You normally DON'T but check the listing agreement that you signed with the realtor.
Commission is normally due once the house is sold. This is the fall that realtors take, we only get paid when the house gets sold.
HOA fees will vary in each association. You will want to read the CCR's for your subdivision and perhaps even speak to someone in leadership in the HOA. Many times, the listing agent will have uploaded the CCR's to the MLS documents online. If not, they can be requested so that you have time to look them over (typically 10 days from mutual acceptance) before proceeding with the sale.

Dalton Farms is a wonderful community which has many amenities. Pool, Tennis Courts, Basketball Court, Nature Trails, Play Ground and a Club House. The Club house, also known as the Roosevelt House, was the former home of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Jr. Here residents meet for Book Club, Wednesday morning coffee, Mahjong Club and Seasonal Parties. The HOA fees are quite reasonable. Single Family Homes - $147 monthly which cover Pool Services, Ground Maintenace of Common Areas, Snow plowing of the private roads and General Accounting Services. The Townhouses are a bit higher - $163 which includes the above as well as the mowing of your lawn. Dalton Farms has it's own website: www.daltonfarm.org which you can refer to or give me a call. I can speak volumes about Dalton since I have been a resident for over 17 years.
I look forward to hearing from you.
