The amount is negotiable (by law). Many companies charge 6%-7% to list your home. Others provide a discount and sometimes an 'a la carte' method.

There is no usual or standard commission that Realtors are paid. All commissions are negotiable. Most commissions are typically around 6% where the Realtors split the commission. Which would receive 3% to the Selling agent and 3% to the Listing Agent. However, there are some companies that offer discounts and rebates which change the situation.

Most of the time the agent selling the home will receive 3% of the sales price.
