The True Cost Of Hiring A Real Estate Agent To Buy A Home
Dated: November 16 2018
It costs You– the Home Buyer– NOTHING
to use a Realtor to purchase a home.
The customary 6% commission is paid by the Seller (see graphic):
This holds true for new-construction homes too. The builder at a new development / community is The Seller and honors the payment of the Buyer’s Agent commission. It is important to register the name of your real estate agent with the model home office upon your FIRST visit anywhere, even if you’re “just looking” on your own. The new construction process has many moving parts and you’ll want a Realtor watching your back. If you don’t register your agent, she/he will not be able to intervene on your behalf!

Don't make the largest purchase of your life without having an Agent who works for you and only YOU! A common misconception among Buyers is that they'll get a better deal if they contact the listing agent directly. This is NOT TRUE. That agent has already negotiated their commission of 6% from the seller. They still get the entire 6% if you don't have your own agent. Most importantly, they are representing the Seller and will work to get the Seller the best deal, not you! Commission is paid based on sales price, so Listing Agents aren't keen on getting a Buyer any discounts!
