Rebate programs are used by suppliers in the homebuilding industry to incent and reward builders for specifying the products to be used in their homes. However, national builders receive more money than smaller builders.
Not any more!
Builder Sourcing has worked with many of the top suppliers in the industry to provide a national builder program to its builder members. Here are our Supplier Members:
We provide national builder rebate programs to our Builder Members. We make it easy to use our programs and receive an immediate impact on results. Builders can choose the suppliers they wish to work with and acquire their products at the best possible value.
Our goal is to increase the dollars per home collected from rebate programs while making it easy and simple to participate. As part of our program, we handle all of the paperwork associated with the billing, collecting and reconciling of your rebate programs. A quarterly closings report is essentially all we need. We take it from there.
What makes us important to our Builder Members?
- Maximum savings available, no hassle process
- Value is recognized, we improve results, we are easy to work with
- Our philosophy with our Supplier Members is to do as much business as possible with as few suppliers as possible and offer them exclusivity within our group. This results in much higher deal values
We have increased the money received from rebate programs by tracking and monitoring compliance to these programs against company guidelines and aggressive billing and collection of all monies due. We provide the systems and reports to achieve your desired results.
In addition to saving money, builders create stronger strategic relationships with some of the top manufacturers in the industry. This has led to collaboration on home construction and design. The result? Better value and better homes.
Frequently Asked Questions
Builder Sourcing’s Rebate Program is designed to maximize the money received from the builder programs available in the market. In those categories where you are already using one of our Supplier Member’s products, the program available from them is made available to you if you so choose.
In those categories that you are not already using one of our Supplier Member’s products and you are open to looking at their offering, we will work with them to review their products and program. It is your choice if you wish to switch to them or not.
Our goal is to maximize the value possible from each category where rebate and incentive programs are available that represent good choices for you.
Here are some of the questions we typically hear and their answers to help you better understand our program and how it works.
That is not a problem as we do not change how you typically buy materials for the home. Essentially, the manufacturers will pay you, the builder, a rebate on the materials purchased by your sub-contractors provided you specify their products to be used. For example, typically, your painter buys the paint for your projects. They still will. If you ask or direct them to use our paint supplier, our supplier will track the paint purchased by your painter for the paint used on your homes and pay you a rebate for the products purchased on your behalf.
In the vast majority of cases, the suppliers in our program have agreed to match competitor pricing for any like items so that you are assured that you (your subcontractors) will never pay more for a product in our program versus what you are currently using. Essentially, in the paint example, when you ask your painter to switch to using the supplier that is part of our program, if they do not mention that their upfront costs are any different, then there is no issue. Should they say that there is a price difference, you would tell us and we would tell the supplier. It is their responsibility to adjust the pricing in that case. Therefore, you always know that the rebate truly equals the savings.
Yes, you qualify for the rebate.
If you already get a rebate from one of the preferred suppliers, you would be able to choose to receive the better rebate from us. If you already get a rebate from another supplier in the same category, you would make the decision to either stay with your current supplier and continue to receive your current rebate or to switch to the preferred supplier and receive the higher rebate. The choice is yours.
We do not change the normal distribution of products and services to your homes. We essentially create purchase contracts for you with our suppliers so that when you or your sub-contractors use their products and services purchased locally the normal way, you receive either special pricing or a rebate with an up-front price match guarantee.
No. Our program is such that you use only what makes sense for you to use. We will, in those cases, not present you with the programs from those suppliers that you do not wish to use as we can not have their deal values leveraged to receive better programs from other suppliers. Only when the Supplier Member is valid choice will their programs be shared.
Tell them that they are correct if you are buying direct from the manufacturer and when you are guaranteeing that manufacturer a particular volume level.
However, you can tell them that rebate programs do work, especially in those cases where the materials get to the job site from a subcontractor or distributor and not direct from the manufacturer themselves or when volume discounts are involved. In most categories in home building, builders and their sub-contractors are buying materials through distribution. Therefore, there is no other way for a manufacturer to pass on a discount or an incentive to an individual customer of that distributor. The only way for them to pass on this reward is in the form of a rebate.
