Welcome to another episode of
real estate talk. I’m Jill Wente, a Realtor with Better Homes and Gardens Gary Greene

you have to pay for a real estate agent when you’re the buyer? The great
news is no you don’t have to pay for the real estate agent. You have an
opportunity to get representation without it costing you a dollar. How
is your agent gonna get paid? Your agents going to get paid by the
listing agents brokerage. When that listing agent secures the listing agreement
with the seller to sell that property compensation is established. At that time
frame they establish as far as what their brokerage is going to earn and
what that listing agent is going to share in and what the buyers agents
brokerage is going to be paid and what that buyer’s agent is going to share in.
When the property is listed in our MLS it will state the compensation to be paid to the buyer’s agent’s broker. The industry average for the buyers agent broker is 2% to 3% of the sales price. The buyer’s agent brokerage then shares it with their
agent at the time frame that the property is closed and sold. The great
news to you is is that you can get representation without it costing you a
dollar. I would love to have the opportunity to represent you on the
