For Sellers > Questions
Q: Who pays Commissions?
A: Sellers customarily pay real estate commissions for both the buyer and the seller. Typically, the commission is split between the buyer's and seller's broker and is paid at closing. The brokers, after closing, pay their agent a portion of the split commission.
Q: What goes with a home when I sell?
A: In general, anything attached or fixed is considered a part of the sale. Light fixtures, window treatments/blinds, shelves, wall speakers, etc. stay with the home unless you specify in the contract that they don't. To be safe, remove anything you don't want to let go of prior to the first showing. Replace light fixtures, take down shelves, etc. when you prep your home for sale.
