Slide Image BAt NXT Home Realtors, we believe that listing and selling real estate today on the MLS does not require a Seller to pay a 6% commission. We also believe that in today’s information age, the role for a traditional agent has changed and will continue to change as the internet powers more of our daily lives. It is true that the fee paid by the Seller is negotiable; however, a traditional real estate agent will still try to convince you, the Seller, that the amount of effort they are going to expend trying to find a buyer requires that they get a 6% (more or less) commission upon the sale of the home.
