Real estate commission policies revamped in landmark deal: What are the implications? – FingerLakes1.com

1 minute, 21 seconds Read

The National Association of Realtors has settled a $418 million lawsuit, introducing significant changes to commission policies that will empower buyers and sellers to negotiate fees more transparently. The settlement is poised to reshape the dynamics of buying and selling homes, with realtors adjusting to new operational standards. Central to the revisions is the requirement for buyers and sellers to enter contracts with realtors and negotiate commission rates upfront, a move aimed at eliminating unexpected fees.

Chip Hodgkins, a broker associate, highlighted the practical implications of the settlement, noting that it mandates clearer communication regarding who bears the commission costs. This adjustment is expected to influence commission structures, potentially leading to varied pricing strategies across listings. However, the impact of these policy changes may be moderated by the persistent low housing supply in markets like Central New York.
