House prices

House_prices Real Estate Commissions are Too Low. Why haven't we seen anyone propose a commission structure that says the realtor gets a 25% commission... but only on the amount above the assessed value of the property?

There are also some flats in London partcicularly central london where you can fnd really small flats with just one bedroom that sells for £3,000,000. This was in the news recently. But these expensive prices are not just for buying the flat they also buying the Location! Now, when we talk about rent its still expensive but it isn't your property when your renting thats why many first time buyers in London struggle.
