Are you currently looking to buy a home in the state of Maryland?

In fact, we are one of the very few residential real estate agents in Maryland publicly advertising refunds for home buyers.
What is a Home Buyer Refund?
A home buyer refund is similar to refunds you might see with other types of purchases of goods or services. Typically, this involves an incentive, or additional reason, for a buyer to take make a purchase. A common example is when a buyer of a vehicle receives a cash credit against the purchase price at the time of sale. While the purchase of a home is more complex the refund principle remains the same.
Home buyer refunds are offered in many states across the country as an incentive for the home buyer to use a broker’s services. These incentives range from including cash-back, complimentary home inspections, discounts on closing costs, or perhaps gift cards for home remodeling services through a local contractor.
