Real Estate Commission Rebates

Home Buyers: Get a Commission Rebate!

When you buy a home with Jansen Team, we share a portion of our commission with you, so you can get thousands of dollars back without sacrificing great service.

How Real Estate Commissions Work at Jansen Team

Your refund will be calculated based on the purchase price of the home. The more expensive the home, the greater the refund. See our Commission Rebate Chart below.

Why Do We Give Away Commission Money?

That's a great question, and you may hear that a "discount" or "commission rebate" realtor is unskilled, or unqualified. In reality, we have been in business for many years and we are one of the top selling real estate teams in Orange County. We have sold over 50 million dollars of property in the last few years.

It is not common for a full service broker to share their commission with their buyers. We began early in 2010, after the federal and state governments cancelled their real estate tax rebate assistance programs. We were working with a lot of buyers, helping them to find and buy a home. At that time, we had many buyers who could not find "their perfect dream home" in time to take advantage of the credits. So we decided to do something about it. We provided a "commission rebate" from our own pockets to all those buyers who qualified but missed the deadline. This program was so successful for us, and our clients, that we decided to expand it to current buyers and it continues to this day. Commission Rebate Shadow

How About Rebates for Short Sales?

In a short sale, the commission paid is decided by one or more lenders who are taking a loss on the sale. We often do not know how much commission will be paid until the bank's letter of approval is received near the end of the transaction. Short sale lenders are very concerned that neither the buyer nor seller receive any funds related to the transaction, so rebates are not usually possible. Occasionally, they will allow a broker to pay for specific closing costs, home warranty, repairs, etc.

Home Sellers: Get a Commission Rebate!

Make more profit when selling your home. What started out as a way to financially assist sellers to go from their current house to the next has evolved into the Jansen Team Listing Rebate. This is a full-service listing agreement with internet marketing, open houses, and advertising to get the best price possible for you sale.

Jansen Team Commission Rebate House

We sold this home for $30,000 over its appraised price after only three weeks on the market. The clients then bought a new home with us. The total Commission Rebates were $28,675!

How Much is the Rebate I Will Receive?

To be fair, it is exactly the same as the buyer's rebate: For homes over $1,450,000 the rebate is 1.25% of the final sales price; from $950,000 to $1,450,000, the rebate is 1.0%; $450,000 to $950,000, it's 0.75%; and for $250,000 to $450,000, it's 0.5%.

Are you Selling One House and Buying Another?

If you conduct two home transactions within 12 months, whether it be buying or selling, the commission rebate percentage will go up, being based upon the total amount of both transactions. So if you sell a house for $750,000 and buy another for $800,000, then the rebate percentage will increase to 1.25% for both transactions.

Are Commission Rebates Legal?

In California, Commission Rebates are legal. Infact, the U.S. Department of Justice states, "Rebates can save consumers several thousand dollars in a single transaction." See details.
