New Home Buyer Rebates


Many new home buyers seem to be do-it-yourselfers. They know what they want and they don't need any help.  They certainly don't need a real estate agent making a big commission for doing seemingly nothing.

They will wait until they are ready to sign the contract before they bring up the fact that they aren't using a buyer's agent and therefore want a reduction in sales price commensurate to the commission that the builder won't be paying.

Nine times out of ten, the sales agent will tell them that that is out of the question. They explain that those commissions come from the overall marketing budget.  That marketing budget anticipates a certain percentage of buyers not having agents representing them.  So there really isn't any extra money sitting there to be given to them.  If they don't end up using all of that marketing budget by the completion of the development, that money is either profit or bonuses for the development sales agents.  But they can't give it away ahead of time to buyers without agents.

After showing a little indignation, the buyer will continue on and sign everything and go through the process by themselves even though they are paying the same as the next buyer who is getting help from their buyer's agent.

Here's a better way.

Tell them that you are working with Tim Maitski as your buyer's agent. 

Then call me up and  I can be there with you when your are ready to sign the contract.

Most of the time the builder is paying a buyer's agents a 3% commission.  On a $500,000 that works out to be $15,000.

I am willing to offer you a 50% commission rebate.

You get $7500 and I get $7500. The builder gets a satisfied buyer.  Everyone's happy.

I will give you any advice that you might want.  I will be there every step of the way, if that's what you want.

If you have some kind of aversion to real estate agents, that's fine too.  I am happy to stay in the background and be happy that I was able to save you a big chunk of money while making some money in the process.

Don't leave that money on the table.

Call me.

Where We Do Business

Our market area is in the north metro Atlanta area.  We service Cobb County, north Fulton County, Dekalb County, Forsyth County and Gwinnett County.  We are very familiar with Sandy Springs, Dunwoody, Marietta, Roswell, Alpharetta, Buckhead, and Midtown. 

We have sold homes inside the perimeter and outside the perimeter.  We can't know everything so for clients who want to look for property in Peachtree City, Newnan, Stone Mountain, Douglasville, Macon and areas further out we will gladly recommend a good agent who specializes in those areas.

We help buyers negotiate with builders for residential new construction houses. New houses in Atlanta are hot right now. We can represent you in the purchase of your new house built by any of the following builders: Torrey Homes, MDC Homes, Centex Homes, Pulte Homes, Morrison Homes, Ryland Homes, John Wieland Homes, Winmark Homes, Meridian Homes, John Willis Homes, Benchmark Homes and many more home builders.

We can help clients find short term apartments for rent but normally we don't work with clients who are just looking for rentals.  We do help clients find Atlanta condos.  We can also help you purchase HUD homes in Atlanta.  We are an authorized agent with them and have the HUD key to get into HUD homes.  We have access to foreclosure homes that banks want to sell.

We love showing executive homes and luxury homes. We always like to know how people find our site.  Send us an email and tell us which search term you used. Some terms that we might be found by are realty Atlanta, Ga homes, Atlanta realty, condos Atlanta, Atlanta realestate, Atlanta property, houses Atlanta, Atlanta realtors, Ga houses, or realtors Atlanta.  Maybe you found us by typing in Atlanta MLS listings, or Atlanta MLS search, or MLS Atlanta GA. Hopefully we don't come up under nursing homes or funeral homes.

It is always amazing to me how the Internet can allow total strangers to find each other and build new business relationships.  It truly is becoming a small, interconnected world.
