Residential properties such as homes, townhouses, villas and condominiums between $100,000 and $500,000.
We charge a flat fee of only $7,500 which is paid at closing. $2,500 is for the listing services we provide and $5,000 is paid to the buyer's agent. There are no upfront fees or additional fees added at closing.
Yes, agents sell homes in Port St Lucie everyday where the commission is less than $5,000 (for example a $150,000 home with 3% buyers agent commission is $4,500). It's the same amount of work for an agent to sell a $150,000 home as it is to sell a $300,000 home, therefore a flat fee of $5,000 for the buyer's agent is acceptable. Also, agents can't avoid showing buyers homes due to the amount of the commission as buyers typically find the homes they want to view themselves by searching for homes for sale on the Internet, then they tell their agent which homes they want to view.
Yes, if you are more comfortable paying a percentage of the sale price to the buyer's agent that is fine. You will still receive our listing services for a flat fee of $2,500 which will still save you thousands of dollars.

When you purchase a home utilizing our services you will receive the entire amount of our commission above $5,000 that we receive at closing from the seller or listing broker.
The manner in which the commission is paid to you is determined by your lender (if applicable) so it meets their guidelines. There are numerous ways to receive the commission; a credit to you at closing so it pays for your closing costs, reduce the amount of your home loan or a reduction of the purchase price. We would love to give you cash back after closing but most lender’s won’t allow it. When you get pre-approved for a home loan ask your lender how the credit can be applied. If you are a cash buyer you will simply bring less cash to closing as the credit will be applied to the balance due.
You must get pre-approved for a home loan through Danny Poulos of the Elite Lending Team at Milestone Mortgage (561) 575-5626. You do not need to utilize Danny Poulos for financing, however we do require you get pre-approved through him as we want to make sure you can obtain a home loan when we find you a home to purchase. If you are a cash buyer this does not apply, however you must show proof of funds available to pay cash.
The exact amount depends on the purchase price and commission offered by the seller or listing broker. Most commissions are a percentage (typically 2.5% to 3%) of the purchase price.
Yes, it is in Florida. Even the United State Department of Justice has a web page dedicated to credits/rebates. Rebates Make Buying a Home Less Expensive. You do need to make your lender aware that you are receiving a credit as this could have an effect on your loan terms.
You should contact a tax professional, however a ruling from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service stated that real estate brokers do not have to issue Form 1099 to customers that receive commission refunds because such amounts generally are not taxable as income.
