I had made a big mistake! I had assumed she knew it would not cost her anything for me to assist her. So I wanted to place a small post that explained the most common "payment" arrangements in the Brevard County Florida real estate market.
- If you are looking for a rental property that is listed in the MLS, the owner pays the "renter's agent," not the renter.
- If you are the buyer of a property that is listed, the seller pays your buyer's agent. [Even if you are interested in a FSBO, your agent may be able to negotiate the seller paying their fee.]
- If you are the seller of a property, you will be paying your seller's agent and the buyer's agent.
The bottom line: get represented!
