Calgary Real Estate Buyer's Incentive Promotion
We know you have a vast selection of Real Estate companies and Realtors to choose from when purchasing a home in the Calgary area. Simply put, we'll pay to get your business!
The vast majority of our clients buying Real Estate receive $1000 cash back, although sometimes they receive even more! But that's not all they receive. Our clients receive top notch service and expert buyer representation. The details of our promotion and services are outlined below but feel free to contact us if you still have questions.
$1000 Cash Back Promotion Details
The law in Alberta now requires all buyers to be under contract with their Realtors (called a Buyer Brokerage contract). That contract will outline the services you will receive and detail how the Realtor is to be paid. In our contracts, we agree to accept $1000 less than what is typically offered, passing that extra money onto you! Here's how that works:
Buying Calgary MLS Listings
All MLS listed properties offer commissions to the buyer's Realtor. The vast majority (about 90% or more) of the listings offer "3.5% of the first $100,000 plus 1.5% of the balance of the sale price as compensation to the Buyer's Realtor. We call this a "3.5/1.5" commission. We agree in writing to limit our commission to just "2.5/1.5" and any extra we receive is passed on to you. So in almost all cases, you'll receive $1000 cash back.
In some cases, you may even earn more. When sellers are in a competitive market they sometimes offer "bonus commissions". These are designed to attract Realtors to their listing as they will earn more from it, but because we limit our commissions, when you use us to buy the property all that bonus commission goes to you! So for example, if you purchased a property offering a 3.5/1.5 + $5000 bonus commission, you would receive $6000 cash back!
In those rare instances where you want to buy a home that is not offering at least 2.5/1.5 in compensation (such as a for sale by owner property) we can usually convince them to cover the commission in exchange for the offer, and only if they refused would any shortfall need to be paid by you directly. Of course, if you'd like, we can always exclude those homes from the ones we visit. There are more than enough homes to see (over 90% of all MLS listed homes) that will result in at least $1,000 cash back when you buy them.
Buying Calgary New Home Construction
Just like properties listed on the MLS, most Calgary builders also offer commissions to Realtors so you can can still take advantage of this offer but it is important that you engage us prior to going to the show home as we must register you with the builder during your first visit in order to qualify for this incentive.Back to Top
Receive Professional Buyer Representation
In addition to receiving cash, you will also receive top notch professional buyer representation! When you find the home you want to buy, we'll research the history of that home, and of the other similar home sales in the area to ensure you know what it's worth (many homes are ridiculously overpriced). We'll expertly prepare and explain the legal contracts that make up the offer to purchase, and we'll use our extra training in negotiation to help you get the home for the lowest possible price.
Your Realtor will be ABR© certified. The Accredited Buyer Representative designation is your assurance that your Realtor has taken specialized training to effectively protect the unique interests of Real Estate buyers.
Certified Negotiation Expert
Your Realtor has negotiated hundreds of Real Estate contracts in addition to completing multiple negotiation training courses and certifications. This experience will be brought to bear to help you get your home for the lowest possible price.
If your purchasing plans include condominiums, you'll be extra happy to hear that your Realtor is a Certified Condominium Specialist! Condominium transactions are much more complex than a typical residential transaction and condominium ownership has its own unique aspects of which you may not be aware. Having a specialist in your corner will not only protect your interests but also ensure you are fully aware of what to expect when purchasing condominiums.
