Buyers: Should Commission Fees Sway Your Decision Between Agents?
Does working with a top-quality agent on your home purchase cost more than hiring a first-time agent? Actually, no, and today I’m going to explain why.
Most buyers, especially first-time homebuyers, aren’t aware that the responsibility of paying their agent’s commission actually falls on the seller’s shoulders. In real estate transactions, sellers cover commission fees for both agents involved.
Therefore, it will cost you, as a buyer, no more to work with a professional broker who has worked for decades in the industry and closed thousands of transaction than it would for you to hire a less-qualified, newer agent.
Also, Team Sandy Blanton Realty is the only brokerage in a 200-mile radius that pays its agents a salary, rather than just a commission. This means our agents won’t be breathing down their client’s neck or trying to rush through a deal just so they can get a paycheck.
"We would love to show you the difference that working with Team Sandy Blanton Realty can make."
Think of it this way: If you were having brain surgery and it would cost you the same amount of money to hire a surgeon fresh out of medical school versus one who has performed the procedure you’re having thousands of times, who would you choose? Of course you’d opt for the more experienced professional, and you should make the same choice when it comes to your real estate needs.
There are many reasons to have a professional broker in your corner when it comes time to purchase a home, and we would love to show you the difference that working with Team Sandy Blanton Realty can make.
