Want to know the secret to huge rebates?
It's simple – use the right tools, and work with the right partners.
First Entertainment has partnered with First Team® Real Estate to bring you a great service, our Cashback Real Estate Rebate Program. Not only does this program provide excellent home search assistance, but when First Entertainment members buy or sell a home using an agent from First Team, they'll automatically receive a rebate that could be in the THOUSANDS!*
How it Works
Once you're signed up for the program, the first thing we do is stack the deck in your favor. What's better than expert leading you through the real estate jungle? How about TWO experts assigned as your personal guides:
- A First Entertainment Loan Consultant for any mortgage needs you may have, plus
- A local First Team Agent to assist with your home search, purchase and/or sale.
- Even better, these hand-picked First Team Real Estate Agents have agreed to provide First Entertainment members expert home buying and selling services – and to pay a home rebate from their commissions. Multiply the agent's commission (typically 3% of the sale price of the home) by 20%, and that's your rebate amount. And that 20% rebate jumps to 25% if you both buy AND sell with your First Team Agent! Here's some examples to give you an idea of how much you can expect to typically get back:*
|HOME SALE PRICE||MEMBER REBATE|
|Examples based on 3% commission rate. Rebates subject to loan guidelines.|
Once your rebate is processed, you receive a check issued by First Team Real Estate within 60 days after close of escrow.
