This is our secret sauce. For Buyers this allows us to pay agents for every showing. Additionally, the upfront payment separates serious clients from the “time wasters”.
Assuming there is a 3% Buyers agent commission, you have a choice, let an agent keep the 3% or you keep it. We give Fat-Free Buyers credit at closing for 100% of the Buyers Agent commission minus $3,000. (the remainder of our fee).
Of course, it is…You may rebate any portion of your commission to a party to the transaction, as long as you make appropriate disclosures “to all interested parties.” This should include any person or entity involved in the deal. (Rule 61J2-10.028(2), Florida Administrative Code. Link to FloridaRealtors.org
As stated above the commission credit must be disclosed to your lender. You may encounter an issue with FHA & VA loans. Please check with your lender before entering your credit card information.
The main difference is YOU search for your home online. We do virtually everything your traditional agent does with a twist. You’ll be matched with a licensed showing agent to get you in the door. I, Scott Fleischer, am your agent. I handle the questions, concerns, paperwork, and negotiations. Once under contract, I remain your advisor till you walk through your new front door.
