Realty Rebate for Charlotte Area Home Buyers

Terra Vista Realty employs full-service Realtors who can help you every step of the way in your home purchase. And for those who buy a home using the representation of Terra Vista Realty, we offer a rebate of up to 1.5% of the home's price. We have lower overhead costs than most traditional real estate agencies, and we pass the savings on to you in the form of a home buyer rebate. This can mean thousands of dollars in savings on the home you buy.

Here's how the real estate rebate works: In most home sales, the buyer does not pay for the commission fees of the buyer's agent. The commission is offered by the seller, and can vary somewhat from one real estate transaction to the next. However, for the vast majority of properties in the greater Charlotte area, the commission is 3%. We offer one half of this fee back to you, the buyer - it comes directly off your total cost at closing.

For example, let's say you buy a home for $400,000 through us, and the commission offered to the buyer's agent is 3%. Most real estate agents keep all of this money and use part of it to pay for their overhead costs - franchise fees, administrative overhead, agent's salary, advertising, etc. We have some of these kinds of costs too - we just have a lot fewer of them than most agents. So we pass a good portion of the money back to you. In the example above of a $400,000 purchase, you'd typically get $6,000 back as a credit at closing - even before trying to negotiate any money off the price with the seller.

Sound too good to be true? It's not. We offer a commission rebate to Charlotte-Area Homebuyers: 1) because we have low overhead costs and can afford to do this, and 2) to be more attractive to homebuyers than our competitors.

Please note: we extend this offer of up to a 1.5% commission rebate to buyers that are searching for properties priced at $300,000 and up. If you are looking for a property priced under $300,000, we can still offer you a rebate - but it would likely be a somewhat smaller one. Homes under $300,000 receive rebates on a sliding scale. Examples of typical rebates at given price points are below:

Example Price Example Commission Expected Buyer Rebate
$300,000 and up 3% 1.5%
$280,000 3% 1.4%
$225,000 3% 1%

What People Have to Say

Lyn Palmer exceeded all of our expectations. She truly listened to us to understand our needs and priorities… She was flexible and gave us plenty of her time during our stressful house-hunting trip. She was responsive to our calls and texts…We were very pleased with her service and delighted that we saved so much in the process. We can offer our unqualified recommendation. Thanks Lyn.

-Ryan and Brittany B.

Reduced fees definitely don't mean reduced service. Tom was fantastic to work with. We used his services as both a buyer's agent and a seller's agent. He gave us great advice and was very knowledgeable. He even crawled under our home to examine our foundation. We received an offer in about 15 days from listing our home. I would recommend Tom Palmer to anyone buying or selling a home.

-JoAnne H.

Terra Vista Realty was a pleasure to work with and exceeded our expectations. Put simply, we received twice the service for half the price. We bought and sold our homes with Lyn Palmer. She was professional, courteous, smart, organized and very timely with communication. She had our house under contract in 25 days. We chose Terra Vista for the discounted commission and were pleasantly surprised with the exceptional service.
