It is interesting to see the reaction to a post regarding agent’s commssion.

As has been pointed out – many companies would never be required to show their “margin” on an asking price…. I would like to see what the producer gets on a packet of fruit or vegetables compared with the price that the supermarket asks – I doubt I will ever see that mark-up.

If the vendor wants to pay the commission then you should assume that they are happy paying that figure…. equally if the buyer wants to pay the price to secure the property then you should assume that they are happy paying that price.

If the purchaser thinks the asking price is too high then they should make an offer accordingly. If the vendor wants to accept that offer then that is, equally, up to them.
