Home Buyer Tips: What is your fee?

While discussing the costs associated with buying a home in Florida with a client last week, I was asked "What is your fee?"   

As a Florida real estate agent I never assume a home buyer understands the home buying process in Florida.  This would be a major mistake.   After all, how often do most people buy a home? 

What is the fee for a buyer's agent?  Who pays this fee?

In the case of buyers suffice it to say the seller pays the buyer's agent including new construction (and sometimes even for sale by owner sellers).  For this reason buyers should never worry about their agent being paid.

Sellers pay their agent and the buyer's agent.  

So what is the fee for sellers?  As in most things for sale, real estate agent services are negotiableThere is no standard fee.

If you are considering buying a home in Viera or Melbourne, Florida, please give me a call to discuss how I can work for you!
