Toronto Real Estate Questions Answered: What is the Standard Commission?


There really isn’t a Standard Real Estate Commission in Toronto.  The word Standard Commission is a real no no.  That goes against competition laws.  Each individual REALTOR® sets their own commission.  Things to remember:

  • Don’t worry about how much you are paying your agent.

  • You should be more interested in what your agent is going to do for you.

  • Some REALTORS® charge a typical commission and then offer part of that commission the buyer agent.

  • Some offer a flat rate for the listing and a flat rate for the buyer.

  • You should interview your potential REALTORS® and make an informed decision as to who you wish to work on.

  • Don’t make your big decision based on commission alone.
