How You Could Win a Full Commission Amount This March

In the spirit of March Madness, we’re holding a competition of our own where you could win up to the full commission amount in a home sale.
Today we’re going to share how you can win in the game of real estate with our Treu Madness contest.

Unfortunately, Florida was just named No. 1 in mortgage denials; 17.1% of people applying for a home loan were denied. So how do you win if you’re looking to sell or buy real estate in our state? If you’re looking to buy, there’s some information you really need to know ahead of time. A good thing to do is start by pulling your credit report on a free site like Credit Karma. It won’t tell you exactly what a lender will see, but it’s a great ballpark for you.

Secondly, have all your documents like bankruptcies, foreclosures, and commissioned income prepared so you can discuss them with your lender.  The third thing you want is a thorough pre-approval, not a pre-qualification. Many homes don’t ask for certain financial documents and miss them. You might end up falling in love with a home only to have your heart broken when you find out you don’t qualify for the home’s cost.


If you guess the bracket correctly, you could win up to the full commission amount.



If you’re selling your house, that 17.1% should really be a concern because you don’t want your buyer to be denied a loan. That’s why it’s important to have a real estate team on your side that knows how to win and find the right deal for you.

Now, it’s March and we all know that it’s NCAA tournament time and Treu Group Real Estate wants to join in on the madness. We’re having a contest where you could receive closing cost credit up to the full commission amount. To play, call us and let’s get your home on the market if you’re selling, or let’s get you under contract if you’re buying.

Then, you can take a guess the winning basketball tournament bracket. If you guess the bracket 100% correctly, you could win up to the commission amount that we would collect as a commission cost. It will be a lot of fun! We’re even giving everybody who plays a prize.

If you want to join the contest, just give us a call soon. Good luck, and we hope to hear from you!
