Anyone who hires an agent to buy or sell a property usually saves a lot of time and benefits from the agent's experience and expertise. Important to know: the broker's commission is a success fee. Only when the purchase contract is concluded is he entitled to the commission - usually agreed in the brokerage contract.
From December 23, 2020, the ordering principle for properties for sale, which previously only applied to rental apartments, will apply. This means that a shared brokerage commission between buyer and seller is implemented. The buyer of the property pays a maximum of half of the commission costs then, the other half must be paid by the seller.
