Don't forget your paycheck!

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Associates Realty, Inc.

If you're anything like me, the process of helping someone find a new home can be so exciting that it is possible to overlook one very important issue; how much are you going to get paid?!  After all the house hunting seeing that glimmer in your buyer's eye when they've found "the one" is so rewarding it's easy to forget you are working to earn a living for yourself!   I find that while writing the offer I get so caught up in my client's details that I consistently forget to ask the co-broke one very important question: what are you offering the buyer's agent?  While finding that perfect home with your buyer is a most satisfying experience keep in mind this is a paying profession!

In our area the buyers agent commission is posted in the info. I usually focus on finging the right house first or your commission is zero. After that I look and usually its a pleasant amount.

I've done the same thing myself. Sadly, I've heard of agents that only show clients homes offering at least 3%.

That should be the first thing that you check, the buyer broker's commission!
