What’s the Buyer Rebate $ Incentive Program?

We will pay you a 1% rebate of the price of your new home at closing for the privilege of helping you buy your home. When buying a home, the seller pays us a commission. We give one-third of that commission back to you as an incentive to you and you save a lot of money. It is your money! You can use your incentive to:

  • Pay for inspections and appraisals to lower your closing costs.
  • Buy new furniture with your incentive check.
  • Anything else that comes to mind!

Let us guide you through the buying process.

  • Guide you through the home search process and set up a website for you that has up-to-date listings of homes that meet your criteria.
  • Setup showings and take you to see homes of your liking.
  • Estimate your buyer incentive and closing expenses.
  • Provide you a Buyer Representation Agreement that locks in your buyer incentive.
  • Help you find financing, get your pre-approval letter and lender financing approval.
  • Accompany you while viewing homes of interest.
