Save Money When Building Your Home

Unlike with resale homes, it actually costs you more to not use an agent when buying from a builder.

Builders do not offer discounts when you do not use an agent. Glass House will be your agent for a 1.5% flat commission. The remaining commission, usually 1.5%, is rebated back to the buyer. Get rewarded for taking the home search into your own hands. 

How The New Construction Rebate Process Works

Contact Usprocess-graphic_(2)

Fill out the form to the right to contact Khalil for a brief discussion about your current situation. There is no obligation, just a casual conversation and some free advice. We also are available by phone at 866-971-5608.

Register Glass House as Your Agent

When you fill out registration forms at new communities, make sure to indicate that you intend on working with an agent when you purchase a home. This allows you to visit communities on your own until you find one (or more) that you like. If you have already found a community you may still be able to use Glass House and get a rebate. 

Negotiating and Pricing

This is where we shine. Once you find a community you like (or have found one already) we become your agent and take over negotiations with the builder.  Khalil will work directly with you and the builder as well as accompany you when making offers and writing contracts. Khalil has experience with every major builder in the area and often has insider knowledge of the negotiating process. 

The Rebate

We charge a flat commission of 1.5% or $6,500, whichever is higher. The remaining commission is rebated back to you, usually 1.5% of the sales price. The rebate is credited to you at settlement toward your closing cost or in the form of a check after settlement with lender approval. Why leave this money on the table? 

"We worked with Khalil to look for a single family house in the Northern Virginia area and ultimately closed on a new construction in 2013. He proactively offered to step in on our behalf on a number of instances, and also proved to be an effective negotiator. Khalil responded with prompt action every time it was necessary, but never put any undue pressure on us to make decisions. His team also utilized current technology to make the process as efficient and painless for us as possible. Their 2% commission cash back was icing on the cake - it was quite helpful in defraying some of our closing costs and in setting up our new home after closing. We would gladly recommend Khalil as a realtor."

“We chose to work with Khalil because he focuses on exactly what is most important to us in a realtor: negotiating and closing a deal. We were happy to do most of the finding of a property ourselves, and were thrilled to find a top-notch realtor who charged a fee that actually reflected the way people buy houses in the Internet age. Khalil gave us great advice that saved us tens of thousands of dollars and worked tirelessly to help us close on our contract within a tight timeframe. We have paid three times as much in realtor fees in the past and never received the kind of true advocacy and professionalism we got from Khalil. We recommend him to all our friends and family and will use him again in the future.”
