Great question! We offer personalized, one-on-one service and negotiate on your behalf for the best deal. Our negotiating doesn’t just stop after intense scrutiny of what your home price offer should be. We also help you with nontraditional bargaining, such as the cost of the escrow, title and homeowners insurance. We are also experts at negotiating price reductions or credits after the inspection of the home. Lastly, we rebate you 2% of the commission on the home when you bundle your purchase with one of our lowest-rate mortgage banks and we give a significant donation to your cause.
Simply enter your criteria into the search engine and go! Once you see a home you like, click on the “Schedule a Showing” bar and we will arrange a showing at your convenience.
Simply type in a zip code or a city in the search bar. Feel free to put in a maximum or a minimum price, how many bedrooms or simply just the city. The level of detail is up to you. It is that simple!
Yes. We all use the same directory as every real estate agent so you will see every property currently on the market.
CharityZill is your agent. You need no other agent. We take care of you from A to Z and we do it with love!
Yes, although you will not be able to receive the CharityZill buyer rebate and the cause donation as those funds would be allocated to your agent. CharityZill agents do not work on commission. That is why you are receiving this industry-first rebate and are able to direct a donation to your cause at no cost to you.
Usually you do not offer the asking price of the home unless it is in multiple offers. We will advise you on the best offer based on our criteria evaluations. Our patent-pending Offer Matrix™ is one-of-a-kind, and only CharityZill has it! In many cases buyers receive significant reductions not only in price but for title, escrow and home inspection. We have you covered.
To understand how you make money you must understand the way it is with other home search sites. CharityZill has broken the mold. Other search sites pay a realtor the 2.5% commission but charge the realtor a monthly fee to advertise on their site. CharityZill does not pay commissions and we do not have realtors pay to advertise. We pay you and donate to your cause. It is that simple.
The rebate is simple. You can choose to receive a check after closing or apply it to your closing costs. You can also use all or part of the rebate to obtain a below market interest rate, saving you significant dollars for the life for the loan.
The check is cut to you the day after closing.
Yes. You are not obligated to have CharityZill donate to any particular nonprofit organization but we do reserve the right to check with GuideStar or Charity Navigator to make certain the nonprofit is in good standing.
It does not matter where you find the property initially, as you’ll find the same properties on all search sites. What matters is who you contact to schedule a showing or buy a property. Only CharityZill gives back to your family and your cause.
The search functions are the same, except sites like Zillow don’t update their listings in real time. Their updates may lag, so not all of the data on these search sites are necessarily current. CharityZill is a direct connection to the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) so all of our data are real-time.
Sites like Zillow also don’t offer a consumer rebate. Instead, that money is being used for their profit margins. Zillow also does not support your cause. CharityZill is the only search site with a 2% consumer rebate and a % donation to your cause.
The CharityZill model uses the "bundle strategy." We take care of your purchase AND secure for you the best home loan available on the market. This one-stop shopping is the reason we can afford to offer you the largest consumer cash rebate on a home purchase in the United States. If you choose not to take advantage of our "bundle strategy," we rebate you 1% cash back on your purchase instead of 2%. Your cause still receives its same generous donation.
We don’t like the word “catch,” but in this day and age it seems everyone has some secret they are not telling the consumer about. Please read our Consumer Guarantee so you do understand how the rebate works and how the nonprofit donation is paid. There are no surprises with CharityZill. We want you to like us and spread the word after your CharityZill experience!
