Q: I hope this finds you well. I always enjoy your program on AM 750 WSB- Atlanta, Ga.

It is my understanding that the commissions in the real estate note brokering industry range from 2 to 8 percent of the transaction amount. Is this right? I welcome your thoughts/comments at your convenience.

A: The average commission is about 5.1 percent. If the house is difficult to sell (or the agent perceives it will be), you’ll typically pay a higher commission. You can also pay a lot less by trying to sell it yourself. I have a lot of information on the www.thinkglink.com website that addresses this. Check it out.
