e-Hawaii Realty is a leader in leveraging technology to reduce the cost of buying or selling a home. When you purchase a home through e-Hawaii Realty we will rebate 60% of our net buyer agent commission back to you. For example, you could save up to $8,595 when buying a $500,000 home!
Let’s use an example to explain how it works. Say you purchased a home for $500,000 through a traditional brokerage on a 6% listing. Your broker would end up keeping 3% of the purchase price or $15,000.
If however you purchased the same $500,000 home through e-Hawaii Realty using our 60% Buyer Commission Rebate, rather than keeping the entire commission e-Hawaii Realty would rebate 60% of our net brokerage commission (net of 4.5% state and county excise taxes) or $8,595 back to you! Your actual rebate will of course vary depending upon the actual purchase price and the actual buyer agent commission but could even be larger on a more expensive property.
YES! You receive the same professional service to assist you in selecting and purchasing your home that you would receive from a traditional brokerage. e-Hawaii Realty may offer you a great rebate but we do NOT cut corners and are NOT a “discount real estate brokerage”. e-Hawaii Realty believes in fair pricing and are simply passing on the cost savings from our technology and efficient operation back to you.
Our Buyer Total Care Service:
There is no catch! Everything is fully disclosed and e-Hawaii Realty gives instructions for the rebate to escrow so the rebate is issued directly by escrow. The real estate rebate will appear on your HUD disclosure statement provided to you be escrow. e-Hawaii Realty never has access to your rebate money.
There is no minimum purchase price to qualify however to ensure the highest quality service for our clients e-Hawaii Realty's portion of the buyer agent commission must be at least $2,000 per transaction. If e-Hawaii Realty's portion of the buyer agent commission is less than $2,000 with a 60% rebate then the rebate amount will be adjusted to ensure the minimum of $2,000.
For example, if you purchased a $150,000 home with a 3% buyer commission then the 60% rebate amount would be $2,578 however since e-Hawaii Realty's portion would only be $1,800 the rebate amount would be adjusted to $2,378 to increase e-Hawaii Realty's portion to the minimum of $2,000. Even with the adjustment the rebate percentage in this example would still be almost 55%. As a rough guide if the purchase price is over $170,000 on a property with a 3% buyer commission then you should be receiving the full rebate.
If you have any questions please contact us and we'll be glad to assist you.
Your actual rebate will depend on the actual purchase price of your home and the actual buyer agent commission but you can use the chart below to get an estimate of your potential rebate.

NO! Unlike high-cost and discount real estate brokerages that may require you to sign a buyer agency agreement to lock you into working with them, e-Hawaii Realty believes in winning your trust and your business by providing excellent service and unbeatable value. With e-Hawaii Realty you have no risk or no lock-in -- if you don't like the service we provide while searching for your home you are free to leave and continue searching for your home with another real estate brokerage.
YES! You can definitely combine the e-Hawaii Realty real estate rebate with your Federal home buyer tax credit to increase your savings even more! If you're a first-time home buyer or a qualified existing home owner you'd better act fast though since you need to get a property into escrow by April 30, 2010 to qualify for the Federal home buyer tax credit.
NO! Unlike some other real estate brokerages that may offer "cash advances" at closing that you later need to pay back, the money you receive from your e-Hawaii Realty real estate rebate is yours and never has to be paid back.
YES! You can combine these funds to give you even more flexibility in buying upgrades for your new home or to do anything you choose. The only caveat is that an e-Hawaii Realty agent MUST be present with you when you first visit the development otherwise you will be considered a direct customer of the developer and e-Hawaii Realty will not be able to assist you with the transaction and provide you a rebate. If you are considering a new housing development definitely contact e-Hawaii Realty first so you don't lose the opportunity for a rebate!

Unfortunately real estate agents are barred from giving a real estate rebate on a short sale or REO transaction since the lender for the existing mortgage on the property is taking a loss and does not permit either the buyer or the seller to receive a benefit from the transaction. The existence of a rebate must be fully disclosed to all parties involved in the transaction. This rule applies to all real estate brokerages and not just e-Hawaii Realty. If you are interested in purchasing a short sale or REO property please contact us to discuss your options.
