Obtaining a mortgage from HSBC is optional and not required to participate in HomeStory Real Estate Services’ home rewards program. The borrower may arrange for financing with any lender.
Qualifying for the reward requires utilizing a HomeStory certified real estate agent to complete the real estate buy and/or sell transaction. If you are currently working with a real estate agent, this is not a solicitation. A reward is not available where prohibited by state law, including Alaska, Iowa, Louisiana and Missouri. An agent commission reduction, rebate, and/or credit may be available for sellers in lieu of the reward in Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Oregon and should be discussed with the agent upon enrollment. No reward will be available for buyers in Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Oregon. Rewards in Kansas and Tennessee are required to be delivered by gift card. In Kansas, the reward is set to $1,000 regardless of the sale price of the property.

HomeStory will issue a reward 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 of closing. Depending on state regulations highlighted above, the reward amount is based on the sale price of the home purchased and/or sold and cannot exceed $6,500 per buy or sell transaction. Real estate agent fees and commissions still apply. Short sale transactions do not qualify for the reward. Employer-sponsored relocations may preclude participation in the reward program offering.
