Can I buy a second home, land or an investment property?
Yes. The rebate will be offered regardless of what type of property or how you use your property.
How and when will I receive my rebate?
It will be provided to you approximately 5 days after closing as a check paid directly from my brokerage, 3 Options Realty. We do not pay the rebate in cash, cashiers check, or in the form of a price reduction. Sorry, no exceptions.
Do I have to sign an agreement to work with you and receive a rebate?
Yes. Eligibility for the rebate requires a signed Buyer's Brokerage and Rebate Agreement protecting all parties by spelling out the terms of the rebate and the agency relationship to the property buyer. This paperwork is required by law and must be returned to me in order to provide the rebate. If you decide that you do not want to work with me any longer, you can simply sign a cancellation form. No hidden charges, fees or arguments.
I'm already working with a buyer's agent. Can I still receive a rebate if I start working with you?
No. If you are already working with a buyer's agent and have a buyer's agency agreement, we cannot provide you with representation or the rebate until your arrangement has expired or has been cancelled. Call me to discuss: 678.671.6767
Can we visit open houses on our own without an agent?
Absolutely! In fact, I encourage it. Once you sign up with me and complete and return the required Buyer's Agency agreement, I can provide you with my business cards to hand to the hosting broker at the open houses you visit. You can also write my name down as your agent in their visitor log.
Is this a government program?
No. The rebate is provided by the real estate broker and is deducted from the commission paid by the seller to the real estate broker. Any one is eligible to receive the rebate provided they comply with the terms and conditions set forth by the brokerage agreement and state law.
Are foreclosures and/or short sale properties eligible for the rebate?
Unfortunately, no. Because of the tremendous amount of work and difficulty involved with these types of properties, it is not feasible to offer a rebate.
Is it legal to receive a rebate from a real estate agent?
Yes! In fact, it's illegal not to allow rebates. That's called "price fixing" and falls under the "anti-trust" provisions of federal law. State Real Estate Commissions around the country have been receiving a lot of scrutiny from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) because of their policies restricting rebates in real estate.
Are there any fees or costs charged by the agent to receive the rebate?
Absolutely not. No games, no gimmicks. Just real savings in the form of a commission rebate.
