Usually the seller pays the Realtor fees. The exception is if you wish to hire a buyer's agent, who will probably also be paid by the seller, but if you choose, you may also agree to pay the buyer's agent a set amount or percentage in case the seller's commission is not what the buyer's agent will accept or the buyer's agent shows you "for sale by owner" properties also. Then the seller may or may not offer a commission to an agent. Usually even these sellers will pay though. In other words, with only a few exceptions, which you will have agreed to supplement, the seller will pay and you will enjoy the services of a Realtor to assist you.
We suggest that if you have not already chosen a Realtor, you consider a CRS agent. Fewer than 4% of Realtors nationwide have qualified to earn this prestigious designation that requires extensive education and also substantial experience and proven results with sales for sellers and buyers. You can find a CRS agent at CRS.com. Happy home hunting. What a great time to be a buyer!
