whatever is agreed to in the listing contract, and yes it is a contract. Without having read the contract it would be impossible to know what it says. Legal advice should be left to the lawyers not the CRE chat board.
I would suggest that if the seller does not know what the contract says, (the one she signed) she should hire a lawyer to read it for her, and to her.
All that said the contract says what it says, not necessarily what I think it should say. The commission is negotiable, before it is agreed to not later. It is very possible that this contract calls for a non traditional commission rate. Might be that it even calls for a flat rate, real hard to tell without reading the documents. My crystal ball is broke down, and in the shop so if you need a lawyer hire one.
