At what % commission does it make sense to hire a Realtor to sell your house?


Many Realtors charge a 6% commission to sell a house. Some Realtors accept a 5% commission, while others insist Sellers will net more money with a 7% commission. What's especially odd about the percentage commission structure of Realtor fees is that it doesn't seem to vary much in different markets even if the average selling price of homes in those markets is very different, or if the market is a Buyer's market or a Seller's market. What % commission do you think Realtors should charge? Should it depend on the price of the house? Should it depend on how hot the real estate market is?
