When a property is listed for sale, the seller typically pays a 3% commission to the buyer’s real estate agent. Most real estate agents then keep all of the commission for themselves. When you use Equity First Realty® as your exclusive buyer’s agent and purchase a home, we don’t keep all of the commission – with the VHH Program we give you up to a 1.5% cash rebate on your home purchase or 1.5% for new construction.

By having an Equity First Realty® Realtor® as your agent, you are assured of great negotiating skills to get you the best price on your home, attention to detail to ensure your transaction is completed and handled correctly, plus up to a 1.5% cash rebate and 1.5% for new construction.

Complete details on the Buyer Rewards Rebate Program are outlined below. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us .

Please note that our Buyer Rewards Rebate applies to all homes listed for sale – including those listed with another real estate company and includes new construction as well as previously owned homes.

The Buyer Rewards Rebate Program significantly reduces the cost of buying a home. The United States Department of Justice approves of and encourages brokers to offer rewards and rebates to real estate buyers. According to a report by the United States Department of Justice, rewards programs such as cash rebates make buying real estate more affordable.
