The Compensation Conversation

How to Avoid ‘Steering’ in a Post-Settlement World

“I don’t have to offer commission to a buyer agent—why should I?” This simple seller question—one that is likely to become more common every day—is a potential minefield. In the aftermath of the National Association of REALTORS®’ (NAR) settlement agreement, which will mandate the removal of compensation from MLSs starting next month, agents quickly pointed to these thorny conversations regarding compensation. What can or can’t you say when speaking about offers of compensation? And how do you communicate frankly with clients, who are relying on you to guide them, if you aren’t allowed to address these issues? While worries about this issue are well-founded, in this month’s cover story, we take a deep dive into the new era of buyer agency.
