Step 1 – Search for your future home.
Look online and drive around the neighborhoods you want to live in
You do the initial legwork and identify a house you want to make an offer on. We write the offer and handle all the negotiations and paperwork. An agent representing a buyer almost always gets 3% of the purchase price. We give you 2%, and we keep 1%. If the commission offered is less than 3%, your rebate is correspondingly less. For example, if the commission is 2.5%, we still get 1% and you get 1.5%.
Any property in Texas will be eligible for the Rebate.
(I.e. new build, duplex, town home, empty lot, etc)
Search for a property online.
Search for properties online using local Property Search options on our website, or use Realtor.com. Some custom property search options allow you to save the results of your searches and pick up where you left off simply by logging in. You can also program them to send you emails to alert you of new listings that match your criteria.
Drive around in your favorite neighborhood.
You can eliminate a house or two from your shopping list by simply driving by it. Sometimes you catch an open house and get some free snacks too!
Buying a New Home
Getting your 2% rebate when buying a new home is the easiest of all.
We have a special section devoted to new homes on our website at New Home 2% Rebate. There are complete instructions for making sure you get your rebate as well as links to all the major builder websites.
We have some great resources on our website for finding out more about neighborhoods, schools, or a particular property. Browse Neighborhood Information Links, and Tax Appraisal Districts and get familiar with the information available.
Step 2 – Make a short list of possible homes and schedule showings.
Most good listing agents will show their listings. Some won’t want to, especially after you tell them you are working with another agent.
Some agents will want you to sign something before they will show you a home. DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING!! They may be trying to get you to commit to hiring them as your agent!
If you are having problems getting in to see a particular house, or have any questions at all about this program, please call us.
Step 3 – Let us do some homework and write an offer!
We have Agents ready to answer questions and put in an offer for you 12 hours a day, 7 days a week! 1-800-219-9444
Your agent will pull some comparable sales from the MLS in the neighborhood and discuss strategies and the best offer price with you. After submitting the offer, your agent will follow up and negotiate the offer.
Step 4 – Acceptance of offer.
You will receive all necessary documents to review and sign if needed. Your assigned Agent will give you a list of important contract dates, deadlines and tasks needed to be completed by you to meet all the lender and title requirements.
Throughout the transaction your Agent will continue to negotiate, and assist you in scheduling appraisers, inspectors or any other professionals needed to make sure everything runs smoothly and that any hiccups are handled.
Read over our transaction guide to know more about the process and steps in a transaction.
Step 5 – Closing and Funding – It’s Yours!
At this point everything is complete.
Your Agent and the title company will make sure everything is done to ensure that your move in date will be honored.
As soon as the sellers pay us the buyer agent commission of 3%, we will immediately issue you the 2% Rebate!
Enjoy your dream home and the huge 2% Rebate.
