There is no usual cost. It can range from under $100 up to a couple thousand, or it could be a percentage of the monthly rent. If you tell me what you are looking for, I can help to find it for you. I will not charge you a fee, however I would accept a comssion from the leassor. You can reach me at or 405.625.1576.

Whatever you decide, Good Luck!

Hi Kdy, depending on the agreement with the broker, the landlord may pay the fee or it may fall upon the renter. However, the fee is fairly reasonable. Usually it amounts to either 10% of the annual rent or one month's rental fee.

For reasons why it makes sense to hire a realtor, you can read my blog, Top 10 Reasons to Hire a Real Estate Agent. Link below!

If you are still looking for an agent, contact me (click on my name) and leave me your full name and phone number and what you are looking for. I will connect you will an excellent colleague of mine who services Oklahoma City.

Warm regards...

Some REALTORS work as a Single Party Broker -- they advocate for YOUR best interest. Other REALTORS work as Transaction Brokers. All REALTORS work under a cooperative agreement thru the listings held by the Listing REALTOR. The service is "free" to Buyers. Please feel free to email me if you would like more information.

The Buyer Broker fee is typically 3% of the sales price and is normally paid from the sellers proceeds. I'd be happy to assist you in your home search.

There are companies that will find you rentals for a fee, however I would suggest calling some of the bigger real estate companies because you will find agents that own their own rental properties and then you have some real estate companies that might have a property management company inside their office and they may not charge a fee to help you with their own inventory but there might be an application fee if they have one you like. Again, there are plenty of ways to find a rent home without having to pay someone a fee to find it. Also drive around in areas you like and look for "For Rent" signs.

Good Luck!
