A Realtor Buyer's Agent can work in several ways, one of which is that the buyer is required to pay any additional commission to the buyer's agent when the seller is not offering out the amount requested.
Most sellers offer commission to all Realtors who are negotiating the transaction, even those representing the buyer.
All Realtors can represent the buyer or the seller. All commission structures are individualized by the particular Realtor.
If you do not like the deal the Realtor is offering, you can negotiate or you can find another Realtor to represent your interests.
Yes commission for purchase comes from the seller and they pay for both buyer's agent and seller's agent.
It is unusual that buyer pays buyer's agent. If you have any other questions, or would like more information on a particular property please give me a call at 347.841.3073. I'd be happy to answer an questions you may have.
