If the property is listed with a broker, the seller pays. That can be either the homeowner, the lender, or a combination of the two in a negotiated arrangement. None of this has anything to do with the buyer.

easy;look at the listing contract or bank contract. ALSO, do you have your own buyer's agent or are you using the seller's agent? HOPE you never ever use the listing agent's agent. [cause the law does not permit the listing agent to negotiate for a buyer!!!]

The seller signs a contract with their real estate agent. This contract would dictate the amount of commission the seller would pay for this real estate agent for selling their house. If another real estate agent sell the house the commission is split between the real estate agent that actually brought the buyer to the table and the real estate agent that listed the house for sale. Normally a buyer of the house would not be responsible for paying the commission in the purchase of a house. If you sign a contract with a real estate agent that require you to pay a commission to your real estate agent, you would not be required to pay any compensation to a real estate agent at all. It is a very rare occasion where a buyer would be required to pay a commission to a real estate agent. I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck. "FIGHT ON"
