Tredyffrin Easttown Frequently Asked Real Estate Questions - What do you charge?

Tredyffrin Easttown Realtor Nick Vandekar answers the questions what do you charge, covering it from both a seller and a buyers perspective. 


  • Sellers- Commission is spelt out in the listing agreement and covers how the commission is split between the listing broker and buyer broker. 
  • Why you need your own buyers agent and how approaching the listing agent will not save you money as the commission is set in the listing agreement before the home is listed for sale.
  • Buyers - Commission is paid by the seller, as explained above this is in the original listing agreement, also covered in What Homes can you show me? is how an agreement can be structured to cover the buyer agent commission for For Sale by Owners or even MLS listings where the commission is less than 2.5% which is the minimum we accept working with a buyer.
