Users acknowledge and understand that access to this information requires user registration by the rule of NTREIS and that final SOLD prices indicated on "Sold Listings" may not reflect actual sold prices. It is a policy of NTREIS and the MLS boards that make up NTREIS to purposely withhold final sold prices. The ACTUAL SOLD PRICES shown on SOLD LISTINGS is the last known price said MLS listings displayed prior to being marked as SOLD. To obtain actual final SOLD pricing, you must contact a Realtor who can supply a sold report.

The Askins Realty Group, LLC makes no promise of suitability nor makes any guarantee whatsoever for any contractor ad found in this website's "Contractor Directory." Use of this website implies and you fully agree to accept full responsibility and liability for your choice to use any "Contractor" that may be listed in this website's "Contractor Directory and that ARG makes no recommendation or referral and or accepts no referral fees from any contractor that is found in our contractor directory.

Disclaimer: Property Taxes Are Estimations Only and Subject to Verification

Property Taxes shown on this website are estimations only and are not guaranteed. Payment calculators embedded in MLS listings found on this website offer property tax estimations only and are in all cases, subject to user verification under ARG's™ terms of use policy. Users of this website, therefore, acknowledge and agree that it is their express and sole responsibility to accurately verify all property tax estimations with the appropriate taxing authorities. Web-users furthermore agree to hold ARG harmless for the estimated tax amounts shown on this website. When in doubt, ASK QUESTIONS.

ARG™ recommends that all users of this website familiarize themselves with the various taxing jurisdictions in and around the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex and research these public access websites and use them to verify property tax amounts that may apply to specific property addresses of interest.

Cash Rebate Terms and Conditions

Commission rebates are always deemed negotiable and based upon and subject to an executed contractual agreement with ARG™. Agents working under the license of ARG™ are independent contractors and as such may not be bound by rebates shown on this website. Cash rebate amounts shown on this website are strictly limited-service rebates and are not guaranteed, unless agreed to in writing in an executed buyer agreement with Askins Realty Group, LLC. 

Rebates are always calculated based upon gross commission paid by a new home builder. Hence no business deductions are made to your rebate before we calculate rebate owed.

Rebates are always calculated on actual "Commission Sales Price" used by your builder to determine Realtor commission. That means your cash rebate may not be based upon final sales price, but on initial or a base price determined by your home builder. Please refer to your new home purchase contract to understand the new home sales price your realtor commission is based on. Generally, rebates follow published rebate percentages shown on this website but are subject to change without notice.

Exact rebate amounts displayed on this website are not guaranteed and may be subject to change without notice. Only cash rebates agreed to in writing are deemed guaranteed. 

In order to obtain a cash rebate from ARG™, a new home buyer cannot be represented by another licensed real estate professional and must ensure at the time of their contract that "Askins Realty Group, LLC" is added to your contract as your buyer agent. An ARG™ client must agree to execute a brokerage rebate protection agreement for the rebate they are to receive.

In the event of non-payment to ARG™ of their buyer's broker commission, as provided for in your new home purchase contract, the client agrees to hold ARG harmless for non-credit, non-payment of a cash rebate. Clients acknowledge that ALL client cash rebates are firstly dependent upon FULL payment of buyer's broker commission as determined at the time of contract and as shown in your written buyer agreement.  

If for any reason and in the event our Realtor commission paid to ARG™ is less than the amount shown in your agreement, commission rebate will also be commensurately less.

Per regulations of the Texas Real Estate Commission in Austin (TREC) All cash rebates are subject to the consent of the Principals (Clients) we (ARG™) represent. Meaning if ARG™ is representing a specific party in a real estate transaction, we need that party's consent before providing that party a cash rebate. Normally this is accomplished via a buyer representation agreement where the rebate amounts and terms of our services are mutually agreed upon. 

In general buyer cash rebates may be used towards a buyer's closing costs and prepaids, but never towards a buyer's down payment unless your transaction is all cash. Other uses of ARG's™ buyer cash rebate may involve a reduction of your home's final price, or increasing your new home design center allowance by the amount of your rebate, without increasing your home's final sales price.

Please be aware that rebate amounts shown on this website are not guaranteed. An example is with Express homes which is a subsidiary of DR Horton homes, the commission paid is 1% lower than with typical D.R. Horton homes and hence the displayed rebate is in error. The problem is we can't assign a rebate amount to "Express Homes" because D.R. Horton does not list these homes as "Express Homes" in MLS. It is the responsibility of all clients to make contact with us prior to signing a new home contract with any builder to understand actual rebate amounts and to get that amount in writing. At that time we will confirm your rebate and bring to your attention and issues that may cause your rebate amount to change. Rebates will not change after your representation agreement with ARG™ is executed, unless upon the consent of all parties or in the event of partial or non-payment of full commission by your home builder.

In no case shall any cash rebate offer be more than the actual commission paid to ARG. 

Price Reduction Technology

Access to "Price Reduction Technology" is reserved for clients of ARG™ who are under an executed buyer representation agreement. 

Advertised Rebate Amounts Shown on MLS Listings

Web visitors are reminded that it is illegal for the Real Estate industry to "fix" commission rates to Texas consumers. Therefore, rebate amounts shown on pre-owned MLS listings may be subject to change without notice in the event the commission offered is less than 3%. Before accepting any rebate shown on this website as fact, please call us at 972.529.2394. You agree as a term of use for this website, that you hold ARG harmless in the event that actual rebates are less than amounts shown.

Pre-owned MLS Listings

Pre-owned rebates of 1.5% apply to listings priced at $300K or more. Below $300K to $200K rebate is 1%. We do not offer rebates on preowned homes below $200K.

Exclusive Low Cost to Commission FREE New Home Move-up Offer

ARG™ offers a completely commission free NEW home move-ups for select new home builders shown on this website (see move-up calculator). Actual client cost for ARG's™ "Free" move up is based upon the "Commission Calculated Sales Price" of the home you are buying, (determined by the individual home builder and explained in your new home purchase contract) and the sales price of the pre-owned home we are selling for you.  As long as that difference is $50K or more, and the builder is an ARG™ "Preferred New Home Builder," your total net listing fee cost will equal ZERO DOLLARS, ZERO PERCENT or 100% FREE (all 6% avoided) upon closing of your new home. If you close your pre-owned home prior to closing your new home, you will have to cover a temporary 4% commission fee and when you close your new home, ARG will refund back the temporary commission fee based upon our online "Free-Move-up calculator.

Our new home move up offer is always in lieu of our advertised buyer cash rebate offer and only applies to NEW HOMES, meaning ARG™ offers one money-saving option but not both.

ARG™ money-saving New home move-up offer applies to all DFW area new home builders. Actual client cost to sell their home using ARG™ as their agent is determined by our online move-up calculator.

New Home Builder Information

ARG™ provides an abundance of new home information on this website. ARG™ does not represent any new home builders in any manner and never acts as a new home listing agent unless specifically indicated otherwise. ARG™ is furthermore NOT compensated by any New Home Builders for advertising and or marketing of their new homes on our website. ARG's new home advertisements and information are deemed reliable but are not guaranteed and are subject to change without notice.
