I don’t know ANY agent based on the CDS who charges more than 7.25% infact if they are not in the network they all charge 5%. Some of the biggest commissions earn’t were by the old system of the spanish runners when they asked the seller “how much do you want for the sale” their logic being if some foreigner came along they could ask a high price and anything over the amount the owner wanted was theirs. Unfortunately, this practice has been used by some of the english agents but it happens mainly in rural areas.
all the INnewtork agents start at 7,5%. And progressively lower the commission as the price gets higher
