Buying a New Construction Property with Unlocked (Old)

Unlocked works with Bay Area buyers looking to buy a new construction property. We help you navigate the home buying process, and give you a 2% Cash Back Rebate.

What services do you provide to new home buyers?

We provide start-to-finish services for buyers looking to buy a new construction property. We can help identify and prioritize the developments that best meet your needs, help select the right homesite based on your preferences, and help you navigate the negotiation, purchasing and closing processes.  We are with you, every step of the way.

Do you offer a buyer rebate?

Yes.  Unlocked was started to create a better buying experience for Bay Area home buyers.  As part of our mission, we offer the largest rebate to all Bay Area home buyers.  Generally, we rebate buyers 2% of the purchase price of their home.

The amount of the rebate is dependent on commission the builder pays the buyers’ agent.  So long as the builder is offering a minimum 2.5% commission to Unlocked, we rebate 2% to the buyer.  If the commission is lower than 2.5%, we reduce our 2% cash back rebate accordingly (for example, if the commission is 2.25%, we would rebate 1.75%).


On a $1,500,000 home, your 2% rebate would be $30,000.  That can be used to purchase additional upgrades for your new home, buy new furniture, or even buy a brand new car.

Which parts of the Bay Area do you cover?

We cover all of the Bay Area. We’ve worked with clients who were considering developments in the North Bay, East Bay, South Bay and San Francisco.

If you’re considering buying outside the Bay Area, please contact us and we’ll see if we are able to work with you.

Do I need a buyers’ agent when buying a new home?

Yes and no.  A lot of buyers work directly with the builder’s sales office to buy their new home. While the sales office representatives are generally very friendly and knowledgeable about the development, there are a few reasons why you should consider using Unlocked as your buyers’ agent.

Firstly, it is important to realize the sales office employees represent the builder and do not represent you as the buyer. Unlocked would represent you and ensure that you have an experience real estate agent looking out for your best interest.

Secondly, the cash back rebate! If you work without an agent, you will not receive any cash back rebate. However, if you work with Unlocked, we’ll rebate you 2% of the purchase price of your new home.

Thirdly, buying your new home is a big financial and emotional decision. It is prudent to have a professional real estate agent to guide you through the process and answer any questions you have along the way.

How do I work with Unlocked?

Simply, contact us and we can get started helping you buy your new construction home.  We will answer any questions you have and explain more about the home buying process.

Note, it is important that you pre-register your Unlocked agent as your agent prior to your first visit to a community's sales office. Some builders will not pay a commission if the buyers’ real estate agent was not registered before the first visit.

Can you provide a list of new construction projects in a particular city?

Yes. Please contact us and let us know which city you're looking to buy in. We can easily let you know of the new construction projects in that city, as well as where they are in their sales cycle.

Which builders have you worked with?

We've worked with all of the major Bay Area home builders, including D.R. Horton, Toll Brothers, K.B. Homes, Pulte, William Lyon, Shea Homes, Lennar, Taylor Morrison, TRI Point, The New Home Company and Meritage.

What does it cost to work with Unlocked?

Working with Unlocked is free! We are paid by the home builder through a commission. In addition to not costing you anything, we also offer you a cash back rebate of up to 2% of the purchase price of your new home.
