It's That Simple.......
Answer: Yes, Rebates ARE LEGAL in Florida per Rule 61J2-10.028 (DOJ –Florida Allows Rebates) and are even encouraged by the United States Department of Justice (DOJ – Rebates Make Buying a Home Less Expensive)
Answer: In most cases the real estate agent commission is 3% (which is were your rebate comes from) so we pass to the customer the 2% rebate, now in a case where the builder increases the real estate commission above the 3% then we will pass the difference above 1% to the customer. Example Home Price = $500,000.00 X rebate(2%) = $10,000.00 rebate amount less the broker fee. If in the same scenario the real estate agent commission was set at 4% the total amount of the rebate will be $15,000.00 ($500,000.00 X 3%)
Answer: No, there is no additional or hidden fees to worry about.
Answer: Yes, the rebate program was designed with that purpose in mind. You go on your own time, at your own pace and without any body following you or pushing you a sale. However you should first register with us and let us know of any communities you’d like to visit before you visit them. Some communities and Builders require us to accompany you in person on your first visit. We will first contact the builders and find out their requirements for us to represent you. If you do visit any new home communities without us, be sure to let the Builder know you are working with me Silvio Diaz, PA from The K Company Realty and share a copy of our engagement letter with them.
Answer: No, our rebate program is available for the entire state of Florida and yes we work with all the builders as long as they pay a minimum of 3% commission to the real estate agents and/or brokers.
