Does a Buyer Pay Realtor Fees?

I was recently contacted by a Buyer from out of State and they wanted to know my fees for helping them find a home. Most realtors in the state of Georgia do not normally charge Buyer fees as we are paid by the seller. That’s providing if the seller is paying commission costs associated with selling the home. If there is not a pre-set commission from the seller, then the realtor may charge a buyer fee, according to whatever terms were previously laid out in the Exclusive Buyer’s Agreement.  This is an agreement between the agent and buyer that speaks to the terms of their working relationship.


If you or someone you know is in the market to purchase or sell a home, please contact me.
