It's the same in Georgia. Commission is as agreed by Seller and his Broker.

True – the broker’s commissions are negotiated between the broker and seller; however, more specifically to your question – broker’s commissions are stipulated in the purchase and sale contract.

ALL...Real Estate commissions are negotiable. Your listing agreements will state your companies commission rates...and as a matter of law...must, but they can, and invariably are negogiated. by the Seller. In some cases the Buyer may ask you in the course of the transaction to adjust your commission to " facilitate" the sale. Commissions can be negoiated as far into the transaction as the closing. When you have been in the business long enough you will encounter this tactic. If you feel at any time that your commission is in jepordy,have the company attorney prepare a brokers lien.

Commissions are negotiable and once agreed, are stated and signed in the listing agreement between the brokerage firm and the sellers.

Commissions are totally negotiable. In fact, any actions that could be interpreted as attempts to set standard commissions could be considered restraint of trade and could be subject to antitrust actions. Some very litigation-conscious brokers absolutely refuse to discuss total commissions with other brokers in a public setting.
