Paying a realtor?

When you are buying a house, do you pay the realtor on top of the purchase price, or is it included?

  • It's included.
    Basically, the person selling the house pays both realtors. Their fees come out of the sell price of the house. That's why some people choose to sell their home themselves (For Sell By Owner), it lets them keep all that money.

  • If it's a for sale by Owner and you want to use a realtor then you would normally pay.
    Otherwise the seller always pays.
