As mentioned below the homeowner is responsible for the sellers commission and the buyer's agent's commission. In our area 5% is typical for both sides.

Not sure where you are getting your number or what they regard. 5% is only 3570... If you are the seller ask your listing agent , if it is regarding a mortgage than you should ask your loan officer...

3% of $119,000 is $3,570. You would need to clarify in what context you are talking about. in regards to where/how this was presented to you.

Hi Tasargent774,
I do not think Marketing has anything to do with Math, but maybe I am wrong. $119,000. X .03 = $3570.00. This is the way I figure it. But usually when you sell a property, the commission in your listing agreement is split between the listing agent and the selling agent. You need to look closely at your listing agreement. I do not think you are talking about a downpayment or closing cost since you said "marketing". Marketing leads me to think you are talking about a listing on your property.
