Frequently Asked Questions

On The Block believes that the whole process must be transparent, and as a bidder who is represented by a Realtor, you should know the associated costs. You will be able to review our Transparent Commission Policy which details how commissions are paid when you place a bid.

Commissions work the same as traditional real estate transactions for our auctions. The seller pays both the listing agent and the buyer's representative their commission on the property. Unlike almost all other real estate auction platforms globally, there is not a 'buyer's premium' or any additional cost to the bidder other than their bid. No cost in the process is hidden and that is important to all bidders' ability to make an informed decision. 

Through this process, realtors can be confident that they are protected in the same way that they are in a traditional transaction.
