How much are REALTOR fees?

REALTOR fees are technically up to the homeowner or the homebuyer. However, the custom for how much REALTOR fees are has become treated as law, which is 6% of the home sale price divided between both sides. Just like with the price of a home, how much you offer a REALTOR is negotiable, meaning they don’t have to accept if they feel the terms are unfair. At TRELORA, our agent fees are $3,000 in the Denver metro and $4,000 in the Seattle metro for the buyer or seller, regardless of the price of the home. REALTOR fees in Denver are commonly 3% for each side, and just recently the median home price in Denver reached over $500,000, which means that with a REALTOR a buyer or seller would pay $15,000 in commissions, while TRELORA would only charge $3,000 -$4,000 depending on what state you live in. So always remember that your REALTOR fees are up to you, and they are counting on you not negotiating.
