When selling your home, you want the process to go as smoothly as possible with the help of a trusted team to guide you. Naturally, you’ll want to get the most value for your property, too, for future investments or home purchases. Like purchasing a home, selling your home will include various fees. Most sales are completed with the assistance of a real estate agent or broker. These agents make their money by earning commission on each sale and only get paid once a home has sold. This commission is paid by the seller during closing.
