home for sale

In consideration of the real estate broker successfully finding a buyer for the home, a broker anticipates receiving a commission for the services the brokerage has provided. Usually the payment of a commission to the brokerage is contingent upon finding a buyer for the home, the successful negotiation of a purchase contract between the buyer and seller, or the settlement of the transaction and the exchange of money between buyer and seller. The median real estate commission charged to the seller by the listing (seller's) agent is 6% of the purchase price. Typically, this commission is split evenly between the seller's and buyer's agents, with the buyer's agent generally receiving a commission of 3% of the purchase price of the home sold

In California, commissions on real estate transactions are negotiable, there are new breed of marketplaces that facilitate the process of negotiation. Local real estate sales activity usually determines the amount of agreed commission. Real estate commission is usually paid by the seller at the closing of the transaction as detailed in the listing agreement
