It's simple! You can buy your dream home at the best price without being coerced into paying high commission.
If you don’t use ShopProp you are essentially giving away 2.5%-3% of the sales price to an old school agent or even a new firm claiming to be modern firm because of a slick search tool or website.. Remember when a property is listed for sale (including new construction) there is typically a 2.5-3% commission that is going to be paid to the agent that represents you. Our clients receive the majority of that commission back.
Rebates can be used toward closing costs, prepays, take it off the price of a home, pay down your loan principal or we can issue you a check after closing. All rebates should be disclosed to your lender.
New Construction, Listing Agent and other Buyers Agent conduct– If you are buying new construction please make sure you or we have registered “ShopProp as your buyers agent on the first contact with the Agent on site or the builder may try to keep your commission. We may even have to accompany you on your second visit to the site for you to get the full commission back. On the first contact, it is a good idea to let other buyers agents and listing agents know you are working with another Agent.
