1.5% Cash Back Rebate
The Bay Area real estate market is both hyper-competitive and expensive. Savvy real estate buyers look for every advantage to navigate the competition and to make Bay Area home ownership possible and more affordable.
Our 1.5% cash back buyer’s rebate adds up to tens of thousands of dollars in savings. Some of our clients put their rebate towards paying down their mortgage. Others use it for renovations and upgrades to their home. And some use it to stretch on price for their dream home.
Buy The Right Home at the Best Price
We bring data, analysis and insight to valuing a home, so you have confidence when deciding the right price to offer. We use our expert negotiation skills to navigate the new construction offer process, ensuring that our clients end up with the best possible outcome.
Whatsmore, unlike other buying agents who push their clients to offer the listing prices so they can collect their commission and move on to the next client, we are more concerned with our clients’ best interest, and work with our clients to ensure they buy the right home at the right price.
Data-Driven Valuation Tools
“What is this home worth and what is the best price we can buy it for?” is a question we get asked a lot. While other real estate agents seem to pluck a random number out of thin air (usually a very high number), we bring data and analytical rigour to valuing a home.
For each community you’re interested in, we provide data on what comparable new homes have been selling for, and the price range that we think the home can be bought for.
Transparency and Insight
Builders will prepare a packet of disclosures about the home and the community. These disclosure packets contain a lot of vital information. Unfortunately, they are long (200+ pages) and dense, which doesn’t make for fun, relaxing reading.
Unlocked helps you understand the disclosures through our Disclosure Review Summary (example DRS). We diligently read through the entire disclosure packet and catalog every issue we see, as well as give our assessment as to the level of risk of each issues (and provide the page number so you can reference).
We also summarise our risk assessment of the six major reports in the disclosure packet, allowing you to quickly hone in on the key issues.
When you’re ready to submit an offer, we’ll help you put your best foot forward. We’ll help you understand the level of demand for that community, and discuss with you the right offer price and terms based on how desirable the community is to you.
We are one of the most active brokerages in the Bay Area, so we have often recently negotiated deals with the same salespeople at the community our clients are interested. We use that insight, as well as other data signals specific to the community you’re interested in, to give you guidance on your likelihood of success at different price points.
