After your property is sold, your broker receives compensation only when the notarized deed is signed and the amount is taken from the final sale price. The 4% retribution better known as the commission is split equally between your listing broker (2%) and the broker who brings the buyer (collaborating broker) (2%). If your listing broker or a member of her team also represents the buyer, you will only have to pay 3.5%. This reduction will not be applicable if you receive multiple offers
