Many Buyer's Agents offer "Rebates" to their clients. How does this rule change affect that?
Letting brokerage websites publish the commission that a homeowner is offering the buyer’s agent will show everyone all the incentives at work in a home sale and make it easy for agents to explain the costs of our services.
And being explicit that a listing can offer buyers’ agents any commission or now even no commission will assure consumers and agents alike that Seattle’s real estate market is wide open for competition.
Therefore, the public will be able to see in advance what percentage of commission is being paid on any home.
