Comments for Front Foot

How do you figure if a broker has the listing on a vacant lot of 100 feet wide by 125 feet deep that is for sale at $250 per front foot. What would be the commission at 8% of the sales tax. And how do you figure it

Hello, Shirley! A lot with 100 feet by the street, selling for $250 per front foot would have a selling price of $25,000. We are not sure we understand your question, though. Normally, an 8% commission is quite unusual. It is true that most real estate agents are paid a commission instead of a salary, but that is usually between two and six percent.  However, 8% of $25,000 is $2,000. Let us know if we can further assist you with anything or contact a real estate agent in Arizona
