What is a Agency Fee?
Cost required when buying and selling real estate- Agency fee
If you trade real estate through a real estate agent, you must pay the prescribed brokerage fee (intermediary fee) to the real estate agent. The maximum amount of brokerage fees is set by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport Notification.
When requesting a real estate agent to sell or purchase real estate, we conclude an intermediary contract with the real estate agent. The intermediary contract defines the period and conditions of the request, the amount of intermediary fee, etc. Brokerage fees are often paid half the amount when a sales contract is concluded and half the amount when the balance is paid.

*¹ Amount not including consumption tax
Brokerage fee when condominium sale is completed for 30 million yen
(1) Principle calculation method *When calculating the brokerage fee, use a separate calculation.
2 million yen x 5.5% = 110,000 yen ････a
(4 million yen to 2 million yen) x 4.4% = 88,000 yen ････b
(30 million yen-4 million yen) x 3.3% = 858,000 yen...c
Total a+b+c = 1,056,000 yen
② Quick calculation method
30 million yen x 3.3% + 66,000 yen = 1,056,000 yen
Therefore, the maximum amount of brokerage fee (including consumption tax, etc.) will be 1056,000 yen when a real estate agent requests brokerage and the sale is completed for 30 million yen.
