How Much Do You Pay Upfront To Hire A Buyer Agent? 

Most buyer’s agents will ask for a proportion of their total fee to be paid upon signing the contract. This initial fee can range from $1,000 to 50% of the total fee payable. Often that fee is non-refundable and sometimes a portion is refundable if the purchase does not proceed. Non-refundable fees are paid to compensate buyer’s agents for the amount of time they have spent searching for properties. Also known as chargeable time, this non-refundable portion should be stipulated in the contract prior to signing. More questions? Check out Buyers Agents FAQ.
