Do you have to pay for the buyer’s agent?
Typically the buyer’s agent is paid by the listing brokerage firm who collects a commission from the seller. Debra is transparent about the commission and will always disclose the compensation paid on the transaction. Should Debra find a home that is listed ‘by owner’ she will negotiate a fee to be paid by the seller to @properties.
