Estate Agent Commission Advance


Home > Estate Agent Commission Advance


Real estate professionals work tirelessly behind the scenes to assist their clients in selling their property. The estate agent invests time, resources, and huge effort goes into marketing, research, home inspections, negotiating offers, and numerous other activities to secure a sale. We understand the efforts that go into selling a property and the difficulties that estate agents professions deal with.

For the hard work, a successful sale earns the estate agent a percentage of the sale price from the seller. The commission is normally due upon registration of the property. The estate agent/agency may need to wait for weeks and sometimes months before they see their money. Meanwhile business and life need to continue.

Taurus has a solution for both Estate Agents and Agencies who require a portion of their due commission upfront. Taurus can bridge up to 80% of commission due on residential or commercial property sales. The easy process allows estate agent professionals to unlock well-deserved funds easily and fast.

Bridging finance is short term advance that helps release money locked up in a property transaction. The repayment is made in full when the property transaction concludes.

The registration process to transfer a property typically takes 60 to 90 days from when the sale agreement is signed until the sale is registered. Unfortunately, the estate agent professional only receives their money at the end of the process.

Taurus property bridging provides an upfront cash advance for estate agents/agencies to access a portion of their due commission immediately without having to wait.

Taurus Capital can advance up to 80% of the net commission due. No advance is too large or too small.

The charge will depend on how much money you choose to take upfront as well as the duration to transfer.

Upon contacting Taurus, you will be assigned a consultant who will explain the process in more detail as well as provide a free detailed no-obligation quotation.

A Taurus commission advance is not a loan. This provides several advantages:

• Improved cash flow - Unlike a loan, you do not have the burden or risk of making monthly instalments. A Taurus commission advance relates to a one-off property transaction so is settled in full on registration.

• Transparent charge- The Taurus charge is fixed in advance meaning that you won’t pay interest on interest (compound interest) as you will with a loan provider.

• Commission backed - The application criteria is based on your commission due, not you. Therefore, blacklisted clients are welcome to apply.

We understand that time is of the essence. We pay on the same day as the signing of documents.
