In this week's video, Mark explains how much you'll be expect to pay a Realtor as a buyer.
The short answer is...nothing.
As a buyer, you are not (in most cases) expected to pay a Realtor up front or in any other fashion.
The seller of the home has previously agreed upon a commission (usually a percentage of the sale) to be paid out to the Listing Broker. In return for bring a buyer, the Listing Broker has agreed to pay out half to the buying broker.
There may be some extenuating circumstances that lead to a Buyer paying their Realtor, but in the vast majority of cases, this is about it. Nothing is a pretty reasonable price to pay for everything a Realtor does for you.
