The question of what a real estate agent does can be answered by looking at their role in the property buying and selling process. A real estate agent assists buyers and sellers in making the best possible decisions. They have a deep understanding of the market and can provide valuable advice, from pricing a property for sale to negotiating a purchase price. Beyond providing advice, a real estate agent also markets properties, negotiates deals, and guides clients through the buying or selling process. They handle all the paperwork, coordinate with other professionals involved in the transaction such as lawyers and home inspectors, and ensure that everything goes smoothly from start to finish. Their goal is to make the process of buying or selling a home as stress-free as possible for their clients.

What is a Variable Commission?

2021-04-24T14:09:30-06:00By |, , |

In a Colorado Contract for real estate a variable commission rate is self explanatory. Lets's say the total commission rate is 6%. That is usually split as 3.2% for the listing agents and 2.8% for the buyer broker. If the listing agent also brings the buyer they must become a transaction broker. At that point the best real estate companies, like Orson Hill Realty will lower the commission rate for selling the home. They right in the contract that make their commission less or variable down to a total commission of something like 5%. The listing agent gets more than just being the listing agent and the seller saves some money. It is a win-win and Orson Hill Realty agents almost always take advantage of the variable commission.
