Sellers typically pay the commission out of their gross proceeds on most listings.
I see that you are registered on Trulia as a renter, and perhaps that's why you asked this question regarding the SALE of a home and the commission.
In rental situations the commission (usually a total of one month's rent, but can vary according to the listing agreement) , also depends on the listing agreement and what the landlord agreed to. It can be paid by the landlord only, the tenant only, or split 50/50 between the landlord and tenant.
Hope that clears up what I guess was your confusion.
This home is currently available for Sale and the commission is being paid by the selling side. The owner agrees to pay their agent a specific % and the selling agent then offers out the commission to the agent that brings the buyer. So the buyer is not obligated to pay any part of the commission. I hope this information was helpful. Please let me know if you would be interested in viewing this home.
