How does the buyer’s agent commission work?
Whether to pay a buyer’s agent commission or not is totally up to you as the seller. The typical market cost of a buyer’s agent commission is currently 2-3%. You will only pay this fee if a licensed real estate agent finds a buyer that closes on your property. The payment will be due at the closing table for the amount advertised. However, the level of commission will affect how realtors show the property, so it should be taken into consideration when thinking about pricing and goal sale dates.
