See the "Rebates" tab on the home page!  

                 When we represent the buyer in a transaction, we offer Cash Back! We will rebate a portion of our commission even on new homes! Rebates depend on buyer's legwork and as long as the sales price is above $100,000 and it is lender approved. If not, then we will negotiate the commission according to what is being offered. All rebates are required on the HUD-1 (closing statement).

               Yes.
               
               Can I use this rebate towards my closing costs?
               
               Absolutely, or reduce your mortgage rate (if the lender allows it). We are here to help people purchase a home and save money. This is your money to spend however you see fit.                  
               
               What Rebates are offered?
               
               We offer rebates on new homes and resales. A rebate of 2.5% is offered on a new home, as long as the Builder offers a 3% commission to the Broker.  If the commission being offered is less, then we adjust the rebate accordingly.  On resales we offer 2%, as long as the seller is offering a 3% commission.  There are a lot of steps to buying a house and it is our job to make this as simple as possible.
               
               What are some of the steps for purchasing a home?
               
               Getting pre-approved from a lender, finding the right home, making an offer, the negotiations, inspections, insurance, homeowner warranties and the closing steps.
               
               Is there anything else I should know as a buyer?
               
               Yes, we ask that you receive a pre-approval letter or letter of commitment from a lender before making any offers on a home. Be sure it is a pre-approval letter and not a pre-qualification letter.
               
               What is the difference between a pre-approval letter and a pre-qualifying letter?
               
               A pre-qualifying letter only states that you have given the lender verbal information. A pre-approval letter means you have provided documentation verifying income etc.
