If there is one cause I believe in, it is giving back to those individuals who have given their lives to defend us and this country. That is why I am so involved in the Homes for Heroes Program. Without veterans, first responders, and other people who work tirelessly behind the scenes, sacrificing their lives for all of us, we wouldn’t be able to live freely. Homes for Heroes is an amazing program that helps place those who defend our country into homes with lower interest rates and other benefits. That is why I am a Homes for Heroes Summerville agent.
As a Homes for Heroes participating realtor, I have donated a total of $58,034.12 out of my commissions over the past three years to give heroes in this community the help that they deserve. I don’t say this to brag, but to let our community know that Sea Turtle Properties is invested in their future and we put our money where our mouth is to prove it.
What is the Homes for Heroes Program?
The Homes for Heroes program matches real estate professionals, like myself, willing to donate their time, resources, and commissions to heroes within the community. When you buy or sell a home using the program, the commission from an affiliated real estate agent is reimbursed back to you via a check once the house closes. If you choose a lender in the network, you will also get additional financial benefits.
Who is Eligible?
Specific occupations and volunteers are eligible to participate in the program. Those who qualify include first responders, teachers, police officers, firefighters, medical care workers, military, and corrections officers. There are also some other qualifications that might allow you to participate. Sea Turtle Properties would be honored to help guide you through the process. We are leaders in the industry who not only know the ins and outs of the program; we use our connections to give you the greatest benefits possible.
What are the Benefits of the Program?
Heroes working with an in-network realtor can receive as much as .07% back of their total home purchase. In practical terms, that means you can receive as much as $700 per $100,000 in total home prices. Additionally, if you work with a mortgage lender, title company, and inspection professional who participate, you can save as much as $150 on the title costs, $500 in lending fees, and $50 off your home inspection.
Selling a Home
If you are a hero who is selling your home and using an in-network real estate agent, you can earn a 25% credit on their total commission at closing. Working with a participating mortgage lender will also come with an additional $150 savings. This means the more professionals you choose to work with in the program, the more you save!
Why We Believe it is Our Duty
The people who work to keep us all protected and safe ask for nothing in return, and they shouldn’t have to. As American citizens, we should do all that we can to give back to the people who enhance our daily lives in so many beneficial ways. I come from a family of veterans, firefighters, and police officers. I understand their sacrifice. I consider the money that I donate via commission to be very little when compared to all that these heroes do for me, my family, my community, and my country. It is my honor to serve you the way that you serve all of us. If you think you might be eligible to participate, contact Sea Turtle Properties today, and let’s get started saving you the most money possible and get you into the home of your dreams!
Thank you for your service. It is our honor to serve you. I am proud to be a Homes for Heroes Summerville agent.
