Commissions negotiable at Agent Invitation

Site lets consumers propose services, fees

A new Web site aims to help consumers and real estate agents negotiate discounted commissions by allowing consumers to send anonymous queries to three agents detailing the level of service they seek and the commission they’d be willing to pay.

Agent Invitation claims agents using the site will be willing to work for reduced commissions because they will save on referral fees and marketing expenses, and because consumers seeking discounts may agree to forgo services like print advertising.
