IIC = GoFundMe + Zillow
Just as GoFundMe gives people the ability to raise money for any personal or social cause, IIC gives people the ability to do the same anytime they use a real estate agent for a commercial or residential transaction. Just as Zillow generates revenue by collecting referral fees from real estate agents who get clients through the platform, IIC generates funding for personal and social causes by collecting referral fees from real estate agents who get a client from the platform.
It’s Real Money
A typical sale of a $300,000 home generates around $1,350, based on typical referral fees, for any personal cause or nonprofit the client chooses. And yes, that money is paid by the lucky agent who is chosen by the client. And no, the agent’s “generosity” plays no part in whether they participate, because agents are almost always eager to pay referral fees to win a client. The only “catch” is that the client needs to contact IIC first so IIC can contact the agent.
OK, Break It Down For Me.
It’s easy to get swept up in the excitement of a real estate transaction. And it’s easy to forget that it’s way to provide significant support for the cause you care about. Start with a reminder for yourself! So, if you want someone to do the legwork of finding excellent agents and make sure your transaction benefits the cause you care about, tell us when you want to be reminded- and how.
