6 - Buyers Rebate Process

California Home Buyers Rebate Program

The Buyers Rebate Process

Too good to be true? Our Rebate Program is free and does not obligate you in any way.  However, in order to participate in our rebate program, you must present your rebate offer certificate to the listing agent or a new home sales rep.  This certificate will function as an explanation to a listing agent or new builder that you learned about their property through us and are eligible to receive a real estate rebate at closing. If you do not request the rebate form, from Messick Team, prior to arranging your 1st showing appointment, you will not be eligible for a rebate.

  1. Enter your information & basic criteria.

  2. Browse the listings we send to you based on your criteria.

  3. View the properties you are interested in.

  4. Identify your “next home“.

  5. Let us help you negotiate the  Contract.

  6. Close on the purchase of your new home.

  7. Enjoy the Savings! Your rebate can be credited at closing or rebated in CASH!

Searching for Your Home

Viewing A Property
  • Traditional realtors typically get compensated 2% to 3% when they are working with a client who is buying a home. This compensates them for their time, effort and expenses related to driving clients around for showings.

  • Because we are rebating a large amount of our commission to you, we charge a small home viewing fee to our Buyer Rebate clients. When you have found a property that you are interested in viewing. This viewing fee is based on where you are looking to purchase a home.
Important Showing Instructions:
  • We MUST be the first agent to show you the inside of the property!

  • You can always check out the house and the local neighborhood via a “drive-by”, however, if you want to see the inside of the house you need to let the listing agent know you are working with a Messick Team agent.

  • If another real estate company shows you the property, you will NOT qualify for the cash rebate.
How can I receive the rebate?
  • You can get cash (a check payable to you) at closing from the closing company.

  • You can apply the rebate toward your real estate prepaid taxes & insurance and mortgage closing costs.

  • You can use the rebate to reduce your purchase price as well!  This is done outside of the ALTA/HUD we negotiate the Seller to reduce the commission and purchase price down accordingly.

  • On a new construction sale, you can use the rebate toward an upgrade you didn’t think you could afford such as a pool, granite countertops, etc.
