How Homes for Heroes works in Fort Bliss
Homes for Heroes can make the dream of homeownership a reality. When you use a local realtor associated with Homes for Heroes, your realtor rebates a portion of their commission to you at closing. You’ll also get money back from your HFH affiliated lender. That’s right; you’ll get a “Hero” Reward Check at the end.
The program more works explicitly like this. When you use a Homes for Heroes affiliate real estate agent to purchase a home, you save $700 on every $100,000 of the home price. For example, if the house you are buying costs $250,000 you would save $1,750. And, Homes for Heroes will send you a Hero Rewards® check for the amount you saved on your home.
When you sell a home, your Homes for Heroes agent specialist will provide you with a 25% credit on their gross commission at closing.
Not only will you receive exceptional service and save money on your home, but when you use Homes for Heroes, you also help other heroes in need. A portion of Homes for Heroes’ earnings is donated to the Homes for Heroes Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) that provides assistance to heroes in need.
