Investing In Communities®, the first and only nonprofit real estate referral service, uses an objective vetting process to give home buyers and sellers their choice of specifically qualified brokers and enables them to direct most of the referral fee to the charity of their choice – at no cost to the buyer or seller. IIC can also be used with a broker that you are already considering.

When consumers use Investing In Communities® to select their real estate broker, Investing In Communities® receives the referral fee, passes 60% of it to the individual’s favorite charity and 20% to the charity that told them about IIC. For example, on a $300,000 home sale, in most cases a minimum of $1,500 would be shared proportionally between the two charities. Approximately 6% of households buy or sell a home in any given year. What is 6% of your supporter base?

An individual can select any of IIC’s eligible charities to benefit from their transaction. However, the best way to get chosen is to tell your supporters about Investing In Communities®. We can help you put an IIC button on your website, share IIC on facebook and in your newsletter.
