Buyer Agency Agreement

When you’re ready to begin your home search, you’ll be prompted to sign a buyer agency agreement. Sign the agreement and start touring homes!

Cash Back at Closing

Traditional buyer agents collect 3% of the sale price as their compensation*. We’re giving half back to you as a bonus at closing!

What’s the Catch?

There’s no catch! It just shouldn’t cost 3% of the sale price to help you find your next home.

Following the recent National Association of Realtors® settlement (read more here), we’re likely to see commission costs decrease. We’ve been leading the charge of lower commissions for consumers since the beginning. With home affordability near an all-time low, and decreased costs on the horizon, we’re here to help NOW.

How much will I get back?
On average, home buyers receive $5,000-$10,000 back from the Home Buyer Rebate, but it varies! Home sellers typically offer commissions between 2-3% of the sale price to the buyer agent. We give half of this commission back to the buyer. Your actual rebate will depend on the final sale price of the home and the size of the commission that is offered by the seller.
Do you charge a minimum?
Yes. We collect 1% of the sale as a minimum commission. In most situations, the seller offers the buyer broker a 3% commission. In this situation, you could expect to receive 1.5% back. In other situations, sellers offer reduced commissions to buyer brokers. For example, if the seller is only offering a 1.5% commission, we will keep our minimum 1% commission and give the remaining back to you.
Why do I have to sign the buyer agency agreement?

Following the NAR settlement in the landmark Sitzer|Burnett case, all MLS-affiliated real estate agents will be required to provide a buyer agency agreement to their clients before touring homes. This is slated to go into effect in mid-July 2024.

The result of the agreement is an informed buyer. In a standard agreement, buyers will be informed of the service they will be provided and how much it will cost. We believe buyers will benefit from the transparency and therefore decided to start using the agreements immediately. Note: our agreement doesn’t “lock you in” to our service—you can cancel at any time up until going under contract on your new home.

Is this rebate available everywhere?

Unfortunately, some states do not allow rebates to be offered, or limit how much can be offered. Based on this, we’re unable to offer the buyer rebate in Alabama, Alaska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Oregon, or Tennessee. In addition, certain lending and insurance criteria may impact the rebate received.

Who qualifies for the rebate?

If you’re starting your home search or you’re already searching with us, you qualify! Unfortunately, we cannot offer the rebate to anyone already under contract on or before April 2nd, 2024.
