Well, I'll be darned! There you have it right from the horses mouth! So, um, why do commission rates go up with house prices? Again, another argument for my proposal (subject of another thread you can find here: proposed-change-act-governing-real-esta ... 1711857/3/ ) that commission rates based on the difference between selling and listing price finally be legalized (currently prohibited by the legislation due to intense real estate lobbying). No point on paying any commission except maybe a flat rate on the amount you'd get anyway.
