There are no set fees when it comes to commissions for realtors and brokerages. The commission is agreed to by both the seller of the property and the listing agent with the permission of the listing broker.6% is a good place to start, but the commission can go up or down from there and there can also be flat fees set or selling bonuses as well.

For a buyer there is no real estate fee with our company. A seller would pay a commission on the sell of their home which is usually 6%.

Hi Joy,

Normally the commission is paid by the seller of the property. Many brokers do charge buyer's a fee usually called a transaction/processing fee. These amounts can range as high as $750.

If you are planning to buy in Florida, ask the agent what fee is charged by their company, as it can vary widely from company to company.

Fee to sell a house is something one comes up with the agent. This percent will change depending on each agent and is will vary according to services rendered. As a rule of thumb, you can think about 6%, going up and down from this number depending on agent, issues, amount of services wanted. There is NO hard and fast number.
If one is a buyer, then the fee is nothing or something depending on what you need as buyer. Normally, in a MLS situation, the buyers agent is given a cut of the selling agents fee, and the buyer will pay nothing to little to have an agent help them - but again its a issue you will work out with the agent.
