Saving Investors Thousands when Buying with our Commission FREEServices!
No matter what a Realtor® might tell you to get you to hire them, the truth is that you, the buyer, are forced to pay all the commissions to both agents in the transaction though higher purchase prices- commissions that the seller agreed to at time of listing their residence for sale.
Our new Commission FREEReal Estate Services were designed to provided investor buyers a flexible and low-cost alternative to the unethical practice of indefensible commissions charged by most Realtors® while, putting thousands of dollars back in their pockets- where it belongs.

Returning Your Savings To You!
Investor Buyers that hire us using our Traditional Full-Service Investor Buyer Representation, have many options for how they can receive the benefit of their savings. A few of the most common are:
receiving a check for 100% of the net commissions we receive from the listing agency- after closing
shift some of the savings back into the deal when surprises arise and the deal starts to crash (see the section below: Our Investor Buyer Strategies Get Crashing Deals Closed!)
reduce the sales price by the estimated savings- thus lowering monthly payment, taxes, and closing costs
use some of the savings and put it towards closing costs (as allowed by lender) with the balance of savings returned to you after closing
At our first meeting, we will work with you to develop a savings strategy plan with you so that you may get the most benefit from your savings for your situation. And, when things change, you can instantly shift and change your strategy at a moment's notice. You can also view items A7, B1-4, and D 2-3 on our FAQ's Commission FREE Services page.

Below is a chart of estimated savings.
My Customized Bundle of Investor Buyer Services- This service allows investor buyers to enter the buying process at any time, picking and choosing only those activities they want help with from where they are- to close. Ex 1: You found a property to purchase and wants us to represent them from this point forward till close. Ex 2: You just had a property inspection conducted and would like us to only present and renegotiate the deal for you based on the findings. Services selected and completed using this service option are billed at $150 an hour- and it doesn't matter what your property sells for. Your buyer investor savings will be calculated during the first strategy meeting with an MBG agent and after discussing the costs and benefits of activity selection.
Consulting Services- This service is for investor buyers looking for honest answers to their questions and guidance throughout the real estate buying process. These services are billed at a rate of $200 per hour. Investor buyer savings will be the difference between the percent of sales price commissions charged by Realtors® and the total hourly consulting fees paid- and that could be as little as one hour of service!

To the right you will find an example of our `a la carte menu showing the twenty eight activities that must be completed to buy your dream home.

Because our Commission FREEServices are based on you paying a fair hourly fee for those items you select, and we complete for you, you can enter and exit the process, and add or remove activities at any time without penalty. Below we provide a couple scenarios of situations that investor buyers might find themselves at some point in the selling process and how they might use our `a la carte menu of services to help them close the deal.
Scenario 1: You think you found a property... You have been looking for a while now and found a great rental property to add to your portfolio. You are now looking for an agent to represent you in helping you buy your rental property from where YOU are to close. Using our `a la carte menu, you might select our Customized Bundle of Investor Seller Services, and enter the process on line 12- which would save you an additional $1,000 had you started the service from the beginning.
Scenario 2: Managing Inspections. Because of previous experience and knowledge, this time you decided to buy your rental property on your own- without any help. However, yourself, and your lender, require certain inspections to be done by a qualified inspector to protect you and reduce lender risk. You could use some help to find a highly qualified inspection that meets all state requirements, schedule the inspection, review the inspection report when completed, and renegotiate the current contact based on those findings. In this situation, you could hire us to complete just those activities for you, entering the process on line 19 and exiting the process on line 21 once all the negotiations were completed.
Saving Even More with Our Investor Buyer Strategies that Get Crashing Deals Closed!

For investor buyers that use our Commission FREE Real Estate Services to purchase their residential rental property, we have a full range of strategies that we can use on the buyer's behalf to keep the deal from crashing- and get the property purchased!
