    4 Myths About Real Estate Agents: Debunked

    Myth 1: Real Estate Agents Are Overpaid


    Debunked: Real estate agents earn commissions based on the sale of a property, typically around 3-6% of the sale price. While this may seem like a substantial amount, it's important to understand that agents often work long hours, invest in marketing, and cover various expenses related to the property sale.
