Arbor Homes is proud to work with area Realtors and provide their customers with a home and community in which they can be proud to live! Below are some commonly asked questions and answers that we hope will make working with Arbor Homes an efficient and pleasurable experience.
What is the Arbor Homes Realtor Participation Program?
Arbor Homes is proud to offer licensed Indiana Realtors the below commission program. Nearly 70% of our business each year includes Realtor participation.
How do I participate in the Realtor Program?
There are three ways to sign up for the Realtor Participation Program:
It is preferred that the Realtor brings the prospective homebuyer, on their initial visit, to register the customer and him/herself on the Realtor-Client Registration form with the Arbor Homes Sales Manager in the community.
If it is not possible to come in with the homebuyer, we ask for a courtesy call from the Realtor to the Arbor Homes Sales Manager providing the customer’s name and telephone number prior to their initial visit.
If a customer does visit the sales model on their own, they must list the Realtor on their first visit for the Realtor to be included in the sale.
Who is eligible for the program?
The program is applicable to licensed Indiana Realtors in good standing within the State of Indiana who bring in a buyer, using one of the three methods listed above.
What if my customer is credit challenged, needs time to save a down payment or is currently in a lease agreement?
Arbor Homes has many programs to accommodate specific buyer situations. See your community Sales Manager for details.
How do I get paid?
Arbor Homes, LLC agrees to pay 3% of the final purchase price at closing for all qualified sales.
A completed W-9 form must be on file with the Arbor Corporate office for each sale transacted with a Realtor. Realtor to provide a copy of their active Indiana Broker or Real Estate Salesperson license or pocket card.
What if my customer is no longer able to buy a home?
If the homebuyer is not able to close or falls out for another reason, it is understood that any up-front commission paid (if applicable) to Realtor will be repaid within 30 days or applied to that Realtor's next closing (must be currently under contract to apply).
