Leslie Lerner Properties offers buyers a unique, rebated, money-saving commission structure when purchasing a home. When buying a home, purchasers can save money in the following ways:
Leslie Lerner Properties understands that technology has provided us with greater opportunities to shop for real estate listings online, visiting various websites featuring MLS listings. With this in mind, we have created a tiered commission schedule that will save you money by doing some of the legwork yourself. This is how it works for homes over $200,000:
ONE (1) – THREE (3): If we accompany you to 1 to 3 home showings during the time we represent you and you fall in love with one of the homes, we will rebate 1.5% of the total Buyer’s Agent commission back to you on the final settlement statement at closing.
FOUR (4) – SIX (6): Sometimes it takes a little bit more time to find something you can’t live without, so if we don’t find the diamond in the rough within the first three showings, but we succeed by the sixth showing, we will rebate 1% of the total Buyer’s Agent commission back to you on the final settlement statement at closing.
MORE THAN SIX (6): Rarely does this happen since we can eliminate so many houses by studying the online information, but if we end up showing you over six houses during the duration of the house hunting process, we will not rebate the commission.
Clients participating in the Leslie Lerner commission rebate program will be provided the same first-class, friendly service as someone not receiving a rebate. A Buyer/Tenant Representation Agreement will be signed prior to any home showings. We are happy to represent all buyers, but clients referred by other agents and/or relocation companies requesting a referral fee will not be able to participate in the rebate program. Leslie Lerner Properties buyers receive:
