For a buyer or a seller? Beware, agents are not allowed to discuss "normal" contract conditions, this is individually negotiated between broker and client. However, I can tell you what I typically charge. If it is a listing, depending on the type of property, type of sale and price point, the listing fee is 5-10% and usually split 50/50 with any cooperating brokers. If I am working with a buyer, usually I charge 2.5-5% assuming the property is readily available (found in the MLS); and it's usually paid by the listing broker. If they are looking for something special and I need to find a property that is not already listed and handle both sides of the transaction, I might charge 3-10% depending on the property, price point and level of difficulty. I also may do it on a flat fee basis and not a contingency. Residential listings are on the lower sides of these numbers, land tends to be higher, but it does depend on the price point. I have sold lots for as little as $5K, and I am not going to work for $100, so there are min fees that apply that make those percentages higher. On the other side, I once wrote a contract for $45m, and the percentage fee for that was exceptionally low. Not sure if that helps you.
