The typical real estate commission to sell your home is 5% of the sale price of the house. It is then split in half. 2.5% by the listing agent and 2.5% to the selling agent. With the Matt Phillips Team we only charge a low commission of 1% on our end. So your savings with our 1% commission vs the typical real estate commission would be 1.5%.
