Giving guidelines based on historical data and an answer to a beginner is not illegal or price fixing but very helpfull. Obviously there are no standards. We vary as well depending on the offering, services offered, location, deal, international, etc. but it goes anywhere from 6% to 10%, sometimes up to 15%. with limits and scheduled down too...You can also be a partner/investor buyer/seller or a mortgage broker, which will through away any of these comments...God Speed, especially in this economy!
