## How to calculate the commission

A realtor commission is typically expressed as a percentage - for example, a real estate agent may collect a 5% commission on every successful transaction. It works in an analogical manner as the regular commission:

- Determine the commission as a percentage of transaction value - here, P = 5%.
- Find out the value of the transaction - for example, V = $10,000.
- Calculate the realtor fee, using the following formula:
`C = V * P/100`

. In our example, commission`C = $10,000 * 5/100 = $500`

. - The real estate owner receives a sum equal to the transaction value minus commission. So, his income is equal to
`I = V - C`

, and in our example`I = $10,000 - $500 = $9,500`

.
