Off-the-plan commissions

I have recently come across off-the-plan developments in Brisbane where the agent is being paid a flat 7% or 8% commission.  These agents are mostly selling to foreign buyers.  On a $600,000 apartment, that means $48,000 goes to the agent.  In other words, you are paying at least 8% too much!
