At Premier Listings, transparency is key. We believe that understanding how your realtor gets paid and the services they provide is essential to building trust and confidence during your home-buying journey.

 

How We Get Paid
Many agents avoid discussing their compensation, often suggesting their services are "free" because the payment comes from the seller's proceeds. We think you deserve a clear explanation.

Commission Structure



We get paid a percentage of the sale price at closing, usually around 3%. For example, if you buy a $400,000 home, we might get paid $12,000.

Time Investment



It can take days or months to close the right deal. On average, we dedicate 120 hours of service to each buyer, which equates to approximately $83 per hour.

Risk and Reward



If you don't end up buying a home, we get paid nothing. We invest our time and take on the risk upfront to ensure you find the perfect home.


What That Gets You

A dedicated buyer agent will perform hundreds of tasks for you.
Here are two of the most important:

Confidence in Your Decisions:
Our agents have the knowledge and skills to deeply evaluate the homes you consider.

Beyond just looking at past sale prices and conducting tours, we scrutinize seller disclosures and inspection reports, identifying potential issues and their significance.

The Best Deal Possible:

Our job is to help you make an informed decision on the price to offer, using our knowledge of the home, the local market, and our negotiation skills.

Negotiation is both an art and a science,

and we ensure you get the best possible terms and price.

Additional Services We Always Provide:

  • Managing documentation
  • Recommending trusted service providers
  • Navigating through counter-offers, contingencies, and timelines

Buying a home is a significant financial and emotional investment.

You deserve serious representation, and we’re here to deliver it.
