In a real estate transaction, the seller usually pays both their agent’s commission and the buyer’s agent’s.
Today I’ll answer another common question I get from buyers and sellers: Who pays what when it comes to agent commission fees in a real estate transaction? The seller usually pays the commission fees for both their agent and the buyer’s agent. The buyer doesn’t pay their agent anything. Once the home sells, the commission is split four ways, total. In addition to each agent collecting their fee, each of their brokerages is paid a fee as well. If you have any more questions about this or any other real estate topic, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I’d love to help you.
