This Is our Village

If a unit owner sells their 1 bd/1ba condo for $20,000 the normal agent's fee of 6% would be $1,200.00
but the way it was told to me is that a R.E. Agent in CV has a ruling that the least dollar amount they will
accept is $2,000.00. Is there any truth to this.


  1. I am no expert on this, Nutmegger, but I ran into the same thing with one of the local RE agents. To me, it seems quite reasonable given the drop in market values of our condos. It's simply not worth it to a RE agent to go to all the work involved in listing & selling a condo unit for $12,000 (which is what many 1/1's are selling for) to make only $720. Or $1200 in the case of a $20,000 sale. The amount of work involved is probably about the same whether you're selling a $12,000 condo or a $35,000 condo.

  2. Lanny:

    I agree with you 100%. I just
    wanted to know if my statement
    is correct.

  3. I don't think anyone can "rule" on a sales commission at CV. Its usually a matter of negotiation.

  4. The RE agent I heard this about was Century Village R.E., Nutmegger.

  5. Lanny:

    I am not a realtor. I posted
    that a R.E. Agent told me that
    they have a ruling that the least
    amount of an Agent's fee is
    $2,000 for selling property in
    Central Village.
