The HomeStory Rewards Program is offered in partnership with HomeStory Real Estate Services, a licensed real estate broker. HomeStory Real Estate Services is not affiliated with Zillow Home Loans, and Zillow Home Loans is not responsible for the program provided by HomeStory Real Estate Services. Obtaining a mortgage from Zillow Home Loans is optional and not required to participate in the program offered by HomeStory Real Estate Services. The borrower may arrange for financing with any lender. However, the borrower agrees to give Zillow permission to provide HomeStory closing statements with sufficient detail in order to pay the reward following the closing of the real estate transaction.
Qualifying for the reward requires using a real estate agent that participates in HomeStory's broker to broker agreement to complete the real estate buy and/or sell transaction. You retain the right to negotiate buyer and or seller representation agreements. Upon successful close of the transaction, the Real Estate Agent pays a referral fee to HomeStory Real Estate Services. All Agents have been independently vetted by HomeStory to meet performance expectations required to participate in the program. If you are currently working with a real estate agent, this is not a solicitation. A reward is not available where prohibited by state law, including Alaska, Iowa, Louisiana and Missouri. A reduced agent commission may be available for sellers in lieu of the reward in Mississippi, New Jersey, Oklahoma, and Oregon and should be discussed with the agent upon enrollment. No reward will be available for buyers in Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Oregon. A commission credit may be available for buyers in lieu of the reward in New Jersey and must be discussed with the agent upon enrollment and included in a Buyer Agency Agreement with Rebate Provision. Rewards in Kansas and Tennessee are required to be delivered by gift card. In Kansas the reward is set to $1,000 regardless of the sale price of the property.
HomeStory will issue the reward using the payment option you select and will be sent to the client enrolled in the program within 45 days after closing. Real estate agent fees and commissions still apply. Short sale transactions do not qualify for the reward. Employer-sponsored relocations may preclude participation in the reward program offering. Zillow Home Loans is not responsible for the reward. The reward is valid for 18 months from the date of enrollment. After 18 months, you must re-enroll to be eligible for a reward. Offer subject to change or cancellation without notice.
If your property is currently listed with a real estate agent, please disregard this notice. It is not our intention to solicit the offerings of other real estate agents.
