Bottom line? The real estate market is changing. Sellers who sell their own homes can now save thousands of dollars! A typical real estate commission is 5% to 6%, which could mean about $10,000 to $12,000 on a $200,000 home if the sale involves both the seller’s and buyer’s agents. If you have to pay a buyer’s agent or the broker, that amount could be cut in half or very close to it, because the seller’s agent and buyer’s agent usually split the real estate commission.
