Who pays a real estate agent’s commission fee? Let’s take a moment to explore this commonly asked question today.

Actually, the seller is responsible for paying commission fees for both agents involved in a transaction. At the close of escrow, buyers are not responsible for any expenses associated with agent commission. This is one excellent reason buyers should always bring an agent to the table.

“Agents aren’t paid until the deal is closed and the buyer has their keys.”

It doesn’t cost you anything out-of-pocket to have an agent on your side, as your agent’s fee will be paid from the seller’s net proceeds. So why not make sure that you have a professional working on your behalf? Agents aren’t paid until the deal is closed and the buyer has their keys.
