Real estate Brokers and their agents split their commission. In a highly competitive market, agents will work under a brokerage firm that gives them the highest split. So, brokerage firms strive to give more of the commission to the agents. But real estate brokerage firms employ administrative personnel to handle certain duties, and they charge an additional fee, in addition to the commission, to help pay for that overhead. The fees often range from $250 to $500 per transaction. Charging such a transaction fee may be a valid business decision and does not conflict with Florida law. However, depending on the circumstances, the fees could violate federal law (click here to find more).
FPA Enterprises does NOT charge additional “transaction fees”.
