Best Polk County Realtor | DRJ Real Estate Homes for Heroes
Health Care Workers, LEO’s, Firefighters, Military, and Teachers are eligible for Hero Rewards from Homes for Heroes!
Hero. That word gets thrown around a lot these days, and rightfully so. Particularly during these challenging times, certain professions have faced a disproportionate amount of challenges. The call to duty, call to service, continues to be answered day in and day out by these special people.
We are talking about the Heroes, specifically, who serve our communities in health care, law enforcement, fire protection and emergency response, homeland security/military, and education.
To honor these Heroes, DRJ Real Estate has partnered with Homes for Heroes as a local affiliate. Homes for Heroes provides “Hero Rewards” to these professions, just for doing their job. Your Hero Reward will help you buy or sell your home by providing discounted services, reduced fees, and even cash back at closing! Keep reading to learn how easy it is for you to qualify for your Hero Reward. Your DRJ Real Estate team can help you qualify for your Hero Reward while helping you navigate your home sale or purchase.
How Do Hero Rewards Work?
It is so simple to receive a Hero Reward that most people think it is too good to be true. Simply contact your local Homes for Heroes affiliate and fill out a brief online qualification application.
Homes for Heroes, Inc. is the largest nationwide network of affiliate real estate, mortgage, and local business specialists; committed to providing easy ways for heroes to save on a home.
Shortly after 9/11, Homes for Heroes, Inc. was established to give back to firefighters, EMS, law enforcement, military (active, reserves & veterans), healthcare professionals and teachers for all they do.
Your application asks a few questions to verify that you are a current or former “Hero”, and then you will be contacted by one of our affiliate real estate professionals to help you with next steps. Our network of real estate service providers ensures that you will receive the maximum Hero Reward possible, with no extra steps, hoops to jump through, or fine print.
How Much Can I Save With Homes For Heroes?
When it comes to saving on your real estate transaction, it will vary. The average hero saves $2,400 when buying or selling with Homes for Heroes. However, savings will change based on services and transaction amount.
For example, if you are buying a home and working with a Homes for Heroes affiliate Realtor, you can save $700 for every $100,000 of the purchase price. For example, you can save $2,100 on a $300,000 home just for being a Hero! That comes back to you in the form of a check after you close, or can be applied to closing costs. Imagine what you can put that cash towards in your new home!
Additionally, working with Homes for Heroes means that you can receive discounted services on your mortgage, title, and inspection services. On average, our Heroes save $500 just in lender fees!
