Honestly I almost never ever see a buyer agent comp under 2.5% unless maybe it's $2M+ the people get stingy and try to go with 2 or 2.25%.

In my area $300-500k is the average sales price depending on county and lately a lot of <$175k properties listed with 2% buyer comps have been popping up? What are these agents stupid? You think anyone is going to help you sell your <$175k property at 2%?

Don't be a fool and if you have to list it at under 5% you take the hit on whatever it was under 5% on the listing side or we ain't going to help you.

Let's be honest, if your buyer asks to see the property what are you going to say.. No!

John, I'm sure a lot of agents who need to feed their families will come up with something to keep their buyers from buying the house. Offering a low buyer comp is doing a disservice to the seller. We always split it 50/50.

Hi Dave,
I don't disagree other then I work with some investors and have handled a few auction properties. I'm currently waiting to close a Hudson & Marshall property with a 1.5% commission.
It's not common in MN to do a 50/50 split. It's usually 2.7 to the buyer's rep and 2.8-3.3 to the listing agent. (2.7% is or brokerage minimum).

We are starting to see one once in a while as well. The sellers should know that Realtors will show their home last.
