The real estate commission structure is a fee paid to the real estate agent or brokerage for their services in buying or selling a property. It is usually a percentage of the sale price and is split between the listing agent and the buyer’s agent. Here’s how it works:
- The commission is agreed upon by the seller and the listing agent when the property is listed.
- The commission is typically a percentage of the sale price, usually around 5-6%.
- The commission is split between the listing agent and the buyer’s agent, with each receiving a portion, often 50/50.
- If the property is sold without a buyer’s agent, the entire commission goes to the listing agent.
- The commission is paid by the seller at closing, after the sale is completed.
- In some cases, the commission may be negotiable, especially in a buyer’s market.
It’s important to note that commission structures and fees can vary by state and by individual real estate agent or brokerage.
