Exploring Our EZ Move Program—Q&A With Agent Tom White

Head shot of realtor Tom White.

At Riverside Homebuilders, our philosophy of making the new home process as easy, efficient and comfortable as possible for buyers in the DFW area is something we uphold in everything we do—and this is especially prevalent in our newest program, EZ Move. 

For those who are trying to sell their current home before moving into their brand-new Riverside home, we understand how time-consuming, stressful and overwhelming that process can be, and we want to help alleviate some of that pressure. Through our valued partnership with Century 21 Mike Bowman, Inc., the EZ Move Program is designed to assist our customers in selling their current home so they can confidently move forward with purchasing a new one—and the administrator of this program, Agent Tom White, is here to help answer your questions.

Read below to hear more about our EZ Move Program from Tom White and how it can help you save time, money and energy during the transition from your current home to your brand-new Riverside home

What is the EZ Move Program?

The EZ Move Program is an exclusive partnership with Riverside Homebuilders and Century 21 Mike Bowman, Inc. that allows an existing homeowner to have their current home listed for 0% commission. This means that, instead of the typical 6% commission, the homeowner is only paying 3% to the brokerage that brings them a buyer. Century 21 Mike Bowman waives their listing fee entirely!

Since they are listing for 0%, does this mean the listing is marketed in a diminished or scaled-back manner?

No! The homeowner who lists their home in the EZ Move Program receives the same full-service listing and agent attention as any other listing charged the full 6%. This includes:

  • A sign posted in the front yard
  • Professional photography
  • Drone photography
  • Videography
  • Social media advertising on Facebook, Instagram and Youtube
  • Professional ad copy
  • Syndication to over 200 online sites
  • Private landing page
  • Postcards
  • New listing email to a proprietary mailing list
  • Listing posted in Multiple Listing Service (MLS)
  • Agent door knocking with a printed flyer
  • Metrics evaluation & campaign adjustments
  • Open House event
  • Agent Feedback Reports from buyer tours

Do all new homebuilders offer Contingency Contracts?

Taking a new home off the market and turning away potential buyers while the Contingency Home is being marketed is a risk to the builder that most companies are not willing to take. This means the Contingency Homeowner (someone who has a home to sell before buying new) must sell their home first, move into other accommodations and only then submit a contract on their new home. More often than not, this results in the home of their choice being gone by the time they are in a position to purchase. The EZ Move Program streamlines this process and allows the Contingency Homeowner the opportunity to secure the home of their choice while offering a generous period of time for the contingency home to be sold.

Why does Riverside Homebuilders offer this program while so many others do not?

Riverside Homebuilders is a local, family-owned builder whose primary focus is on taking care of their customer's needs. The EZ Move Program is just one more tool to make their customer's dreams of owning a new home that much more attainable. There's no better example of this commitment than the combined Riverside Homebuilders' incentives, and the EZ Move's average out-of-pocket savings of over $12,000* in waived commission!

Does the money saved by the EZ Move Program have to be used on the purchase of the new Riverside Homebuilders Home?

It's your money—so do whatever you wish with it! Some of our clients have used their savings from the EZ Move Program to:

  • Buy down their rate
  • Apply to their down payment
  • Price their home more aggressively
  • Buy new furniture
  • Take their dream vacation
  • Put towards a rainy day fund

Regardless of what your needs may be, the EZ Move Program is designed to accommodate all types of buyers by letting them choose to use their money however they prefer. 

Does using a Realtor just cost me more money on the purchase side of the transaction?

New homes actually have two budgets—the first for materials and labor, and the second for marketing. Most builders recognize the fact that over 96% of all real estate transactions involve a Realtor, so instead of spending that money on TV or radio time, most homebuilders are happy to pay Realtor commissions—especially since that's where the buyers are. Homebuyers only pay for the materials and labor, not marketing, so it does not cost you more money on the purchase side of the transaction. 

What if my home doesn't sell?

Century 21 Mike Bowman, Inc. has over a 98% success rate in selling the listings entrusted to them. By working with your agent to strategically price your home and prepare it for market, homeowners will most likely be able to sell their homes above average market price and below average market time. If your home does not sell, Century 21 Mike Bowman, Inc. offers a guaranteed buyout of your home within 10 days of listing and provides time to market your home for top dollar as an alternative.

“Just wanted to let you all know that the lending team referred to us by Kevin in Oak Ridge did a phenomenal job throughout the entire process.  The GMB-Walton team is who we were working with.  Donnie Walton had some not so enthusiastic phone calls from me and some hoops to jump through and he did it with professionalism and was so positive throughout this process.  Never has this been a wonderful process in our life it can be stressful and so personal beings they have our most personal information and details.  Please acknowledge them and their efforts.” Laura Johnson
