Are you thinking about buying a home?

If so, rhinorealty wants to represent you in that purchase. So much so in fact, that we will pay you for that privilege. Our CashBack Reward Program offers you the services of an experienced buyer's agent and puts cash in your pocket. Truly, it pays to be a rhino!



Furthermore, our buyer's CashBack Reward Program has no conditions or fine print. You will never be restricted to a certain time line, or penalized by the number of home tours prior to purchasing. It's simple, use a rhinoagent to buy your next home and put cash in your pocket.

How you earn a CashBack Reward with rhinorealty:

It's easy, when you buy a home using a rhinoagent as your REALTOR® representative, we’ll pay you a CashBack based on the purchase price of the home you buy. Refer to the following chart to see how much money you will receive on possession day of your new home:

*Amount of CashBack cannot exceed 25% of the commission earned on your purchase.


Resale, Spec Home or New Build:

Our CashBack Reward Program applies to all types of property purchases. Whether you’re buying a resale home through the MLS® System, a For Sale by Owner, a builder spec home or building brand new, your purchase qualifies for our program. Most people understand that using a REALTOR® to buy a home through the MLS® System is common practice, but using a REALTOR® to represent you in a new home build is also a very smart and safe idea. Our REALTORS® can advise you on lot selection, floor plans and most importantly keep the negotiations from getting too personal. Remember though, if you want us to represent you in a new home build, you must start with us at the outset of your search.

Using a REALTOR® to buy:

Choosing to use a REALTOR®, when purchasing your next home, is a smart and responsible course of action. Buying on your own is risky business as there are a number of circumstances that can require expert advice. These include, but are not limited to, providing advice on value and resale potential. A buyer’s agent can also advise you of any seller disclosures and/or bylaw infractions that may pertain to the property. Additionally, buying a home through the listing agent may not be in your best interests as that agent does not owe you the same fiduciary obligations as that of a buyer’s agent working on your behalf.

How buyer's agents are compensated:

When a home seller signs a listing contract with a REALTOR®, the contract always states the total commission to be paid by the seller and how much of that commission the seller's brokerage will pay to the cooperating buyer's agent. The exception to this format is mere postings where the seller pays a cooperating buyer’s agent, if there is one, directly, not through the listing brokerage. In either case, it is generally the seller, not the buyer that pays the commission to both the listing brokerage and the buyer’s brokerage. In Alberta, it is a rare transaction where the buyer is out of pocket for real estate commissions.

Cash incentives and how they work:

Changes to the Alberta Real Estate Act now allow licensed REALTORS® to pay cash incentives to non-licensed individuals. What this means is that if you purchase a home using a licensed REALTOR®, the brokerage is now allowed to pay you, as an incentive to get your business, a portion of their commission earned. The payment is treated as an expense to the brokerage and is tax free to you, the home buyer, as it amounts to a rebate. Leading the way in Alberta, rhinorealty was the first real estate brokerage to offer a brokerage-wide commission rebate to people wishing to purchase a home.

No strings attached:

In Alberta, it is now law that you sign a Buyer Representation Agreement if you are working with a REALTOR® to purchase a property. However, with rhinorealty there’s no need to be concerned. While many brokerages will lock you into an Exclusive Buyer Representation Agreement with fees payable, our agreement is Non-Exclusive with no fee obligation. In fact our Buyer Representation Agreement contractually obligates us to pay you, not the other way around!
