Most agents work on a commission of a percentage of the sale. that number is different depending on the type of Real Estate for sale. You can also hire an agent to locate property for you. Be sure to understand all fees are negotiable.

Hi Brigid, with rentals there are two ways to go... the landlord may pay the agent, or you may be asked to pay the first month's rent as commission. This depends entirely on the agreement with the landlord.

For help and the most competitive rate, please contact me with your full anme and phone number and I will put you in touch with a colleague from my company who focuses on Buffalo.

Dear Brigid:

It does not cost you anything for us to help you find a rental. The owner (landlord) is responsible for the commission. Please let us know if you would like some help. Thank you! Michelle & Tom Stone

It doesnt cost you anything. Any rental unit listed with an agent is charged a commission. Its the same with buyers looking for a home. They are charged nothing. The lister is charged a commission to find a buyer for there home.

If this helped at all please notify me at
Thank you

The agent's commission will depend on the actual agreed monthly rent payment that will appear in your lease--and commissions do vary, there are no set standars--ask your agent the question, he/she can answer accurately.
