The aforementioned agent said: “It was originally planned to be implemented last year, but due to the impact of the epidemic, it only started this year. Lianjia has implemented this model in some cities such as Shanghai. We have already sold several houses at this rate.” Deyou and 21st Century Real Estate on the shell house search platform have also implemented this rule. An agent of Chongqing Deyou said that since February 18, they have implemented the rate standard of no higher than 1% for the seller and no higher than 2% for the buyer. “Based on our return visits to the owners, most people All are acceptable.” A broker of Chongqing 21st Century Real Estate also said that the new rate standard has been implemented. A broker of a store in Zhengzhou Lianjia stated that the 3% price list has been issued, but it has not been implemented, and the 2% standard is still implemented. Warrant agency fees and loan service fees are each charged 2,000 yuan.

While maintaining the buyer’s 2% agency fee unchanged, canceling the 1.5% service fee of the buyer’s total loan amount and increasing the seller’s agency fee by 1% seems to reduce the buyer’s agency fees and increase the seller’s cost. However, the above-mentioned broker of Chongqing 21st Century Real Estate said frankly that according to the new rate standard, the intermediary fee has increased somewhat. Although the seller has to bear 1% of the agency fee, under normal circumstances, this money is still paid by the buyer. Another broker of Zhengzhou Lianjia said that it is not certain who will pay the seller’s 1% agency fee. “It may be the seller or the buyer. If it is the seller, the owner may add the money to the house. On the paragraph.”
