Consumers win in real estate pay system

Perspective: Revamping Real Estate Commissions

Real estate fees: So much talk, so little action.

Everyone, whether they are in the business or not, is an authority about how terrible the current system is and how it should be restructured. But no one actually has any workable ideas or they would have been implemented by now.

The real issue is that no matter how much people complain about percentage-based fees, both buyers and sellers get more than they "pay" for.
