Why Should I use New Home Rebates in Texas?

What seperates us from our competitors is that we give our clients FULL service even though we are rebating some of our commission. Most discount brokers do not offer any type of assistance when they rebate their commissions. Also, having an Agent represent you gives you added protection throughout the buying process and doesn't add anything to your sales price. 

I'm ready for my Rebate. What do I do next?

The next step is to Register for your rebate and then start searching for a new home! If you need a list of available communities let us know and we will provide you with one. Bring your Registration Cards with you and don't be afraid to ask questions to the builder sales counselors. 

Once you find the right home and are ready to move forward contact your assigned agent immediately to ensure you don't lose the house to another buyer.
