Do Buyers Pay Realtor Commission?

Straight from Zillow:

” the seller is going to pay the commission whether or not there’s a buyer’s agent. For the buyer, then, there’s rarely any savings by going without an agent. Instead, the listing agent simply makes double the commission. There’s no savings to the seller, either, when the buyer doesn’t have an agent.” – Zillow.

It is not always the case, however, that the seller pays all commissions.  If you are purchasing a home where the seller has not offered a buyer’s agent commission and you have signed into an agreement with a Realtor, you may end up paying their fee.  Most of the time though, the seller pays all commissions!
