Is Baron & Chestney Real Estate right for you? Baron & Chestney Real Estate brokers are proud to work with only those home buyers whose asset, credit, employment, and debt credentials make them truly "able" home buyers, as in the classic real estate term, "ready, willing, and able buyer". (Of course, we want our home buyers to be ready and willing, as well!) Our discount brokers are interested in working with potential home buyers who WILL be purchasing a home, soon-- as far as WHICH home goes, that's OUR job-- helping you find your "castle". The reward to you in meeting our criteria and using Baron & Chestney Real Estate to represent you as a buyer's broker in your purchase is, of course, our generous real estate commission rebate of up to 2% of the purchase price of the home that you choose.
Once you submit your asset, credit, employment, and debt information to a mortgage broker, real estate lending company, or financial institution and obtain a loan preapproval letter which you send to Baron & Chestney, one of our discount realtors will gladly represent you as a home buyer's broker. You will then receive our personalized service and expertise in screening only the finest San Francisco Bay Area homes for you, as well as our real estate expertise in negotiation and representation in presenting your offer and seeing the transaction all the way through to completion. Best of all, once the deal closes escrow, you will receive a home buyer's realtor cash rebate of up to 2%* of the purchase price of the home from Baron & Chestney Real Estate! (except if the property is a Baron & Chestney listing-- see notes below).
Yes, even brand new homes sold directly through new home builders may qualify, as well! Thinking about buying a brand new home from a home builder in a new development? Call us BEFORE you visit the model homes! Many home builders offer real estate broker commission incentives. In fact, as the real estate market cools, these realtor incentives can be quite substantial. The commission percentage amounts will of course vary from home builder to home builder, but the catch is ALWAYS that a real estate broker MUST accompany you on your very FIRST visit to the new development, to register you, and for the realtor to register with the builder, as well. Do not go see the model homes without calling us first! One of our discount brokers will check to see what incentives the builder may offer, and then we can arrange to accompany you on your first visit to see the model homes. If one of our discount commission realtors does not go with you, there will never be a chance for a realtor commission rebate. Once you put your name on the builder's list, there will be no real estate rebates for us, or for you.
Most of our real estate clients already own at least one home, if not several homes, and many own investment property, as well. We do represent home buyers on a non-commission basis only in the case of them being interested in the purchase of a home listed with Baron & Chestney Real Estate. (With the permission of the home seller, only, and with full disclosure to both parties of the fact that we are representing both home buyer and home seller).
However, as a home buyer, you are not restricted to Baron & Chestney Real Estate properties. One of our discount real estate brokers will be happy to represent you in making an offer on ANY property that is listed for sale, anywhere in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The exception to the rule exists because our discount commission real estate brokers do not work for free! If Baron & Chestney Real Estate represents both home buyer and home seller, we will only be receiving a 2% real estate commission from the home seller. We therefore cannot then hand that entire 2% realty commission over to the home buyer in the form of a real estate rebate. Our Baron & Chestney Real Estate discount real estate broker would make nothing at all! (Normally, Baron & Chestney Real Estate would get a 3% realty commission from the other side, which we would use to rebate 2% of the home sale price back to the home buyer. Under this example, this simply is not possible.) The only other exception is when the real estate listing agreement from another real estate agency specifies a realtor commission of less than 6% -- say a 5.5% real estate commission -- in which case the realtor rebate would be reduced accordingly. A Baron & Chestney Real estate discount realtor would only take a 1% real estate commission, and the remainder of our real estate commission split will go back to you, our client, as a home buyer rebate from Baron & Chestney Real Estate. In each and every case, though, you come out a big winner with Baron & Chestney Real Estate representing you as a home buyer. Home sellers will know that your offers to purchase their property carry a lot of weight when you are a Baron & Chestney Real Estate buyer, because you have already met our rigorous financial standards and been preapproved for your loan. Furthermore, because of our realtor rebate program, you will always get cash back after the close of escrow from Baron & Chestney Real Estate. At up to 2% of the purchase price of the home, this extra cash is your reward for using Baron & Chestney Real Estate to represent you as a home buyer's broker in the purchase the home of your choice, no matter which other real estate company the home is listed with.
