What is the difference between a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent?
You might hear these terms during the homebuying process. The buyer’s agent is a real estate agent working with the homebuyer (you). They represent you during the purchase of your home.
The person selling their home usually has a real estate agent as well. They’re called the seller’s agent or listing agent. The seller’s agent helps the seller market and sell the home. The fees or commission used to pay for both the buyer’s and the seller’s agent usually come from the sales proceeds at settlement and are paid for by the seller.
