Best of the Boardwalk Realty Blogs

LA real estate - by Broker Jon Strum

His writings have been picked up by the blog by the New York times and others for insights he has shared regarding Real Estate Agents and the excellence in Service we provide.  Look up the Manifesto on his site if you have time.

I am frequently at his office in Brentwood for training and other events.  It is a honor to work with him and Steve Aguilar who have the highest ethical standards and work ethic.


 


Blog post

You get what you pay for:

Discount brokerage firms have some owners wondering if they can save a percentage point.  But the proof is in the real end result.

Does the seller of the home get the services that they need and the sale price that they deserve?  Often times not.

The lowest end discount shop may not use the professionals that a full service Realtor would use.  Opting for the cheapest alternative.  Whether for the inspector of the home or the property disclosure service.  Faulty information here can leave the homeowner open for costly law suits down the line. 

Frequently the agent at that discount shop is not as available for showing and the marketing campaign to bring the buyers is defiantly smaller.  When a prospective buyer asks for a showing is it acted on with gusto?  Or is it more likely when it is next possible appoint is two days from now?  The information I'm getting is that the hourly paid staff at the regional offices are less inclined to be available.  Leaving the potential buyer to keep looking.  Not getting a warm and welcoming showing.  This reduces your sale ability.

Also the Real Estate Professionals know that they will not get an active participant from the sellers agent and that they will have to work harder to complete the escrow.  Often times for lower commission percentages on the buyers side of the transaction.  Making the agents less than enthusiastic about showing those listings to their customers.

Why start out of the gate with three strikes against you.  Especially in a declining market.  Less demand and less interest will cost you more in the end than the few points you will save by using the discount broker.

Just like you shop for quality food you should also shop for a quality real estate professional in your intended area.

Boardwalk Realty has a Relocation Department so that now mater where in the United States you may be going we can help you find top agents with the skills and market expertise you need.  Ask me about it.  Where are you moving too?
