What happens if the closing is delayed?
We know unexpected things happen all the time in real estate. For that reason, if your closing is delayed, we recommend that you apply for a Delayed Closing Agreement by informing Advanced Commission of the new close of escrow date. This is our way of keeping your advance costs low! There are also other options available, listed below:
- Pay the purchased commission amount back in full.
- Submit a replacement sale or sales to Advanced Commission. Pay a closing extension fee for a ten-day extension of the grace period for Pending Advances. Listing Advances are charged every 30 days for extensions.
What happens if the sale falls through?
If a sale fails to close you may repay your advance with a future commission. You may also choose an option from the list below:
- Pay the purchased commission amount back in full.
- Submit a replacement sale or sales to Advanced Commission.
- Pay a closing extension fee for a ten-day extension of the grace period.

Are commission advances tax deductible?

How will I receive my commission advance?
Once your application has been approved and both parties have signed the contracts, we will wire transfer the funds directly into your bank account. It will be available within 24 hours if the wire was completed before 2 pm PST.
How do I repay advanced commission?
It’s simple! Your broker will be asked to sign a Commission Disbursement Form during your application process. This form requests that Advanced Commission receive payment directly from the settlement company. If for some reason the settlement company fails to repay us, it is up to the agent to do so.
What supporting documents need to be included during the process?
To process your advance faster, we will need copies of:
- Driver’s License
- Voided check or bank information (we do not accept prepaid cards)
- MLS Production Report in the last 12 months (must show property address, date sold and you as the agent)
- Bank Approval Letter if applicable
- Sales contract for Pending Advance
- Listing agreements if applying for a Listing Advance
Can I have multiple advances going at the same time?
No. In the interest of both parties, we require that your current commission advance be repaid before applying for a new advance.
Will anyone know I have received a commission advance?
You may rest assured that the process of getting a commission advance is extremely confidential. We will not inform any buyers or sellers involved in your transactions that you are working with us.
