Commission calculus

A common question buyers and sellers ask realtors is how the agent gets compensated. Many that don’t work in the real estate industry are surprised to learn that agents are paid on a commission only basis. Click here to read an article on that explains the concept fairly well.

However, while the amount of commission an agent makes appears somewhat straightforward to buyers and sellers once explained, it is not quite so simple from the perspective of agents working for brokers because these companies vary considerably in terms of splits, fees, and other costs that may reduce an agent’s earnings substantially when all is said and done.
