What to Pay the Buyer’s Agent

Should you decide to pay a fixed, non-negotiable buyer’s agent commission, we recommend either 2% or 2.5%.

The first chart shows the buyer’s agent commission paid on Active listings. Here you can see the most popular option is a 2.5% commission to the buyer’s agent.

The second chart below shows the percentage of listings that sold for a specific buyer’s agent commission level.

Both charts are from MLS data going back one year.

We also haveĀ live data that shows you the actual numbers.

You can also choose to negotiate the buyer’s agent commission. See how to do that.
