There are a couple of reasons… One, many agents that could offer the rebate do not because they are stuck in the old way of doing things. Another reason is that many Real Estate agencies simply cannot afford to offer rebates. In the traditional Real Estate model, the Real Estate Agency is owned by a Broker / Owner with Real Estate Agents / REALTORS® working under them. They have high overhead to cover retail office space, managers, operations staff, franchise fees, etc., etc. Any commissions earned are split between the Broker/Owner and the Real Estate Agents / REALTORS®. When a client does the search and visits the model homes themselves, they are greatly reducing our time and resources. This helps us reduce our overhead, and we pass the savings on to you.
