3 - Development Buyers Rebate

California Home Buyers Rebate Program

New Development Home Buyer Rebate Program

New development home builders offer Agents a "referral fee" for referring their Home Buyer clients to them and registering with their development on the first visit. The "referral fee" offered by the developer is typically 2% to 3% of the final purchase price of the home. The "referral fee" is only paid out to the Agent who initially brought you to the development and registered you on your first visit. From there you will work directly with the developer's staff going forward if you decide to purchase one of their "new construction" homes.

The Messick Team offers the highest new development Home Buyers rebate. We will rebate back up to 75% of the commission we receive up. The maximum buyer rebate is capped at 2.5% of the total purchase price.

The Messick Team has, and can, offer buyer rebates on new development homes throughout California. The referral can be done over the phone, but we understand when dealing with an amount this large you may want a face-to-face meeting. With that in mind, we are located in Los Angeles and Mission Viejo and do most of our business in the Orange County, Los Angeles County, San Diego County, and the Inland Empire. We can meet anywhere with a pre-scheduled appointment.

The areas below represent only a fraction of the locations where our new development home buyer rebates are available. Again, the offer above stands for any new construction development in California, and if you call or text 800-883-6905, we can verify the amount of refund you would receive before we meet up.

Buyer Rebates are legal throughout California and many other states. (US Dept of Justice - Rebates Make Buying a Home Less Expensive) The commission/referral fee we receive will be in writing and fully disclosed on your purchase contract with the developer. The developer will issue a 1099 to us for the referral they payout to our company. We will then instruct the escrow officer to apply the rebate towards your closing costs. If there is a remaining balance of the rebate we will write a check to you directly. (for example, if your rebate is $15,000 and your closing costs are $11,000, we will pay the $11,000 closing costs, give you $4000 cash, and 1099 you for the $4000 cash).
