Free Service Explanations
This website contains various references to "Free" services. As this is a broad term, the following are clarifications of these "free" services.
If we represent you as a buyer, our services currently do not require payment from you. The seller pays our brokerage compensation as the selling brokerage which can range from a fixed fee to commission. This compensation information is available to you upon request as the buyer we represent in a real estate transaction. The source of the seller paid compensation can include the listing price, the negotiated purchase price by the buyer we represent or another source as defined by the seller.
If we represent you as a seller in a real estate transaction, our services require a listing contract which specifies compensation to be paid to the listing and selling brokerages. The seller defines the source of the compensation which will be paid upon the successful close of escrow.
New Home Construction
If we represent you as a buyer in a real estate transaction for new home construction, the builder provides our brokerage with the compensation amount that will be paid upon a successful close of escrow. We do not charge you as the buyer we represent for our buyer services to you.
