Hedging your bet on real estate commissions

RealtyBaron system aims to guard against failed deals

In the real estate business, a deal is not always a done deal.

There are a variety of factors that can derail a home sale, and the failure rate tends to accelerate in an environment of slumping sales and prices. That is bad news for agents, as they may invest money in marketing a home for sale with no guarantee that they will recoup that investment if the home does not sell.
