Real Estate Agent Commission Rate Range

ListingBidder has historical data for listing proposals from real estate agents all across North America.  This data shows that on the open market, where Realtors submit their marketing proposal and real estate commission fee rate, the total commission ask ranges from 3.0% to 6.0%.  These commission rates vary by zip code and almost show a perfect bell curve with the bulk of these proposals falling around 4.75% nationally.  Whether you are looking for the average rate in Arizona or the average rate in Georgia, we have found the rate varies by zip code because the rate falls as the home values increase.

Note:  These figures represent the total commission rate which is usually split between the Listing agent and the Buying agent.
