I received an email from a reader, Pete, this week asking about commissions when the listing agent and buyer’s agent both work for the same real estate broker. Pete wondered if the commission the seller pays would be adjustable in such a situation. Mostly likely, no, for several reasons, Pete.
Note, this is not the same situation as dual agency when the same agent represents both the buyer and seller. For my thoughts on dual agency read my post “Be Wary of Dual Agency with Your REALTOR®”
