Right from the beginning Builder Partner was developed to make the community with the highest level of Real Estate services for the lowest cost possible. Our Texas Best new home buyer discounts, from the beginning was based upon the now standard 3-4-5 step commission program offered to buyer agents from select new home builders. For buyers you get help with negotiations then receive half or more of our Agent Commission paid to you personally at Closing depending upon the services you consumed! To get our cash rebate you don’t have to use a certain Lender or be the first of “10″ clients in any given month or feel compelled to act by a certain time.
If you need to SELL your existing home first then Builder Partner shifts their Texas Best Buyer Cash Rebate towards listing fee reductions allowing you to sell your home through Builder Partner at a huge discount! Builder Partner’s “SellBuy Flexible Fee commission structure is designed to save you between 50% – 100% of the listing commission normally paid to sell your home through the MLS. And if you are on Builder Partner’s approved New Home Builder Move up program Builder Partner will guarantee up front to sell your home for FREE by waiving the ENTIRE 6%.
In nearly all cases Builder Partner’s Listing Discounts for our home sellers actually represents a higher total client savings when compared to our standard Cash Rebate, making Builder Partner even more valuable if you have a home to sell. Please note that Builder Partner’s listing discounts for home sellers are always in lieu of any advertised buyer cash rebate. Cash Rebates apply to BUYERS only. So whether you need to sell first or are a buyer with no house to sell, Builder Partner will save you money and guarantee your savings in writing!
Sell your existing home for $275K and buy a new home for $350K and the typical Listing Fee Commission of approximately $16,500 is on us! That means you turn a $16,500 expense into the equity you keep. Now how cool is that? Form many area new home buyers having this 6% headstart is crucial to their ability to justify selling their existing homes and buying new.
In exchange for these generous cash rebates we simply ask that our clients be prepared to do some of the initial legwork themselves by previewing potential neighborhoods and homes by driving to these locations for an outside look. Since the internet has made it easy for the public to search for a home from the comfort of their home computer, the Realtor is no longer needed in this primary phase of the home search. Many times homes and neighborhoods can be eliminated or added to the short list based upon the initial impression obtained by driving by. The time savings this provides us at Builder Partner enables us to provide the Builder Partner cash rebates that we do.
When you add up the savings you get from Builder Partner virtual real estate website, it is pretty impressive! When we say “No One Beats Our Rebates!” or Services, we mean it!
Sure in some cases that may seem to work, but how do you know you’re actually getting 3% off? How do you know what the real ‘Market Value’ should be on the house you want to buy? Focusing on the 3% Realtor® Commission could wind up costing you thousands of dollars more, and without representation financial mistakes are often made. These are mistakes you won’t know about until you try and sell.
A market savvy Realtor®on the other hand could negotiate a 5% to 15% price reduction on the same house based upon factors you may not be aware of, or suggest other home choice possibilities that represent savings that are more in line with your expectations. Overpaying for your house in the North Texas Real Estate Market or overlooking floor-plan configuration and energy considerations could be a sure way of LOSING MONEY when it comes time to SELL.
I think you will agree that helping you through a problem free purchase of an existing home is a job that needs to be done right and that is why it is necessary for me to limit cash rebates to 1% based upon a 3% Buyer Commission. If the Commission is less than 3% then the rebate would be eliminated at and below 2%. In certain circumstances Builder Partner can Rebate up to 1.5%.

If you choose a cash settlement please beware that there may be tax consequences associated with your rebate. If you need tax advice please consult with your tax professional.

Typical Rebates start at $1500 and go over $20,000 depending on the sales price of the home you buy. Keep in mind that our CASH BACK REBATES are in ADDITION to all seller/builder concessions or price reductions.
From my own experience I have found that it is not uncommon for a buyer to pay up to $10K, $20K or more than what the builder would have negotiated for. Builders want profits and they will surely work with you, but in the end they ultimately represent the builder’s financial interests before yours. Realtors on the other hand want to get the best deal for their clients. Smart Realtors know the market and provide advice that can save you a bundle.
Your Realtor’s® commission does 2 IMPORTANT THINGS for you:
