Broker Policy

The New Home Company deeply values our local real estate brokers and agents.  We know that you have many homes to show your clients, and we want our residences to be on the top of your list. We are committed to providing you and your clients the best new-home buying experience possible.

POLICY: Our agent/broker fee is a referral fee for walking in your client. Like most builders, we have a strict policy of requiring agents/brokers to accompany their clients on their first visit to a neighborhood, preview event or information seminar. We do not credit any commissions to the buyers through escrow, and we do not pay a commission to a principal buyer. See full Broker Cooperation Terms and Conditions below.

PRIORITY ORDER: To best assist your client, they need to register on our Priority List through our website at www.thenewhomecompany.com. Your client will receive a Priority Position to purchase. We can only sell to a buyer (client) who has a Priority Position (not agents/brokers Priority Position). We will attach the agent/broker to the client once the agent/broker accompanies the client into the community on their first visit, including preview events prior to Model Opening such as private tours, dusty shoes and VIP events.

REGISTERING: When accompanying your client into the community on their first visit or preview event, please complete the Broker Registration form.  If your client has not visited the community before, we will allow you to register them and attach you to their file. While you are always welcome, from that point forward you no longer need to accompany the client on future visits. 

MARKETING: The New Home Company understands that in order to successfully sell real estate brokers must also have thoughtful marketing campaigns. Although we support local broker efforts to market our neighborhoods for sale, we maintain the exclusive rights to all text, imagery and video assets located on our website or other NWHM created marketing material. Use of any marketing assets requires approval by The New Home Company.
