The Story of Homes for Heroes
Homes for Heroes was established shortly after 9/11 in an effort to give back to our firefighters, EMS, law enforcement, military (active, reserves and veterans), healthcare professionals and teachers who selflessly serve others every day and who seldom get recognized or thanked.
How We Give Back
As your local Homes for Heroes representatives, we are honored to have joined this nationwide network of real estate, mortgage professionals and local business affiliates in order to help our heroes save money when buying, selling, or refinancing a home.
How Does it Work?
Looking to Purchase a Home?
If you are a buyer in Florida, Homes for Heroes will send you a Hero Rewards Check after your closing. Each check will be different but when you work with a real estate specialist to buy a home, you can save 0.7% of the home purchase price, or $700 on every $100,000 of the purchase price. In addition, we have Business Affiliate Partners that will give you additional savings on necessary fees including those for a mortgage, inspection, homeowner’s insurance, moving and title work.
Looking to Sell Your Home?
When you work with our real estate specialist to sell a home, you will receive a 25% credit on the specialist’s gross commission at closing. Another 5% of the specialist’s gross commission will be sent to Homes for Heroes. If you work with our approved Homes for Heroes Lender you can save on the appraisal cost and if you work with our title specialist, you can save an average of $150 on title services.
Giving Back Doesn’t Stop There!
Homes for Heroes donates a portion of its earnings to the Homes for Heroes Foundation every time a hero buys or sells a home using the Homes for Heroes Home Benefit program. This way every hero that takes advantage of the program also helps other heroes in need! Homes for Heroes has also committed to covering all Homes for Heroes Foundation expenses. That means 100% of the dollars donated will be used to help other heroes.
In addition, the Foundation awards Hero Grants to local nonprofit charities serving our heroes in need. Local Homes for Heroes affiliates, like us, nominate nonprofits to make the most meaningful impact on our hero communities.
