I have looked into this and the leads. They require a 15% referal fee and a minimum rebate of 10% back to buyer or seller. With 25% of an agents commission gone before you start, the cost does not warrant the investment

If consumers want to earn money in real estate they have two choices in my mind: invest, or get a license. Ask your doctor CPA or attorney to rebate some of their fee and see how that works. It disappoints me that agents are willing to, as a condition of doing business. I'm not talking about giving a great deal to a repeat client, but rather consumers whose primary objective is to find an agent willing to pay them to work for them. People that shortsighted are not my demographic, and agents willing to bend over are pathetic and do nothing to elevate our industry.

Sounds like "you could save a few thousand, but if only if you use one of our agents.  If not, we'll give you $300".

 

Funny, I thought from the question that this had to do with the United Nations... which of course brought me to Idiocracy and the "UN Defeating the Nazis"

Save money. Live Better.

That message worked for America's largest retailer and employer.

When I need something, I don't bite on the first ad I see. I look to see if I can save money through other options.

For example, this month, if I buy a new Epson printer I can receive a rebate of $150 or $250 dollars. Both are correct.

It reminds me of an agent in town that was advertising a sales position with a base salary of $250,000 + commissions. I finally inquired about it after a month of seeing the ads. He told me it was $25,000. I sent him the ad. He contact the company writing the ad and it was corrected that day. He had no idea, and I didn't get a sales job with a base salary of $250,000 + commissions.
