The end goal of this lawsuit is for “Buyer Agent Commissions” to be fully seen as a fee paid for and financed in the buyer’s loan.

For example, on a $1 million home with a 3% commission the

2020 was a unique one for real estate. Though the pandemic slowed the majority of the economy down, the housing sector boomed.
