How Much Can I Earn

A sales associates income is based on a number of factors:

1. The number of transactions in a year

2. The average price range of those transactions

3. The commission paid by the homeowner

4. The commission split you receive from your Broker

For calculation purposes using the following:

$200,000 Sale Price

 

Seller list/sells property for 6% of the sale price or $12,000

 

Commission amount split between Brokers

 

$6,000 Listing Broker / $6,000 Selling Broker

Commission examples:

Brokers offering a fixed 50/50 split

$200,000 sale price x 3% (one side) = $6,000

$6,000 x 50% (split) = $3,000/per deal*

*Before any transaction/fee amounts charged by the Broker

Brokers offering a progressive split 50% through 80%

- 60/40 split used for demonstration purposes- 

$200,000 sale price x 3% (one side) = $6,000

$6,000 x 60% (split) = $3,600/per deal*

*Before any transaction/fee amounts charged by the Broker

Brokers offering a fixed 90/10 split

$200,000 sale price x 3% (one side) = $6,000

$6,000 x 90% (split) = $5,400/per deal*

*Before any transaction/fee amounts charged by the Broker

Generally speaking

The lower the split the less out of pocket cost to the sales associate.

The higher the split the more out of pocket cost to the sales associate.
