NAR Settlement Impact on Buyers

A better buying experience.

Amid the changes stemming from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) settlement, buyers, sellers, and agents may find themselves uncertain about the future of the real estate industry. But at Bock Realty Group, we’re not scrambling or shaken—we’re professional, experienced, and prepared to guide you through these changes with confidence.

A key misconception about the NAR settlement is that buyers will lose representation, but that’s simply not true. The primary change involves greater transparency regarding compensation for both buyer’s and listing agents, giving buyers more control over how agents are compensated.

This change also provides more flexibility for buyers regarding compensation payments. If you’d rather not pay agent compensation or fees in cash at closing, you can request to have them deducted from the sale proceeds. While processes might change, our goal at Bock Realty Group remains constant: to ensure a smooth and stress-free experience. Your agent can also help negotiate seller compensation so the commissions can be paid from seller proceeds.

If you have any questions or are planning to buy or sell a home, call or email us today. We’d be happy to discuss how we can help you navigate the market and secure the best deal in the most stress-free and convenient way possible.
