How A Real Estate Transaction Works in Florida when you use a Realtor Chart! A Realtor will walk a home buyer or home seller through the process of purchasing a home. It is customary in the state of Florida for Realtor’s commission to be paid by the seller of a home that the buyer is purchasing. This means it is FREE in most cases to get representation by a Realtor for a buyer. So be a smart buyer and get a realtor and a good loan officer as soon as you start to look for a home. Always ask your realtor for a referral to a loan officer or lender before settling in on who you will use for financing. It is always a good idea to get more than one opinion on what your best interest rate and terms for a loan will be. In addition, your realtor can give you referrals to building inspectors and home insurance companies. When selecting a realtor always ask for a list of past clients reviews to make sure that they have a proven track record and have given good customer service to their past customers.
