Its our first home purchase in Maryland, USA.

Our realtor agreed to give us 2% kickback (towards closing cost) and she keeps 1% from the 3% commission she gets.

If base price of our home is 400K, shouldn't we be getting $8K from her? She is giving us less than $7K.

Is it because of taxes or something else?

    Ask for an accounting of the amount. i.e. to see her calculations. – Chris W. Rea Sep 3 '15 at 15:46
  • My realtor just informed me that 15% goes to the agency which she represents, in this case its ReMax. – hmajumdar Sep 3 '15 at 17:17

    Did she prorate the 15%? It's $1800 so did she take off $1200 or the entire amount? Still, she should have made the distribution clear up-front. The amount she owes the agency is her responsibility, not yours. – mkennedy Sep 4 '15 at 17:59
