The End of Buyer's Broker's Real Estate Commissions in Multiple Listing Services? by Mary Cummins Real Estate Appraiser

The 2020 Nosalek lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Boston alleged that MLS PIN, Keller Williams, RE/MAX, Anywhere, and HomeServices of America colluded to inflate real estate agent commissions. The suit claimed that the defendants agreed to rule changes including allowing compensation offers of $0 to buyer agents and proactively informing consumers that commissions are negotiable. 

The Department of Justice is examining whether the commissions system violates antitrust law. Today the DOJ stated sellers shouldn't offer any commission to buyer's brokers in the MLS. This will allegedly bring down the price of real estate commissions.

I personally feel buyer's agents will just include a 2.5% commission in the offers. It will be paid by proceeds of sale. Buyer, seller still paying a commission fee one way or another. Homes will be listed for the same prices. Commissions have always been negotiable. Appraisers have to read sales contracts for purchase appraisals. We see the negotiations all the time. I doubt things will change much unless flat fee buyers agents start popping up like flat fee selling agents who only list the property on the MLS.
