Default If you haven't bought your house yet!

We just found out about this neat Real estate service called Ziglu. If you buy your new home using them as your realtors they give you back 1/2 of the commission. So in the case of our purchase we are getting $3600 back on closing. Different builders pay different commissions. Tamarack for example pays 1.5%.

If you haven't already singed on the dotted line it's worth taking a look into it

By the way, this works with ANY real estate agent.

My past realtor was not as generous! I don't think they are all willing to give up half.

I don't think that is legal... it's more of an under the table thing.

Why wouldn't it be legal? Ziglu has it prominently displayed on their website. I doubt anyone would risk their real estate license over giving people half of "their" commission.

Oh yeah. I forgot about that. That is the most rediculous thing I have ever heard.

A lot of realtors do this as well. But be aware that not all builders pay commission to realtors.
