Program Overview

HomeStory Bonus is a home bonus program offered by HomeStory Real Estate Services to help customers buy or sell their new home. When customers enroll in HomeStory Bonus, they are matched with a certified real estate agent. Customers can use LendingTree to find a mortgage or they can use their own lender. The real estate agent and lender can help them find and finance their next home.

When customers close on their home purchase or sale with their assigned real estate agent, they will receive a bonus between $350 - $6,500 , depending on the sale price of the home. Customers are eligible for the bonus regardless of the lender they use.

By enrolling in the program, you agree to the following Terms & Conditions:

  • I authorize HomeStory Real Estate Services to contact me using an automated dialing or text messaging system, even if the telephone number is a cellular phone or other service for which the party is charged,
  • I agree to the Terms of Service (which includes a provision to receive disclosures and communications in electronic form) and

The bonus will be issued in the form of a check unless otherwise directed by state law and will be sent to the client enrolled in the program within 45 days after closing.
