When you purchase a home utilizing our services you will receive the entire amount of our commission above $3,500 that we receive at closing from the seller or listing broker.
The manner in which the credit is paid to you is determined by your lender (if applicable) so it meets their guidelines, but typically the credit will be used to pay for your closing costs and pre-paids, such as homeowners insurance and property taxes. We would love to give you cash back after closing but most lender’s won’t allow it. When you get pre-approved for a home loan ask your lender how the credit can be applied. If you are a cash buyer you will simply bring less cash to closing as the credit will be applied to the balance due.
The exact amount depends on the purchase price and commission offered by the seller or listing broker. Most commissions are a percentage (typically 2.5% to 3%) of the purchase price. For more information Click Here.
