We Want You As A Happy ClientSo, here's the thing ...

We Want You ... As a client ... and we're able to Pay You Cash to join our Preferred Internet Client Club.

That's right, we will pay you $621 after you close on the purchase of a new or existing home with us. So, what's the catch? Surely, this has to be some terrible, dirty scam! Nobody else is offering to give you cash back when you purchase a home with their company!

Not only does this program cost you nothing, you will get a better buy GUARANTEED! And you will get $621 cash back after closing on your new home!

Picture of a $621 Bill

Most real estate agents will work with any buyer, with any qualifications, without first coming to a mutually beneficial agreement on terms of service for the buyer or compensation to the real estate company. At first glance, this is appealing to most buyers, as they have not considered all of the pitfalls and potential for harm that could come their way.

Why We Will Pay You To Do Business With Us

Most people do not know how much time and effort a real estate company invests in two hidden costs of the firm. These costs run so high that if the real estate company can avoid them, the cost of doing business is reduced and the level of job satisfaction that the real estate agent experiences goes through the roof. Want to know what these two hidden costs are?
  1. The cost of acquiring a new buyer for a home - Real estate companies spend a small fortune on marketing and advertising. It's a documented fact that some real estate companies pay out "referral fees" on more than 1/3rd of their sales in order to avoid having to spend so much money on marketing and advertising. So, why not just give the money directly to the buyer. Regardless of whom is paid, our company gets to work with another buyer ... we might as well reward the buyer instead of some other company!
  2. The cost (in time spent) educating a buyer on the real estate market and the home buying process - We know for a fact that we spend less time with our internet customers than we do with people who are not comfortable doing their own research.  And we have also found that educated buyers end up being happy buyers, so we know that we cannot skip this step. Therefore, we decided to encourage our customers to use our online tools, as they will be better educated and happier with the outcome.

Our Preferred Internet Clients commit to working with us and using our online tools to further their education of the process, as well as their knowledge of home values and market conditions in the Tallahassee housing market. In turn, we give them a healthy wad of cash to spend as wisely (or unwisely) as they choose after closing!

Conflict Of Interest For Uncontracted Agents

Did you ever wonder why home sellers get a written contract when they hire a real estate agent (company) for the job of selling their home, yet home buyers and most agents work without any sort of contract or performance guarantee?

Did you ever consider how large of a problem that this "trust me I'll help you" relationship has become with the advent of variable commissions in the MLS systems?

What? You didn't know that your "Buyer's Agent" gets paid different amounts for the different homes that you are being shown? So, if one house pays four times as much as another, could that agent be skewed in his or her thinking of which one you should buy? What if you wanted an opinion of value on each one in order to make a purchase decision?

The bottom line is that even real estate agents with the purest intentions do this business in order to earn a living and to "feed their family." It would be unwise to think that they would put you first, before the health and welfare of their family. This conflict of interest can be avoided, and it is simple enough to do with a Brokerage Services Agreement, just like we do here at Joe Manausa Real Estate!
