ZipRealty offers great, personalized real estate service while providing a cash rebate. This cash rebate is equal to 20% of ZipRealty's buyer's agent commission. For a $500K house, this is around $3K. In a typical real estate transaction, the seller of the home usually pays all of the commission to sell their home. Half of that commission goes to the seller's agent and half of it goes to the buyer's agent. It is this half of the buyer's agent commission which ZipRealty will give its buyer clients. Since all homes are listed on the MLS, you can't go wrong with ZipRealty - you get the same house with some cash back.
