Hi Gavin,

Naima brings up a great point. Our Community Guidelines mandate that posts be added to our site in the correct format and since this really isn't a question it thus isn't appropriate in the Q&A section of Trulia Voices. This would make a great blog post however.

If you meant to ask a question, please clarify what information you are seeking. Otherwise, please remove this post and re-post this content as a blog. Blogging on Trulia is extremely easy and it's a snap to add links, photos or even YouTube videos.

Thank you,

Yes, it is legal. Bruce hit the nail on the head when he talked about it's use for a down payment. The buyer still has to come up with their own money for their down payment, but the Realtor can provide a Rebate and disclose it on the HUD.

Yes. If they are a principal in the transaction. It should be disclosed on the HUD in my opinion and probably agreed upon by the lendor if obtaining a loan. I would think most lenders would frown upon for example a 6% builder commission, then used to give the buyer a down payment of 3.5% and 2.5% selling commisssion to the realtor to avoid down payment requirements.

I believe that it only needs to be properly disclosed.
But I am mostly commenting to follow this topic.
