Why are some properties sold with commission and others are not?

While the maximum real estate commission is regulated by the different individual states in Germany, the commission on individual properties are based on the discretion of the seller or real estate agent.

New built properties are often sold directly by the project developer and they often times forego the real estate commission.

Tip: Be careful, sometimes the prices have the real estate commissions built into the property. While this is good for you as a buyer if you lack the equity to cover the purchase, you may run into problems when your mortgage application is submitted and the lender appraises the value of the property.
