This is great news for you, the seller, as well as for those looking to buy a home.

For Sellers, the more potential buyers for your home, means a quicker sale and potentially more money.

Amazon is one of the best when it comes to marketing.  With their name recognition along with the Coldwell Banker brand, your home will get top of mind marketing, awareness and a powerful way to attract home buyers to your home, which is what you want.

With this type of marketing, along with the proper guidance on pricing your home correctly from an experienced real estate agent who have closed many real estate transactions means an unbeatable strategy for selling your home.

This program is perfect for the buyer because of Amazon’s great incentive for them to use this program.

How The Amazon Turnkey Program Works To Attract Home Buyers

Amazon has millions of subscribers and great name recognition.  Through their promotion of the Turnkey program on their site, Amazon.com, as well as other ads and marketing, a potential buyer will fill out an application online and then receive a call from an Amazon representative, who will ask them some questions to make sure they qualify for the program.

If they qualify, they will stay on the phone with the Amazon representative, while she connects with a local agent.  Once she connects with the agent, then both the potential buyer and the local agent are connected.

The potential buyer is then assigned to that local real estate agent, who have been pre-screened to qualify as a preferred agent for the Amazon Turnkey program.

Once connected, the Amazon representative is off of the phone and both the potential buyer and the local agent begins their conversation to start the search and buying process.

What Is The Benefit For The Buyer?

The incentive for the buyer on Amazon’s Turnkey program is $1000 to $5000 of move-in credit of Amazon home products and services. 

What better way to attract home buyers than giving them free stuff, right?

Amazon’s goal is to turn the buyer’s new house into a home.

The buyer will have their choice of home services, such as TV mount installation, furniture assembly, deep cleaning, etc and/or towards products like Ring, Alexa, Echo, etc.

All of the above will be completely set up so the buyer can just move in and enjoy their new home.

The amount of credit will depend on the purchase price of the home.

  • Below $150k =  $0
  • $150k to $399k = $1,000
  • $400k to $699k = $2,500
  • $700k +  = $5,000
