Buying or Selling Your House? Get the best deal possible
SLAC employees can get some extra discounts when buying and selling real estate. In an agreement with Stanford University and ClickHome, an online real estate company based in Santa Clara, all SLAC employees are entitled to discounted closing costs if they purchase or sell their house using a realtor from ClickHome.
The company offers a significant brokerage fee discount to buyers and sellers. Buyers using ClickHome realtors receive a rebate of about 1.5 percent of the purchase price of the property they buy. If SLAC employees use the firm to sell their homes, they will save 1.5 to 2.5 percent. ClickHome is a full service real estate firm, with you every step of the way when you are buying, and offering a complete marketing plan when you sell.
ClickHome Mortgage offers loans from over 80 lenders, giving you tremendous market selection on loans of every kind, including Interest only, Zero Down, MCC and Neighborhood Advantage for first time buyers. Pre-approvals are always complimentary to SLAC employees and their families. ClickHome loan officers will analyze your financial situation and help you determine which loan best fits your needs. Securing a loan through ClickHome can save you anywhere from about 25 to 50 percent off the average loan points.
During 2005, ClickHome worked with several Stanford employees, including some from SLAC, and saved them an average of $9,595 when buying or selling a home. The customer feedback regarding ClickHome service has been exceptional.
ClickHome staff will present an information session at SLAC on February 23rd from 2:30 to 3:30 in the Redwood Room, section A and B. Interested staff should work out their attendance with their supervisor.
