FCB Homes values the real estate professionals in the communities where we build new homes and we appreciate referrals from the resale Brokers and Agents who direct their clients to our new home communities. Accordingly, we wish to share with you our policies regarding compensation when circumstances merit payment of a referral fee.
REFERRAL POLICY: FCB Homes will pay a referral fee to a California licensed Broker/Agent provided they are members of the local MLS, and bring their clients in on their first visit to the community. If the referring Broker/Agent lead, results in the sale of a qualifying new home that is not yet completed the referral fee paid will be a specified amount. If the lead results in the sale of a qualifying completed new home the referral fee paid shall be a specified percentage of the purchase price.
REGISTERING: In order to register your client you will need to accompany them on their first visit and complete the Broker Registration form. By providing the completed Broker Registration form, the Broker/ Agent represents that they have obtained authorization from the Client to provide their name and contact information to FCB Homes. All Client registration(s) must be verified to confirm that their Clients were not previously registered with FCB Homes.
PRIORITY ORDER: Once registered, the Client will be added to our interest list. They will need to be pre-approved through the Sellers’ Preferred Lender.
