If the answer is YES the keep on reading. I am sure I can shine some light on what that means and help YOU the reader better understand exactly what you are getting in to when hiring a real estate agent to sell your home in Detroit, MI.
1st. Real Estate Agents get paid on commission. In 2020, the average percentage for real estate agents is 6% of the price that your home sells for. This percentage is usually split between the agent your hired (Seller’s Agent) & the Buyer’s Agent. Resulting that each individual agent would receive an equal split of three percent of your home’s final sale price.
EXAMPLE: You list your home for sale and are asking for lets say… $100,000.00. Both the seller’s agent and the buyer’s agent will receive 3% of that sale. a Total of $6,000.00. This commission is paid buy YOU the seller; leaving you with $94,000.00.
