Who pays broker fee in Dallas Texas

3 Replies

I always list my rentals on Craigslist. In NYC, I see a lot of rentals asking tenants to pay the 1 month broker fee. Is this the same in Dallas Texas ?

This agent I met told me it’s more common for owners to pay broker fee than Tenant. My property is in a Class A neighborhood north of Dallas suburb. Just want to ask other RE professionals.

 In Dallas the owner will pay realtors fees.

Prospective tenant would be charge an application fee for credit check/background check etc.

But typically a realtor will charge you 1 month rent for leasing out a place.
