Home Sales Fundamentals: What Every Homeowner Should Know


3 Ways to Use Real Estate Rebates in New Homes

As you seek a real estate agent for your home buying needs, you should consider an agent who offers rebate real estate. A rebate real estate on a home purchase includes a percentage of the commission offered directly to you after the house closes. In many cases, the rebate comes in the form of a direct cash payment. 

Learn some of the ways to use cash payments to invest in your new home and get off on the right foot as you enjoy the house. 

1. Furniture & Appliances

The cost of a new house often does not include the furniture and appliances needed to fill the home. Use some of the cash to purchase brand-new items to fill your home. The extra money you receive from a real estate rebate will give you a lot of options as you choose furnishings for the home.

For example, you may be able to afford a more energy-efficient smart fridge that has extra features and can help cut down on electricity costs. Shop around for furniture deals and spread the money around to really help fill up rooms.

2. First Mortgage Payments

When you move into a new house, you will suddenly find yourself with a new monthly mortgage payment. Instead of the burden of bills right away, consider using your home rebate as a direct mortgage payment. If the rebate is large enough, you could end up covering mortgage payments for a few months.

When you reduce your monthly budget, you will have more opportunities to save money and not have to worry as much about month-to-month payments. In some cases, you could make extra payments on the mortgage and help reduce the interest rate. Calculate the best options to see what works with your rebate amount.

3. Alternative Energy Options

Invest the money you receive into home options that can help you save money in the long run. For example, you could invest in an alternative energy option for your home like solar panels. The solar panels will reduce your energy costs. In some areas, you may have the option for a buy-back program where you donate extra energy out to the grid and get paid.

The rebate will help you afford solar panels and transform the way you use electricity in the home. Every little difference counts, and a reduction in energy costs can save you a lot of money every year.

Look into real estate rebates to see how much cash you could get back on a new home construction or purchase. Contact a realty company such as Crawford Realty Inc with any questions.

Home Sales Fundamentals: What Every Homeowner Should Know

When I decided to sell my first house, I had no idea how complex the process was going to be. From meeting with several real estate agents to completing the listing and scheduling open houses, it was more demanding than I thought. When it came time to entertain offers, I was at a loss for how to evaluate each one objectively and I made some mistakes that I wish I'd known better about. Now that we've left the closing table, I wanted to create this site to help others who may be new to listing a home. Read through what I've learned so that you can be better prepared for the process yourself.
