Buying a New Construction Home?
Get a Rebate When you Purchase a New Construction Home
Are you planning to buy a new construction home? Let us know before you visit a new construction home sales rep so we can set up an appointment for you, get you registered, and discuss with the sales rep on getting you a rebate.
Register a Purple Tree Realty agent with the builder's sales rep so we can help you understand the contract, stay on top of the deadlines, and be there for you during the walk through inspections. We will also negotiate at least a 1% rebate of the base sales price for you! When you visit a builder's sales office, it is important that you include one of our names (Sue Florsch or Brett Herbert) as your Realtor on the registration card to ensure you receive the rebate. It is a common misconception when purchasing a new construction home that if you don’t have realtor representation, the builder will discount the price of the home. When in fact, if a buyer does not use their own buyer’s agent, the sales price still remains the same and the builder’s sales rep may get a higher commission or the funds just remain in the builders marketing fund.
Why Use Us When Purchasing a New Construction Home?
The builder’s sales agent represents the builder, they do not represent “you”, the consumer.
Also, since we have a seasoned professional home inspector on our team, you will be informed of any issues that may arise during a new construction and what to watch out for.
We can help save you money in the form of a rebate. Bring less money to closing or put the rebate towards new items you may need for your new home!

*Buyer rebates are based on a commission of 3.5% paid by the builder when you purchase a home through a builder's sales office and when we have not shown you any pre-owned homes. This rebate is for the client who knows from the start that they want a new construction home. The 1% rebate will be reflected as a credit on your closing settlement statement prepared by the title company. Rebate amounts may be limited by your lender, therefore it would be in your best interest to inform your loan officer of the rebate as soon as possible.
