Buy In Confidence With A Houston Realtor® – Houston Real Estate Agent
IN THE MARKET TO BUY A HOME?
Leslie Lerner Properties is not your traditional real estate agency. As a Houston flat fee Realtor® we are very modern in our thinking and know that you, the consumer, want to keep as much money in your wallet as possible. With that in mind, we have come up with a unique, rebated, money-saving commission structure. We always have to pay the cooperating real estate agent their full commission, but Leslie Lerner Properties will reduce your costs with flat fee listings and rebated real estate commissions. When buying a home, we can save you money in the following ways.
SHOP AT HOME FIRST
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 homes during the time we represent you and you fall in love with one of them, 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.
WHAT DO YOU GET FOR A REBATED COMMISSION RATE?
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:
- Accompanied showings of the real estate listings that you think could possibly be your new home.
- Contract / Repairs Negotiation
- Coordination of Inspectors and Closing Services
LET’S COMPARE BY DOING THE MATH
