No, we don’t recommend adjusting it unless your house is worth a million dollars or more.
The harsh reality is that homes without a 3% buyer’s agent commission (BAC) are seen as a RED FLAG to a real estate agent.
Agents expect to be paid the typical fee. When a seller lowers this fee, they are not likely to show your property.
In Texas, about 99% of all homes are listed with 3% being offered to the buyer’s agent.
The smartest thing to do is inflate your list price to include a 3% commission for a buyer’s agent and leave less room to negotiate.
