The house the buyers chooses determines the compensation that will be received.
A homeonwer CAN contract to have the home appear in the MLS with compensation to the buyer agent to be ONE WHOLE DOLLAR. ($1)
A buyer may find a house on 'ripoff.com' and have their agent present an offer where ALL PROFESSIONAL FEES (buyer and seller) are deferred to the BUYER!
There are many others configurations for home sales that DO NOT PASSIVELY provde for the buyers agent to be conpensated. I recently visited a FSBO offering 1/2 of one percent to the agent for the buyer.
Now Steve, you may think $1 is adequate compensation for your agent. Please contact one of those agents who agreee with your and hold them to their commitment.
We aware, we have not discussed at this fime the FULL COMPENSATION an agent will receive after spending 60 hours finding that $30,000 delapidated condo you eventually purchased.
Again, IT IS THE PROPERTY THE BUYER SELECTS THAT DETERMINES THE CONPENSATION.
Your statement is incorrect!
Best of success,

You seem to be more interested in what we make then asking pertinent questions about how to find a good Realtor in Florida or better yet a good home. I'd focus on that and forget about how we get paid by the seller.
