Discount Commissions or listing for less

I've said this in a previous post but it is worth repeating:

Since commissions are negotiable you might think asking your Realtor to discount or reduce the rate they charge you is a good idea. But is that in your best interest? NO and here is why... A tattoo artist was questioned about a popular tattoo "born to lose" and the interviewer was shocked and asked why someone would want to put such a message on their body. The artist replied: "that message was tattooed on the brain, long before I put it on the body". The same psychological message is conveyed when a Realtor discounts a commission, whether consciously or subconsciously. A home is probably one of your largest financial investments. Do you really want to entrust one of your largest investments to someone who is "born to lose"?
