Sample calculation of how charges our itemized.

“A $5,000.00 Advance with escrow scheduled to close in 35 days wired to your bank account.”


Fee Calculation: $5,000 x 0.10 = $500 + $45 = $545.00 (This is a tax deductible business expense)

We would purchase your commission receivable for $4,455.00 (This is the amount we would wire to your account)

Your settlement company will pay us $5,000.00 at closing.

Remember there is always a 15 day grace period of NO additional fees if escrow is delayed.
