How to earn Buyer Real Estate Rebate/Closing Gift at Closing!
How to begin: Just give us a call and let’s get the ball rolling!
If you have already found a home you would like to preview, just provide us with the MLS# or property information. We can look up the history of the property and verify the status, MLS history, public records as well as provide a copy of the property disclosures prior to viewing the home.
We will handle placing the offer, negotiating the best deal, handling all paperwork, and protecting your interests.
50% Rebate - what we make is a blessing to us, and we will split it with you.
Almost all MLS listed properties offer a 2.7-3.5% buyer’s agent commission. Whatever commission we get, we rebate 50% to you in the form of a credit towards your closing costs. CAVEAT: This is mostly based on your finding the home you want to make an offer on. Our business hours are generally 8 - 5, M - F and Sat. mornings. Due to a handicap, I am not really in a position to be able to show properties, or leave the office as I wish I could, or work around the clock anymore. (See more below)

The rest of this page is devoted to the 5 steps to get your 50% rebate
Step 1 – Search for your future home.
Look online and drive around the neighborhoods you want to live in
You do the initial legwork and identify a house you want to make an offer on. We write the offer and handle all the negotiations and paperwork. An agent representing a buyer almost always gets 2.7% of the purchase price. We give you 50%, and we keep 50%. If the commission offered is less than 2.7%, your rebate is correspondingly less.
Any MLS listed property in Tennesse will be eligible for the Rebate.
(I.e. new build, duplex, town home, empty lot, etc)
Search for a property online.
Search for properties online using Realtor.com. Some custom property search options allow you to save the results of your searches and pick up where you left off simply by logging in. You can also program them to send you emails to alert you of new listings that match your criteria.
Drive around in your favorite neighborhood.
You can eliminate a house or two from your shopping list by simply driving by it. Sometimes you catch an open house and get some free snacks too!
Buying a New Home
Getting your 50% rebate when buying a new home is the easiest of all.
Step 2 – Make a short list of possible homes and schedule showings.
Most good listing agents will show their listings. Some won’t want to, especially after you tell them you are working with another agent. (Very important note: Identify yourself as a customer of Martin Properties as buying agent. If you misrepresent yourself, neither you nor the buying agent will receive any commission and rebate).
Some agents will want you to sign something before they will show you a home. DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING!! They may be trying to get you to commit to hiring them as your agent!
If you are having problems getting in to see a particular house, or have any questions at all about this program, please call us.
Step 3 – Let us do some homework and write an offer!
We have Agents ready to answer questions and put in an offer for you! 615-973-8970
Your agent will pull some comparable sales from the MLS in the neighborhood and discuss strategies and the best offer price with you. After submitting the offer, your agent will follow up and negotiate the offer.
Step 4 – Acceptance of offer.
You will receive all necessary documents to review and sign if needed. Your assigned Agent will give you a list of important contract dates, deadlines and tasks needed to be completed by you to meet all the lender and title requirements.
Throughout the transaction your Agent will continue to negotiate, and assist you in scheduling appraisers, inspectors or any other professionals needed to make sure everything runs smoothly and that any hiccups are handled.
Step 5 – Closing and Funding – It’s Yours!
At this point everything is complete.
Your Agent and the title company will make sure everything is done to ensure that your move in date will be honored.
As soon as the sellers pay us the buyer agent commission of 2.7%, we will immediately issue you the 50% Rebate!
Enjoy your dream home and the huge 50% Rebate.

The buying agent's agreement must be completed, signed, and sent back to us to receive your buyer's rebate. Remember that when viewing a home and speaking with the selling agent, you need to let them know that you are working with a Martin Properties buying agent. It is the only way to be able to receive the rebate from your buying agent's commission.
What Is a Buyer Rebate Program?
Our new home rebate program is a great way to put money in your pocket or towards closing costs when purchasing a home. The new home rebate is derived from a 6% commission that may be paid by the seller in a home sales transaction. When you sign up with us, 3% of that 6% commission will be received by us. We then give you, in the form of a closing cost credit, 50% of that 3% commission. We have the highest paying Buyer Rebate Program in the state of TN. No other company offers more than us.
And remember, this will cost you NOTHING. Our philosophy is that we share the commission with you in the form of a rebate for home purchases because you are doing most of the research and work finding the home that is best for you.
After you've found a home you're interested in buying, we will place your offer, help negotiate counteroffers, get an acceptance of contract, complete legal forms, and schedule your closing.
