Vancouver Commission Calculator Real Estate

How much are real estate fees in Vancouver, BC?

I charge a real estate commission of 7% on the 1st $100,000 and 2.5% on the balance of the sale price for properties in Vancouver.

Around HALF (3.125% on the FIRST $100K & 1.1625% on the balance) of the 7% on the 1st $100,000 and 2.5% on the balance is payable to a buyers agent who brings the seller an offer that completes at the Land Titles Office.

According to Canada’s Competition Act, there we Realtors are not supposed to say there is a standard real estate commission.

Real Estate commissions and the net proceeds (ie the amount a Seller receives from a real estate sale after costs) are often confusing for prospective property Sellers in Vancouver.

Most Sellers aren’t sure about how much commission they will have to pay (Check out my great video on what I charge for Real Estate Commissions) and how much tax (GST/HST) will be payable on the real estate commission fee once the property sells.

This calculator clears up this confusion!

  1. Hello. On top of the realtor’s commission there is yet another commission not accounted for the in the online calculator. The BC Public Guardian and Trustee gets a commission ON TOP of the realtor’s commission, when a property in its hands through an estate it manages happens to be sold. It would be very interesting to add to the calculator the commission that also goes to the BC PGT, with separate GST for that item.

    1. Hi Carolann,

      Good to hear from you!

      Thanks for the feedback.

      This commission calculator is for run of the mill transactions.

      Feel free to shoot me an email with more information on the situation you’re dealing with.


  2. Hello

    I may not be calculating things correctly but your commission calculator doesn’t seem to align with the percentages in your description. Your calculator is showing $15,913 for your commission. Why?

    If the first 100,000 is 7% = $7,000 and then 900,000 is 2.5% = 22,500…total = $29,500. Again, the calulator is showing me $15,913 which is also a really odd number given the really rounded numbers in your formula.

    Can you tell me if I am calculating something incorrectly please?

    thank you

    1. Hi Gary,

      Good to hear from you.

      Thank you for the feedback!

      Can you let me know the sale price you put in so I can try to see what the issue is?


    2. Hi Gary

      Just saw your post… The calculator splits the commission between the agents representing the buyer and the seller. For a $1,000,000 sale, you should see 2 commissions listed: $15,913 to the seller’s agent and $13,588 to the buyer’s agent for a total of $23,501 (the extra $1 would be rounding error).

      Hope that helps!

  3. hi.

    Question – what are the other deductions made from the pay out? I know someone who was in a 70-30 split but was charged extra for “1%”, “general expenses”, deal fee, donation . After everything, he got like 50% of the commission which is not a lot already since it is presale..

    1. Hi Ar,

      Good to hear from you.

      I can’t comment on other Realtors commissions, but I charge what is in the calculator above.

      What are your thoughts?


  4. Hey Mike, great calculator. I’ve been using it for years. I freaked out a few months ago when it wouldn’t load for a few days. Do you have a tip jar of some sort I can donate to help you keep it going?
