NEW BUILD PROPERTY REFERRAL
In this specific referral situation, you’ll refer any customer or yourself to purchase a new build property whereby you’ll sign the “builder referral commission agreement”. Typically a builder offers a 3% referral commission on the sales price, minus upgrades. At closing you’ll earn 88% of the total referral commission paid by the builder. Example…$10,000 referral commission earned = $1,200 admin fee, and YOU’LL KEEP $8,800!
