What exactly is a discount agent?
A discount agent provides a discount reduction on their services. These agents charge a lower commission, such as 1.5 percent or 1 percent of the total cost of the home sale. They don't do it out of the goodness of their hearts, however.
When you pay less than the full price for a discount agent, you may receive fewer services than a full-service agent. Some discount agents provide a variety of limited marketing packages from which to choose. Others provide services such as an à la carte menu, where you can choose which services you want to pay for. For example, you may prefer online marketing but not print advertisements such as television and postcards.
