  1. Increased Exposure: By compensating buyer's agents, sellers attract more agents who bring qualified buyers to view the property, thereby increasing its exposure in the market.

  3. Motivated Buyers: Buyers are more likely to work with a real estate agent when they know their agent will be compensated for their efforts. This encourages motivated and serious buyers to consider the property.

  5. Competitive Advantage: In a competitive market, sellers who offer compensation to buyer's agents stand out from those who don't. This can lead to more offers and potentially higher sale prices.

  7. Smooth Transactions: Buyer's agents play a crucial role in navigating the complexities of the home buying process. When compensated fairly, they are more incentivized to facilitate smooth transactions, leading to fewer hiccups and delays.

  9. Maximized Selling Potential: Ultimately, compensating buyer's agents maximizes the selling potential of the property. It ensures that the seller's listing receives the attention it deserves from both agents and buyers, increasing the likelihood of a successful sale at the best possible terms.

I always explain to my sellers that a buyers agent will look to see the nature of the compensation as they will deliberately try to knock down a possibility if they are not being compensated.

Reminds of the days of negotiating compensation while working a short pay-off for the seller to avoid a foreclosure... many times we had to go back to the buyer's broker to ask for a reduction in commission if they wanted their buyer to acquire this short sell.

It is insane that the NAR got us into the mess we are in! We didn’t need mandatory clear cooperation

I wonder how many agents will have one commission price for agents they like or the in house  rate and the other agent rate.  How will anyone know?
