Additional information:

  • For new construction homes, make sure you register me as your representative/ real estate agent at the builders sales office. I do not necessarily need to be present there but you definitely have to let the builders sales agent know that you’re represented by me upon first contact with any builder representative.

  • They usually ask you to register/sign in, that’s where you will need to let them know that I represent you.  Every builder has different informational requirements in order to pay commissions, let me know what information is required by your builder and I will work to get that over to them.

  • If you have already seen the model homes/ inventory homes before getting in touch with me, let me know and I will talk to the builder and see if they will register me as your agent and pay out buyer agent commissions. Some builders are flexible and we may still be able to work something out and get your credit.

  • The 2% rebate for new construction will only be applicable when the builder prepares the sales contract and most builders do prepare the contracts for the buyers, in few cases the builder may need the buyers agents to do the paperwork, prepare offers etc. in those cases the rebate will be 1% instead of 2%.  

  •  Rebates are only applicable for homes purchased for $250k or more.  Homes under $250K are eligible for a 1% rebate only.

  • If the seller does not offer the 3% buyer agent commission, the rebate will be reduced.

  • All rebates are subject to your lender’s approval, if you are taking a loan to finance the purchase. Please talk to your lender and find out more about rules regarding rebates and how the rebates can be applied to your closing costs.

  • We can recommend numerous lenders willing to work with all credit situations, who will allow you to utilize the rebate/ credit toward your closing costs! 

  • We pay our buyer clients at closing. The rebate is used as a credit towards the buyers closing costs. This helps buyers by reducing the amount of cash they need to bring to closing.

  • We provide all essential realtor services, including showings, negotiations and all paperwork related to the transaction. However, we do not deliver checks to the title company, and are not present at inspections (except as noted above) and closings and our clients prefer to get the huge rebates and get thousands of dollars in their hands in lieu of these type of non-value add services 

  • Before a showing, we expect that the buyer has a pre-approval letter from their lender if the purchase is being financed and also ready to make an offer on one of the homes shortlisted. If after the maximum agreed upon showings noted above you’re still not ready to put an offer, the rebate will be reduced by 0.5% in order for us to show you more homes.

  • Rebates are completely legal in Texas.

  • Please find out about LOAN PROGRAM CAPS and other rules regarding rebates from your lender to avoid losing out on excess credits. Also, for new construction homes talk to your builder and let him know about the rebate in case the builder is offering closing costs credit as well, being proactive and planning ahead will ensure that you don’t lose out.

  • Please be very careful when the builder offers credits to be applied to your closing costs. The builder’s credits will always be applied first and you may lose out on part of the rebate if it exceeds your actual closing costs. To avoid this scenario a reduction in the purchase price is always better than credit towards closing costs from the builder, our rebate will help you with that!

  • Start off by getting pre-approved with a lender. You can search for homes online (HAR, Zillow etc) based on your criteria. Then short list homes that you are truly interested in and that meet most of your needs. I will take appointments and show you the short listed homes (subject to the number of showings noted above). Once you’re ready to put an offer I’ll prepare all paperwork/ forms required which are required to be electronically signed by you. I’ll submit the signed offer to the listing agent, and needless to say will work on your behalf and negotiate the best deal for you. Even though I will not be present at the inspection, I will work to make sure any issues or concerns on the inspection report are addressed by the seller.
