Traditional Real Estate Commissions Explained

Sellers pay the commission to both agents—typically 5 to 6% of the home’s selling price. The seller’s agent and the buyer’s agent each get 2 to 3%.

The Local Realty Seller Savings

The Local Realty sellers pay as low as 4% overall. Instead of 2 to 3%, we charge as low as 1% to list your home.*

You can offer the buyer’s agent any commission you like, but we recommend the standard 2.5 to 3% to encourage agents to show your home to their clients.

The Local Realty Buyer Savings

The seller typically pays The Local Realty 2 to 3% of the home price for representing you as a buyer, just like they would to a traditional agent. However, The Local Realty contributes part of that money, $4,000 on average, to your closing costs.

The exact amount depends on the home’s asking price. When the savings are larger than your closing costs, we typically give you a check for the rest.

If you buy a short sale, the typical calculation does not apply. Instead, we’ll give back up to 15% of our commission.*
