Realtor Commissions Credited for Closing Costs & Down Payment (Gift)

Realtors can credit their commissions toward recurring and non-recurring closing costs. This is well-known.

What many Realtors do not know is that they can “gift” all or a portion of their commission towards a down payment as long as the buyer is a relative. Almost anybody can be a relative, however.
