Do I have to offer a Buyer Agent Commission?

By Home Bay

If you work with Home Bay, our low, one-time fee replaces the commission you would typically be paying to a listing agent. But do you still have to pay commission to a buyer's agent? Read this post to learn.
Most of our sellers
choose to offer 2% to 3% to a buyer's agent. But it is your choice what to do here.
Understand that by not offering a buyer's agent commission, you will severely limit the number of buyers who tour and put in offers on your listing. Prospective buyer agents are likely to steer buyers away from your home if they see you're offering a low or no commission.
