The answer is No,  in many real estate transactions, the buyer does not directly pay the realtor fees. Typically, the seller is responsible for paying both the listing agent's commission (representing the seller) and the buyer's agent's commission (representing the buyer).

The commissions are usually calculated as a percentage of the final sale price of the property and are negotiated between the seller and the listing agent before the property is listed for sale. The seller's agent then shares a portion of their commission with the buyer's agent as compensation for bringing a buyer to the transaction.

However, it's important to note that real estate transactions can vary depending on the region and specific circumstances. In some cases, buyers may choose to hire a real estate agent and negotiate a fee arrangement directly with them. This is more common in commercial real estate or in situations where the buyer is seeking specialized services.

It's always advisable to clarify the commission structure and any potential costs involved with your real estate agent or broker before entering into a transaction.
