Long & Foster Rewards Terms & Conditions

How to calculate savings

The Long & Foster Rewards Program (“Rewards”) is a homebuyer program offered by The Long & Foster Companies, Inc. (“Long & Foster”). The Long & Foster family of companies includes Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc. dba Virginia Properties, Evers & Company Real Estate, and Northrop Realty (collectively, “Long & Foster Real Estate”), Prosperity Home Mortgage, LLC (“PHM”) and various affiliated settlement providers listed below (each, “Long & Foster Settlement”). Long & Foster Real Estate provides real estate brokerage services; PHM offers residential mortgage financing; and Long & Foster Settlement provides title insurance and/or closing services.

Eligibility. Rewards benefits are available solely to consumers (“consumers” or “you”) who enroll in the Long & Foster Rewards program. Purchase a home in an eligible area with a closing price over $150,000 with the assistance of the Long & Foster agent that was assigned to you. As part of Rewards, you have the right to choose your settlement service providers. For example, you may choose to use Long & Foster Real Estate and PHM but not Long & Foster Settlement in connection with your residential home purchase. Consumers meeting all applicable requirements are entitled to the incentives outlined in the Rewards Benefits section below if they use Long & Foster Real Estate, PHM and/or Long & Foster Settlement. “Reserving Benefits” does not obligate you to avail yourself of this program or any settlement services in the future.

Affiliated Business Arrangement Disclosure. As is set forth in Long & Foster’s separate Affiliated Business Arrangement Disclosure (“ABAD”), available at site.longandfoster.com/rewards/pages/abad, Long & Foster Real Estate has affiliated business relationships with PHM, Long & Foster Settlement, and other providers (together, the “Affiliated Companies”). Each of the Affiliated Companies is indirectly owned, in whole or in part, by HomeServices of America, Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway, Inc. affiliate. Any referral by one of the Affiliated Companies to another may provide the referring company, its affiliates, and/or their employees with a financial or other benefit. You are NOT required to use any Affiliated Company to do business with Long & Foster. See ABAD for further detail, including estimated charges.

No Required Use under Rewards. While we have assembled the Rewards team for you and offer Rewards benefits only if you take advantage of the Rewards program, participation in the program is optional. You are not required to participate in Rewards or to use any particular Affiliated Company to obtain brokerage services from Long & Foster Real Estate, financing from PHM, or settlement services from another affiliate.

Rewards Team: If you use PHM for mortgage financing, your loan originator in the mortgage process will be an employee of PHM, not an employee of Long & Foster Real Estate or Long & Foster Settlements. If you use a Long & Foster Settlements provider for closing and/or title services, your settlement and/or title agent will be employed solely by that Long & Foster Settlement provider.

Rewards Benefits:

Consumers who buy a home with Long & Foster (the “Subject Property”), using the agent that was assigned to you, and choose to use the following Affiliated Companies in connection with that purchase under the Program are eligible for incentives, subject to certain additional limitations, as set forth below.
