Here is a great posting from the Real Estate Bloggers regarding commissions. (Of course I posted a comment of my own on there!)

Save Money on Commission

Check out this great article from CNN about negotiating commissions with a Realtor. Realtors, you may hate me for posting this, but hey, do we really need to be pocketing $18,000+ when we sell an average home?

Seattle - Tacoma, WA Real Estate

Welcome to the Seattle - Tacoma WA Real Estate Blog. This Blog is hosted by Trevor Smith, a full service John L Scott Real Estate Agent in the Seattle - Tacoma area. I am very interested to hear the opinion of people regarding discount real estate agents and brokerages. I am a discount agent who lists homes for 4% commission (www.4percentrealestate.net). Have you had good experiences? Bad experiences? Agents: I am particularly interested to hear your opinion on the subject.
