VA Transactions and Buyer Commissions Under Proposed MLS Changes

Real estate forums are filled with misconceptions about seller concessions and how they affect agent compensation in VA transactions. These misunderstandings can create challenges for both VA buyers and agents.

Challenges Faced by VA Buyers and Agents:

  • Many agents wrongly believe seller concessions can be used to cover buyers’ agent commissions. The NAR proposed settlement says otherwise.
  • VA loan officers worry VA buyers won’t be able to secure financing if they have to pay their buyer agent’s commission.
  • Many VA buyers and real estate agents don’t know the solution – EZ Real Estate Offer – exists.

NAR’s Proposed Settlement and Its Impact:

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) has introduced changes that directly affect buyer brokers and the landscape of VA transactions. Let’s take a look at them.

Changes to Buyer-Broker Agreements

Revised MLS regulations now require written agreements with buyers before touring homes. This shift adds complexity to transactions and emphasizes the importance of proactive communication with clients.

Seller Concession Changes

Agents will not be able to offer seller concessions to buyers’ agents on the MLS. You either need to offer these concessions on your own, or offer them directly to the buyer. Watch here to learn more.

Financing Challenges for VA Buyers

The NAR doesn’t have an answer on what updates will be made to help VA buyers. If buyers are expected to come up with more money to pay a commission to their agent, their affordability changes. They will not be able to finance this new burden unless they use a platform with a fee-based platform like EZ Real Estate Offer. Agents must navigate these challenges to ensure smooth transactions.
