BROKER FAQ

What is a real estate commission advance?
A real estate commission advance is when an Agent and/or Broker receives a cash advance for an anticipated commission before a closing. It is not a loan. An agent is simply leveraging their pending sale for a cash advance.
Is there any risk or liability to the Broker?
No. There is no risk or liability to the Broker. Additionally, the amount of the advance does NOT affect the Broker’s share of the deal.
How does the process work?
The agent applies for a cash advance. Instant Commission reviews the application. Once approved, an agreement is sent to the Agent and Broker outlining the terms and our fee structure. The Broker must acknowledge and agree to the cash advance to the Agent. Once signed, the funds are wired to the Agent.
Why does the broker need to authorize and sign the agreement?
The broker needs to authorize and sign the agreement because all real estate commissions earned by agents belong to the Brokerage. Instant Commission must receive approval from the Broker before providing a commission advance to the Agent.
How is instant commission repaid?
The commission advance is repaid at the closing. Instructions are sent to the title company or closing attorney regarding the repayment of the cash advance and the fee to Instant Commission.
What happens when a deal doesn’t close?
If the deal does not close, the Broker shall have no obligation to repay any commission advanced to the Agent. Instant Commission will look to the Agent to repay the cash advance and fee from a future closing.
