Standard Answer "It's negotiable", there is no "standard" commission fee. Typical fees can vary by the type of property. Most commercial falls in the 3-6% range up to a reasonable amount. Don't expect your side to be 3%+ on a multimillion dollar deal though, rookie assumption.

NO standard commission structure exists. All commissions are entirely negotiable between the parties involved and can be whatever is agreed upon based on all the variables. In the range of 3 - 6% is often what is seen as being offered for such properties depending on the total sales price. The higher the ultimate sales price - the more negotiable the commissions may be. As far as the location described - have to look at how it is zoned and if the highest and best use might be something different than what it is zoned (if such applies) what is required to change the zoning.
