Appears your question has been answered, but I'll offer mine as well. Any commissions will be paid by the seller. You, as the buyer will not have to pay for the services of a Buyer's agent. We represent only you and will do much of the leg work for you to help you find the right home. I generally specialize in the West Valley area of Phoenix covering Buckeye, Goodyear, etc.
Please feel free to call or email me any time if you have any questions; especially if you find a house you want more information about.
Have a wonderful Day,
Edie Wood, Realtor
Arizona Team Realty
I would be so bold to proclaim that a good Realtor can save you money, also save you in the risk category. The expertise in navigating the process, the property, having the correct inspections completed etc are worth their weight in gold.
We never charge our buyers, always paid by the sellers. We work on good faith, trust is a two way street, hopefully we may have an opportunity to earn that cherished bond with you in this move.
The seller pays the Realtor's commission to the buyer's broker and agent in most cases. It is very important to have a Realtor represent you to listen to your needs and get you the best house for the best money.
If you need more information please contact me.

Arizona homes and land for purchase or sale
IT will depend on the real estate you choose to purchase.
As others have stated, in the overwhelming number of transactions, there will be NO COST the the buyer for help of a real estate professional.
However, some brokerages will list a property for sale with only $1(one whole dollar) in compensation to the agent representing the buyer. This is the service provided by many limited service brokerages. If you should stumble onto a home for sale in this category, be sure to discuss with your agent your preferences:
- Remove these listings from my choices
- Pay your agent directly
- Let the professional you hired do what they do best...NEGOTIATE with the seller.
Other complications arise should you entertain the option of short sales, bank owned and auctioned properties.
As you can see, the freedom of choice home buyers and sellers demanded and received, has made the real estate marketing landscape much more complex. Such complexity tends to make help from an experienced professional worthwhile.
Share this note with your agent and have the 'talk.'
Assure your agent of your commitment to the process
You will be glad you did.
Best of success to you,
