Here in the DC/MD area we have three or four “discount brokers” who will list your properties on the MLS for around $200.00 total. The discount broke DID NOT recieve 3% only $200.00. But all you get for $200 is just a listing for the property. (Which is all I wanted).
Now, once its listed, you generally pay the selling agent a 3% commission. In my case, I just offered a $1000 bonus to the selling agent who brough me a contract w/n 30 days. This $1000 was in addition to the 3%commission.
I am not sure where you are located but there may be discount broker in your area.
