I received an unsolicited email today from a builder offering a 10% Buyers agent commission on 2 homes in Templeton. That would be like a homeowner offering 20% total commission (1/2 for the Buyers agent, 1/2 for the Listing agent).

In the small print at the bottom it says that the 10% commission is if the home is sold on or before October 21st. Offers must be able to close escrow 30 days or less.

I don’t know if they consider “sold” when the offer is made or when it closes escrow. The small print further states that homes sold after October 21st get a 3% commission. To further cause confusion, the headline says “2 Weeks only on 2 Completed Homes”. I have no clue what the 2 weeks refers to…
