    NILE is not responsible for and do not endorse any features, content, advertising, products or other materials on or available through Third Party Sites, even if originally accessed via a link on our Sites.

    Your interactions with organizations and/or individuals found on or through the Services, including payment and delivery of goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such organizations and/or individuals. You should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any online or offline transaction with any of these third parties.

    SERVICE-SEPECIFIC TERMS:

    Unless and until a written agency agreement is signed by You and Us, in which You agree to have NILE represent You in the capacity of a real estate broker; We do not owe You the duties imposed by law that real estate brokers owe their clients. Nothing in this Website or in any communications between You and Us should be interpreted as individual advice about Your particular situation. Do not impart confidential information in Your communications with Us unless and until a written agency agreement is signed by You and Us.

    You may choose to engage NILE as your listing agent for selling certain property. Prior to engaging NILE as your listing agent, you will be required to execute an agreement detailing the terms and cost of such engagement as provided to you by NILE (an “Engagement Agreement”). NILE will not act as your listing agent until such document is fully executed by you and NILE. NILE reserves the right to refuse to act as your listing agent for any or no reason.

    In certain markets, a tour agent will meet you to help facilitate visits to homes (“Tour Assistant”). Prior to a home tour, you will receive an email with information about your Tour Assistant. Please note that visiting a home with a Tour Assistant does not establish an agency or contractual relationship between you and that Tour Assistant.

    NILE Estimates. NILE Home Value Estimate, Market Trend Reports and NILE Listing Value Ranges (Collectively, estimates) are calculated using publicly-available information and NILE’s proprietary valuation model built by our in-house team of real estate valuation professionals. It typically takes into account hundreds of data sets related to your home, characteristics and its location.

    NILE Fees and Pricing: NILE is designed to save you time and money through our innovative technologies. We are able to structure our commissions to help you save money because California Business & Professions Code §10147.5 allows every broker to negotiate commission structures that help their clients save: “Notice: The amount or rate of real estate commissions is not fixed by law. They are set by each broker individually and may be negotiable between the seller [or buyer client] and broker.”

    Refunds and Rebates: You understand that Nile Refund amounts are not guaranteed. The incentives, refunds and savings calculations displayed on Nile’s website and social media outlets are estimates based on the Nile default refund and savings rate. Actual refunds or savings may vary and are dependent on purchase price, prevailing market conditions, and other factors. The estimates are not a guarantee or an offer from Nile, our agents or representatives to provide a refund or savings on a specific property. The actual refund you receive (Commission Credit) may be limited, prohibited, or reduced pursuant to the purchase agreement, Lender restrictions, federal Veterans Administration, Federal Housing Administration, and United States Department of Agriculture loan programs, or other state or federal rules, laws, or regulations. If the transaction includes a short sale, additional restrictions may apply. Nile cannot guarantee that lenders will allow buyers to receive 100% distribution of the Buyer Commission Credit. Broker Compensation may change during the closing process due to changes in the terms of sale, and will be finalized only at closing. Therefore, neither Nile, our agents, or representatives make any warranties prior to the close of escrow as to the precise amount of Buyer Commission Credit that you may receive. Our representation fee is determined according to Buyer Terms of Services Agreement. You understand that the fee is calculated based on the final sales price of the Property and not the original listing price. 

    In the event you previously engaged another broker to assist you with real estate service or represent you in connection with the purchase of property, any compensation arrangements you made with that broker or agent are sole and separate from your agreement with NILE and we are under no obligation to cooperate with any previous agreements you made. You further agree to indemnify and hold Nile harmless against any and all claims that Nile is required to pay or share any sales commission in connection with the purchase or sale of such property.

    You acknowledge and agree that NILE is not engaged in rendering advice or information that exceeds the knowledge, education and experience required to perform real estate licensed activity. You agree to seek legal, tax, insurance, title and other desired assistance from appropriate professionals.

    Trusted Lenders. In certain markets, we can connect you to a trusted lender to finance your home purchase.  Qualifying borrowers will receive up to $1,000 off closing costs in the form of a credit from the trusted lender.  This credit is offered by the trusted lender, not NILE, and may be prohibited or reduced on the basis of trusted lender discretion, loan restrictions, seller contributions, or law.

    TCPA. CONSENT TO BE CONTACTED; NOTICES

    If you provide, or have provided, a telephone number to us, you expressly agree that we may contact you at that number in order to provide you with informational and service messages, including via text message and/or by using automated telephone technology.
