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 your accepted offer price.
To purchase rental properties, for the lease amount of money, it will be critical to set a purchase, negotiation, and savings strategy in place, before placing the offer. Play the short video below to learn more!

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 TAX FREE, CASH rebate 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.
