We are planning to buy a new house in Folsom area. When I called the builder, they were frowning upon offering discounts or upgrades if I don't bring in a realtor saving them 3% buyer agent commission. Typically, a builder would offer one of those from other family member's experiences. So, I have everything laid out, floor plan selected and planning to visit the model home. I think the work is slim to none for my buyer agent. So, I was looking for an agent who would come along with me and split the commission? When I talked around to few realtors, they offered me 50-60% cash back. I wanted to know if that cash back rate is normal considering there is not much to do for my agent compared to a used house. If you have any referral who would get me a good deal probably with negotiation with the builder on the new house price and/or cash back, I would really appreciate it.
