1% Listing Agent Fees. Explained.

Learn what a 1% listing fee really is and what it means for you.

HOW A 1% LISTING COMMISSION CAN SAVE YOU THOUSANDS WHEN SELLING YOUR HOME

When you sell your home, there are typically two real estate agents involved:

01. The “Listing Agent”, who works for you and sells your home.

02. The “Buying Agent”, who represents whoever actually buys your home.

Each agent will receive 2.5% of the final selling price, so the total you will pay in agent commissions is 5% (2 X 2.5%).

If your home sells for $900,00.00, for example, you would pay $45,000.00 in total commissions.

The two agents involved would then split that total commission and receive $22,500.00 each.

Here is how it normally works:

Both agents work independently of one another and the “Buying Agent” still receives 2.5% of the final selling price.

If you hire Wade as your “Listing Agent”, his fee is reduced to just 1% instead of 2.5%.

And that is where you save the 1.5% off the total selling price of your home.

In the above example, this would save the home sellers $13,500.00.
