Your Realtor is the key to a successful home purchase.
Homebuying360 gives you access to experienced, local Realtors - all of whom have been thoroughly screened by Home Advantage®. You can choose the Realtor you'd like to use or we'll recommend one for you. Regardless of whom you select, your Realtor provides a full range of services, including:
- Helping you understand your credit and financing options
- Educating you about local market conditions
- Identifying prospective properties and arranging showings (and weeding out the ones that don't fit your needs)
- Providing insights into local codes, regulations, and HOA rules
- Representing you (not the seller) in the real estate transaction
- Writing the purchase contract and subsequent addenda
- Assisting you with negotiating price, as well as other items and terms
- Recommending service providers such as title companies, home inspectors, contractors, movers, etc.
The services your Realtor provides will save you time, effort, and money.
And speaking of money, buyer representation is one of the best values you'll find, since you don't pay for it. Sellers typically pay both the listing and buyer agent commissions*. Plus, when you use a Homebuying360/Home Advantage® approved Realtor, you will receive a cash reward of hundreds (or thousands) of dollars.
What's the difference between a Realtor®
and a real estate agent?
Beware: All Realtors are agents but not all agents are Realtors. A real estate agent is a state-licensed real estate salesperson. A Realtor is an agent who is also a member of the National Association of Realtors.
Realtors are required to follow a strict code of ethics, which includes putting their clients' interests before their own. Those who violate the code of ethics face hefty fines, suspension, or expulsion.
All Homebuying360/Home Advantage® network agents are Realtors.

* Through broker cooperation, the broker who secures a real estate listing and the broker who brings the purchaser agree to a commission split. You should ask your real estate agent who pays their commission if the listing broker is not a cooperating broker.
The HomeAdvantage program is made available to you through a relationship between SECU and CU Realty Services. Program Cash Rewards are awarded by CU Realty Services to buyers and sellers who select and use a real estate agent in the HomeAdvantage from CU Realty network. Home buyers or sellers are not eligible for Cash Rewards if they use an agent out side this network. Using SECU for a mortgage is not a requirement to earn Cash Rewards. Cash Rewards amounts are dependent on the commissions paid to the agent. SECU may have specific rules on how your Cash Rewards will be paid out. Cash Rewards incentives are available in most states; however, are void where prohibited by law or by the lender. Please consult with SECU to get details that may affect you.
