Prevu is on a mission to save you money when you are buying an apartment in NYC. By combining expert, salaried real estateagents with state of the art technology, Prevu is able to pass along significant savings with its industry-leading Smart Buyer™ Rebate - we rebate two-thirds of the commission we receive in a home purchase to buyers like you.
Prevu is dedicated to providing our customers with the highest level of service. Our agents are licensed real estate salespeople and brokers in New York State, members of the Real Estate Board of New York (commonly referred to as REBNY), and are local experts with years of experience serving the New York City real estate market.

Imagine buying your dream apartment in NYC plus receiving a big check! That’s right, you get more when buying an apartment with Prevu’s Smart Buyer™ Rebate.
In NYC, most homeowners pay 6% to sell their home with 3% being paid to the listing broker and 3% paid to the buyer’s broker. When Prevu represents a buyer, we rebate two-thirds of our commission to the buyer - therefore you receive a cash back rebate of 2% of your purchase price. This compares to the 0% you would receive working with traditional brokers. For example, if you buy a $2,000,000 apartment in NYC with Prevu, you would receive a Smart Buyer™ Rebate of up to $40,000 vs $0 with traditional real estate brokers.
Prevu is able to pass along such significant savings thanks to our combination of expert, salaried agents and technology. Our team has created an end-to-end platform for homebuyers in New York City providing a smart home buying experience.
