My wife's a Realtor and most commissions are 6%.hatchet said:It really depends on what the market will allow - this is for a commission package. Look at real estate which is typically around 7%. They found if they went more than that people were turned off and would go look elsewhere. Someday it might be up to 8 or even 10% - but only if the market will allow it.
Another way is to pay them hourly and spread their time over all the jobs your get for the year. This is not good for you because no matter if they get sales or not you are paying them.
