It is against the laws and regulations governing Realtors, and the "Realtors Code of Ehics" for a Realtor to boycott another Realtor's listing or another real-estate company, or not to show their properties.

7. I don't understand how Realtors come up with their commission?
Did you know that there are 2 parts to the fees (commission) you, as a seller, pay for Realtor services?

The first part is the fee that you, the seller, pay to the Real Estate Company who lists your home for sale. Different companies charge different fees. Home listing Service, LLC charges a flat fee of $495 for our basic package and $895 at closing. Ask the other agents you talk to what they charge for listing your home. It is totally up to the policies of the individual Real-estate Company. Many charge 2%, 3%, 4% of the selling price of your home, or a higher amount.

The second part of the fee, which you the seller pay out of your sale proceeds, is paid to the Real-Estate company that is the procuring cause of finding you a buyer for your house. This also varies from company to company. You the seller, and the Company you list your house with, agree in the listing contract, what the fee will be for listing the house and what the fee will be for the company bringing you the buyer for your house. When you sign a listing contract with Home Listing Service, LLC, you agree to pay the selling Realtor a 3 % selling commission and to us, the listing company, you pay a small flat fee of $495+ $895 at closing, in most cases.

Our basic package only covers the listing of your property and the other services we explain in the a la carte list. Most other Realtors who are trying to get you to list your house with them are probably not going to bring you a buyer for the fee they are charging you to "list" your property with them. Most Realtors will expect you to agree in the listing contract, to pay the Real-estate company that sells your house an additional specific selling commission fee.
