How much does a great real estate agent cost?
The answer depends on whether you’re buying or selling a home.
If you’re buying, the answer is…absolutely nothing! The commission fee for your agent is actually paid by the seller. This means the costs to buy your home extend only to your down payment and closing costs (which usually constitute 1% to 3% of the overall purchase price).
If you’re a seller, you’re responsible for the commissions of both your agent and the buyer’s agent. But in reality, as with the buyer, a great real estate agent should cost you absolutely nothing.
What I mean by that is, with the tools at our disposal, we’re able to market your home to the broadest audience and present it in a way that’s appealing to buyers so that they’ll have the confidence to offer you the best price possible.
Working with an agent such as myself will cost you nothing because I can net you more than you’d be able to get if you sold the home yourself. I can also guide you through the entire process and make sure you get where you’re going on time and with minimal out-of-pocket expenses.
