WELCOME TO Maximum Cashback

Buying a Home has changed. Many home buyers prefer to search for a new home themselves.

The traditional Real Estate model is still playing by the old rules, but we at MoveCashBack.Com feel that home buyers should be rewarded for all of their efforts. By actively participating in the search for your home, you save us time and money, so we pass the savings on to you.

We will give you anywhere from 2.85% to 6% of the purchase price of your new home as Cashback at closing (dependent on us receiving at least 3% to 6% commission from the Builder). 

In addition, we can help you with every step of the process until closing.

Free Service - No Cost to You

Our service is free - there is no charge to you. The fact is that the Builder's own company policy requires the price of the home to be the same whether you use an agent or not. Builders have a Real Estate commission (typically 3%) already factored into their listing price since most buyers work with a Real Estate Agent / REALTOR®. If you don't work with a Real Estate Agent / REALTOR®, the Builder will simply pocket the money for themselves.

No Obligation - Cancel Anytime

There is no obligation, contract, or commitment to use our service - you can cancel anytime. If you choose not to purchase a home or want to work with another Real Estate Agency, you are free to stop using our service. But remember, if you want Cashback, you'll need to stick with us - we can't pay you unless we get paid. When the Builder pays us our 3% commission at closing, we will keep $1000 and give you 3% minus $1000 (dependant on the Builder paying us 3% commission).

Some builders pay us 4%, 5% since we do sell lot of their homes. We will pass these savings to our customers.

New Home Specialists

We specialize in new homes and new construction - including "spec homes" (inventory / pre-built homes) and model homes sold by Builders.

We feel that buying new is the better buy - you get to pick the home, lot, and upgrades and customize it to fit your needs.

Keep Your Discounts & Promotions

Your rebate will be in addition to any special promotional pricing, discounts, closing credits, free options, upgrades, or any other incentives that the Builder may be offering at the time of your purchase. The best part is that our service and Cashback program wont cost you a penny!

Contract Negotiation

Are you getting the best price? Are there some free upgrades the Builder may be willing to throw in to seal the deal? Let us negotiate with the Builder for you so you can save even more!

You'll also find our web site to be a one-stop resource for your online real estate research. We're eager to tell you what we know about the local market for condos or homes, or preconstruction, or whatever is most interesting at the moment - that's where you'll usually find us! We delight in helping people succeed in this market, and when our clients come out of the transaction breathing that big sigh of relief, we're just as satisfied as they are.

Real Estate Broker’s Refund to Homebuyer Not Taxable

A real estate broker representing a home BUYER typically receives part of the sales commissions for his/her services of bring in a ready, willing, and able buyer.  The agreement between this broker and the home buyer provides for the broker to refund part of these commissions to the home buyer.  Alternatively the broker’s agency permits the buyer to apply the “refund” as a credit towards closing costs, the down payment, and/or a reduction in purchase price.  There are two questions in this letter ruling request.

First is the question of whether the refund or credit to the buyer is considered to be income to the buyer.  IRS answer is “no.”  Section 61 requires all income to be taxable except…  Revenue Ruling 2006-27 states a nonprofit corporation that provides down payment assistance towards the purchase of homes to low-income individuals and families is not income, but is a basis adjustment.  Revenue Ruling 76-96 states rebates received by buyers and lessees of automobiles do not have income, but have a basis adjustment.  Based on these citations, IRS has determined the broker’s refund is not taxable, but is an adjustment in the buyer’s basis in the house.

Second is the question of whether the broker is required to give the buyer a Form 1099 for the refund.  IRS again says “no.”  Section 6041 requires Forms 1099 to be issued in cases where a taxpayer is paying various items in relation to the taxpayer’s business.  However IRS further states “A payor generally is not required to make a return under section 6041 of the Code for payments that are not includible in the recipient’s income, nor is a payor required to make a return if the payor does not have a basis to determine the amount of a payment that is required to be included in the recipient’s income.  Therefore the broker is not required to issue a Form 1099 in relation to the refund of the broker’s commissions.

Citation:  Letter Ruling 200721013  - - A copy of this ruling can be found at www.irs.gov by going to the Electronic Freedom of Information Reading Room and clicking on 200721013, or by going to www.irs.gov/pub/irs-wd/ and clicking on 200721013.  We can also send you a pdf copy attached to an email upon request.
