Watch: Super Charge Your Rebate Earnings Through Direct Rebates
March 24, 2021
Direct rebates are a great way for multifamily builders to earn rebate revenue of $300,000 or more per year, and what makes them even better is that you can continue to source your products the same way you always have and still qualify for them. HomeSphere’s Mike Rosenbach and Patrick Brandon discuss everything you need to know about direct rebates in the on-demand webinar, “How to Super Charge Your Rebate Earnings Through Direct Rebates.”
This short webinar will take you from what direct rebates are, to how you earn them and more. If you’re already earning rebates through the HomeSphere Rebate Program, adding direct rebate agreements will only add more valuable rebate revenue. If you’re not a HomeSphere builder, you can learn about the HomeSphere Rebate Program here, and our Direct Rebate Management services here.

Highlights from the webinar
Direct rebates are negotiated between the builder and the manufacturer and offer the maximum potential for cash back on product usage. Direct rebate agreements are also a great way to build a direct relationship with a brand.
But Rosenbach and Brandon hear common misconceptions all the time, like:
- “I can only earn direct rebates by purchasing directly from the manufacturer.”
- “I’m too small to qualify for rebates.”
- “If I sign up for direct rebates, my distributor will change my pricing.”
These misconceptions are addressed directly in the webinar, but don't worry, they're just misconceptions. Respectively, you can continue to source your products in the same way, direct rebates are absolutely worth pursuing for any mid- to large-sized builder and your distributor will not increase their prices because rebates don't impact their profits.

How direct rebates work
Rosenbach and Brandon also take viewers through the steps of how direct rebates work. In the traditional way, it typically goes like this:
- You (the builder) identify the products you use in the largest volume.
- You then reach out to the brands you use to try to set a meeting.
- If you can get an ear at the manufacturer, you’re ready to start negotiations.
Realistically, any part of this process can go wrong if you don’t have the time, have bad contacts or you miss out on potential rebate-eligible products so you’re not getting back your full rebate potential.
That’s why Rosenbach and Brandon also discuss a better way to earn direct rebates. Sign up to see how.
