Our Rebate Program is Designed for Today’s Buyers
Our 2PC Rebate Program has been so successful because it’s designed for the smarter, more capable and resourceful, my-time-is-valuable, you. The residential real estate market has been constantly evolving to keep up with today’s pace. Over ten years ago, we decided the internet revolution warranted a drastic change in the agent-client relationship. The immediate resources necessary for buyers to start the process finding the perfect home have been available with the click of a button for a long time now. And the Do-It-Yourself spirit is what makes the 2PC Buyer Rebate Program work.
We want to highlight some of the developments in the new home purchasing environment we’re talking about:
- Google, Yahoo, and the National Association of Realtors (NAR) have built out Real Estate Search Engines containing detailed information on homes for sale for public listings by Realtors from local Multiple Listing Services
- The Zillow’s and Trulia’s create Housing Data Network Platforms making “public” tax and home data information freely available in organized and searchable interfaces
- Some For Sale By Owner Services Companies increase their online marketing reach by launching their own search-based online marketing programs at flat fee rates (offering a competitive alternative to paying a real estate agent’s commission)
- Real estate, mortgage, and related industry professionals blog about it, providing buyers with information relevant to purchasing decisions (information you used to depend on your real estate agent to give you)
The result? Today’s Realtor
Real estate agencies and their agents are spending more and more time, money, and resources competing for your attention online. And for many agents, this shift in focus is somewhat of a trade-off. Something simply has to give and we see it happening in a number of ways: no-service flat-fee MLS listings, semi-automated contract services, less open houses, discount-commission discount-service agreements and we believe, an average agent’s inability to adapt and specialize to create an even better agent-client relationship.
2PC Agents: Tomorrow’s Realtor
An agent’s power is in their ability to help you navigate the process of buying a home by avoiding potentially damaging pitfalls or decisions, negotiating the best price and most advantageous contracts possible for the home you want, and protecting your interests in ways you might not be able to. We find forward-looking agents that are excited about the positive changes happening in the industry and the opportunity to work with buyers that feel the same way. If you’d like to learn more:
