We started UpNest (http://www.upnest.com) to help you compare top agents that compete to earn your business. Since agents compete for you, they offer their very best rates and services. You'll also get to "comparison shop" like you do for all the other things you usually pay for. It's free and there's no risk to try us out, Good luck! http://www.upnest.com
So contact me to get your rebate. The only stipulation is you must use a Better Homes of AHFR realtor. Thats me :) 610-952-5882 http://www.ShopPaHomes.com
"Commission rebate" isn't quite the language that most agents use. When looking to save money, you should look into lowering commission rates and negotiating commission.
Commission is always negotiable, and the Department of Justice even condones it as good competitive behavior among agents. Many agents are willing to be flexible on commission rates, but it's not something they like to advertise. And most clients are not very capable or comfortable with negotiating rates.
If you use UpNest, http://www.upnest.com, we will negotiate commission rates for you with our network of experienced agents. We created our online marketplace where home sellers can confidentially submit their homes, and multiple top local agents will compete to obtain your listing. Some agents lower their commission rates to stand out, and every agent that submits a proposal is an experienced agent, so it's not the same as working with a low grade discount brokerage.
Hope that helps!
You can google this to determine if it is legal there.
If I recall, all but 9 states allow rebating, but usually there are restrictions as to how this can be offered.
NJ was one of the last states to make it legal....but it doesn't seem to be a very common offer, at least not in my area.
If you are a buyers and looking for an agent to assist in the purchase of a home,, the you don't need to worry about commissions. They are paid by the seller.
Is there any reason you asked this question?
You should be getting referrals from friends and family and interviewing agents with lots of experience. Find someone who consistently does 30-40 transactions a year WITHOUT buying the buyer or seller and you will have someone who should be pretty good!

It is possible, with the willing property seller, to negotiate credit to you for part of your closing cost and there are additional programs that can provide grant funds toward a home purchase.
