FAQ

The cost of a buying agent varies greatly. Most buying agents charge a commission between 0.5% – 1% of the purchase price. When buying a house, it is normal to agree on a fixed price with the purchasing agent. When you agree on a commission there can be disagreement about the interests of the broker. In addition, many brokers work on a ‘no-cure, no-pay’ basis. In that case, you owe the buying agent as soon as a house has been purchased.

It is possible to buy a house without a buying agent. Of course, there are advantages and disadvantages to buying a house without a real estate agent. In retrospect, it is often questioned whether buying a house without a real estate agent saves you a lot of money in the end. After all, you have to arrange and figure out everything yourself, while a real estate agent already has that knowledge and experience.

If the selling broker is also your buying broker, the law does not allow the broker to also be the selling broker. At that point, there would be a conflict of interest. A real estate agent is often both a buyer and a seller, but of course not for the same property. You can have your purchase broker sell your old house, that way you can make a nice deal with the broker.

No, the cost of a real estate agent is (unfortunately) not tax deductible.
