Shannon Wall Centre is being developed on the site of the historic Shannon Estate owned by both Austin Taylor and BT Rogers of Rogers Sugar during its storied history. This marvellous 10-acre property has belonged to the Wall family for decades. In its heyday, the grounds hosted lavish weddings and grand parties for Vancouver’s upper-crust.

Now, Peter Wall is realizing his vision to turn the estate into a luxury community centered around the restored mansion, coach house and gate house.

Realtor Fees & Commissions in Vancouver – Are they Negotiable?

Are Real Estate Commission Fees in Vancouver BC Negotiable?

Yes! – This is the answer that all Realtors in Canada are required to give according to the Federal Governments Competition Act. We Realtors are also require to say that there is no standard rate of real estate commissions for Sellers in Canada.

The Federal Government wants to make sure prospective sellers know that there is not one standard real estate commission rate in Canada and that real estate commissions are negotiable.

That said, how much a Realtor is willing to negotiate on their commission is completely up to individual an Realtor. Also, Realtors are allowed to set their commission at any amount they choose.

Want to know How Much I Charge to Sell a Property?

Check out this cool Real Estate Commission Calculator!

Consider the example of a Realtor with a lot of business who consistently and regularly sells the properties they list for sale. A Realtor like this does not need to negotiate on commission or will negotiate very little because their services are in demand with sellers.

Realtors like this can turn away prospective sellers with unrealistic commission expectations or negotiating demands.

Remember we Realtors are required to say real estate commissions are always negotiable, but that does not require a Realtor to negotiate on commission as the Realtor can refuse the listing.
