Francisco Bay Area are listed with a commission rate of 6 percent. In majority of the cases, the seller want the properties being included in the MLS and brokers usually offers about half of the commission to the selling office. On the other hand, new real estate agents receive around 50 percent of the broker's commission. With leading broker companies like RE and MAX, agents get up to 100 percent commission however, they are required to pay the monthly desk fees and are responsible for a number of expenses. It is very important for the buyers to understand that rarely one agent get the full commission. On a home sale of $200,000 on 6% commission with a 50/50 split between the broker and the agent, the agent gets only $3,000 out of the total $12,000 fee.
