How To Deal With Real Estate Agents

Real estate agents work for private companies that rent or sell apartments. In the U.S., real estate agents are used mainly for home sales.

Estate agents charge a commission for helping you find an apartment. The seller is normally paid by commission, which depends on the price of the property itself (apartment or house).

If you want to rent an apartment you can also use the services of a Realtor, but this is not very common. It is best that you do it on your own.

If you use a Realtor to find a rental apartment you will have to pay the agent's fee when signing the contract. The commission will depend on the length of rental and can be from half a month to two months rent.

Some agents will try to charge you a deposit for their services, but we recommend you pay nothing until you have found an apartment or have signed the contract, they may try to keep the money but ultimately did not find what you want.
