Misleading Offers of Discounted Listing Service in Hawaii

As the seller of real estate in Hawaii you are responsible for paying the real estate commissions on the sale of the property. That amount is normally split equally between the agency representing you as the seller and the agency representing the buyers brokerage. The normal percentage is somewhere between 4% and 6%. Some discount brokerages will offer to do it for less and for example may only charge you a flat fee for example $5,000 to represent you in the sale of the house but the misleading part is that you are not told you are also responsible for paying the buyer’s brokerage on amount of somewhere between 2% and 3%.
