Overall, receiving a higher commission split may seem attractive in the short term, but a real estate agent should consider long term goals and seek value over price. While higher commission splits may seem more attractive, it can lead to more work and decreases their lower net income due to additional fees, less support, limited technology, lack of opportunities, and high competition.
Limited Support: High commission split companies cannot offer the same level of training, marketing or admin support that others offer their agents. So, agents have to spend more of their time and personal monetary resources to provide these much-needed services.
More Fees: High commission split companies charge their agents more fees than others. The fees can go to things like office space rental, utilities, or admin staff, increasing their agents’ expenses and decreasing their overall net income. They have more personal time commitment because they are responsible for more aspects of the business.
Limited Technology: High commission split companies cut corners on technology, like utilizing a very basic website and CRM system, which can impact an agent’s ability to connect with clients in a timely manner leading to a loss of business.
Success is not solely determined by the commission split. Factors such as lead opportunities, training, negotiating skills, problem solving abilities and support play crucial roles in an agent’s overall income. A higher split alone does not ensure greater income if these other factors are lacking.
For example, having access to quality leads and receiving effective training can lead to more successful transactions and higher commissions, regardless of the split. Similarly, being a skilled negotiator and problem solver can result in better deals and higher earnings. Additionally, having adequate support allows agents to focus on activities that generate higher income, rather than getting bogged down in lower income task.
Therefore, while a higher commission split may seem attractive on the surface, it’s important for real estate agents to consider the full range of factors that contribute to their net income.
