How Much Commission Do Buyer's Agents Get Paid?

FSBOs & Buyer's Agents

FSBOs use entry only MLS listing to list by owner on the MLS without a Realtor to avoid paying a listing broker commission, but what about the Buyer’s Agent?

There’s ambiguity here for the average FSBO, FSBOs just don’t know what to offer.

In "traditional" full-commission real estate transactions, there’s a total amount of real estate agent commission decided upon when a listing agreement is signed, and that commission is split between the listing broker and the Buyer’s Agent.

WHAT’S INCLUDED in our exclusive report
that doesn't sound so hard, what's the big deal?

Here's the difference between you and a realtor, data access.

FSBOs Pay Buyer’s Agent Commission

In looking at buyer’s agent commission paid on both single family homes and condos sold in Massachusetts, what we saw is there’s a sweet spot of 2% or 2.5% earned by buyer’s agents.  Our study revealed that a majority of the time, one specific buyer’s agent commission is offered in Massachusetts. Interesting for FSBOs is that the commission they offer buyer’s agents differs slightly from the overall market. While there are sellers interested in offering a buyer’s agent commission of less than 2%, this only happens .24% of the time in our research.
