How much does this program cost?
Our service is COMPLETELY FREE to buyers, sellers, and non-profits!
How much will my non-profit receive?
Under most circumstances, the donation will equal .25% of the transaction price.
For example, a typical $800,000 transaction would result in a $2,000 donation for your non-profit!
How do I choose my agent?
The choice is up to you! We’re happy to make some expert recommendations or just let us know if you already have an agent in mind!
Where does the donation funding come from?
Once you’ve selected an agent, we create a referral agreement with their brokerage. This crucial step ensures the donation funding will be paid when the transaction closes.
Is GoodReferral.org a real estate brokerage?
Yes, GoodReferral.org is a California-licensed brokerage. This allows us to enter into broker referral agreements with brokers located anywhere nationwide. Further, we can make donations to eligible non-profits located nationwide.
If I learn about your program from a particular non-profit, do they automatically receive the donation from my transaction?
Not at all! Each client is free to choose which non-profit will receive their donation as long as they meet our eligibility requirements.
How do I find out if my non-profit is eligible?
Most organizations that are tax-exempt under Section 501(c) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code will qualify. More specifically, we prioritize those who focus on arts, science, education, health, poverty, animal welfare, and be dedicated to benefiting society at large on a non-discriminatory basis.
Is GoodReferral.org a non-profit?
Our primary purpose is to give clients the ability to support worthy causes they believe in. However, as a licensed real estate brokerage, we aren’t in the same category as a traditional non-profit or charitable organization.
I’m seeing both 25% and 0.25% mentioned…what’s the difference?
Those two values refer to two different elements of the transaction.
Here’s a brief explanation assuming an $800,000 transaction and the broker receiving a 2% commission:
Receiving brokers usually pay us a referral fee equal to 25% of their commission.
For example: $16,000 commission x 25% = $4,000 referral paid to us.
Our overhead/marketing/salaries are deducted from that amount which leaves the remaining amount that is donated.
A good estimate of the donation amount is 0.25% of the total transaction amount.
For example: $800,000 x 0.25% = ~$2,000 estimated donation
Please note that these figures are just estimates and subject to change with each transaction. The actual donation amount is subject to change based on the transaction amount and the negotiated rates between clients & their brokers.STILL HAVE MORE QUESTIONS?
