PA Realtors®



Real estate agentIf you're a real estate agent, you know how important it is to estimate the seller closing costs. And if you're a home seller, you want a good estimate of how much you will net if you accept an offer to purchase your home.

Closing cost calculations can get confusing if there're seller assist and real estate commissions percentages involved in the sale. This seller calculator will not only estimate the seller's closing costs, but also "work backward" from a desired net. For example, let's say you desire a net amount of $100,000 at closing, and there's a seller assist of 6% and a real estate commission of 6%. Simply click down 6% seller assist and a commission of 6%, and change any of the suggested closing fees in column one. At the bottom of the page enter $100,000 into the SELLER DESIRES TO NET = box. All the costs will recalculate in column two.

Agents - click on the Print Option button on column one or two, then click on the Print Screen link to print the estimate. This calculator will make it much easier explaining the closing costs to the seller and negotiating with the listing agent . . . and you can do it online and over the phone!

Frequently Asked Questions About Real Estate Agents

Where can I find the approved Pennsylvania real estate schools?

The approved Pennsylvania real estate schools are listed on the real estate school page

Are Realtor® fees part of closing costs?

If the real estate commission is paid by the seller (which is usually the case), the cost will appear as a charge to the seller. If however, the buyer is paying the Realtor's® fees, the expense will be a closing cost to the buyer. 

Can a real estate agent prepare a contract of sale?

In Pennsylvania, yes.

Do buyers pay Realtor® fees?

Probably not. In Pennsylvania it is customary for the seller to pay the Realtor® fees. However, the payment is dictated by the sales contract.

How much commission do you pay a Realtor®?

The Realtor® commission is negotiable. The real estate agent will probably ask for a percentage of the sales price. If the anticipate sales price is low (i.e. $50,000), the real estate agent may ask for a minimum commission (i.e. $4,000 or more). Some real estate agents may "split" the commission based on the sales price. For example, let's say the sales price is $250,000. The agent could charge 7% on the first $100,000 ($7,000), 6% on the next $100,000 ($6,000) and 5% on any amount above $200,000 ($2,500).
