A major settlement could spell an end to 6% real estate commissions

Real estate commissionsThe National Association of Realtors has reached a nationwide settlement that could change the way real estate agents are compensated. Critics say the current system artificially inflates agents' commissions.

For years, sellers have effectively set the commission paid to buyers' agents as a condition of using a multiple listing service (MLS) — a regional roundup of homes for sale. The combined commission — shared by buyers' and sellers' agents — is typically 5% to 6%, which is higher than in most other countries.


Fani Willis can stay on Georgia Trump case if she fires special prosecutor: judge

Fani Willis

A Georgia judge on Friday sharply criticized Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and said she must fire the special prosecutor she hired to oversee the sweeping election fraud case against former President Donald Trump or see her office lose control of the case.

Atlanta-based Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee, in a much-awaited ruling, said Willis had created the "significant appearance of impropriety that infects the current structure of the prosecution team" by having a romantic relationship with special prosecutor Nathan Wade, who is supervising the case against Trump and 14 others for allegedly trying to overturn the results of the 2020 election in the state.

McAfee’s ruling is a stark rebuke for Willis, who defiantly insisted she had done no wrong in dramatic court testimony last month and in a sworn affidavit and could significantly impact the course of Trump’s legal and political future.
