Is it normal for my realtor to charge a COVID 19 surcharge?

She is charging me fees to clean a property before I arrive for a viewing and saying I should pay for expensive COVID cleaning upon purchase up to $1700.

    No, it is not.  Find another realtor.

    No, that is NOT something you should have to pay for.  If your realtor "chooses" to clean, then the cost is hers.  Prospective buyers do not have to touch anything and if they are concerned, they can wear disposable gloves and a mask.

    I'd be finding a new realtor. There's like 9 on every block where I live. Find one that's not as greedy.

    That is one of those "Fees" places love to tack on.  Not much you can do about it.

      Wrong answer.  OP has full control of “doing something” about it....just say NO to paying the fee.  If the realtor wants to earn business and sell houses, they make sure the houses are ready to be shown.  The Realtor pays for the cleaning, not the client.  That’s just a business cost.
