A lot of potential homebuyers, when they look around for the right real estate agent, might be tempted to wonder whether the North GA Real Estate company they choose to go with matters at all. Sure, some of them have bigger names than others, or better marketing materials, but doesn’t it really just come down to working with an agent who’s a good fit?
In many ways, it does. Choosing the right real estate professional help you is far more important than worrying about the company listed on their business cards. Still, there are reasons that the agency or brokerage firm you choose matters.
That’s because, in a way, buying a home is a bit like purchasing a car. Your real estate agent isn’t going to have built your house any more than your auto dealer will have put together your next four door sedan. So why choose any one dealership over the other? You might have some ideas about pricing or location, but the best reason is that you think you’ll get better service at one or another.
The same is true of different real estate companies. Because each has its own hiring and training practices, commission structures, standard contracts, etc., different firms tend to develop different personalities over time. One company might hire a certain kind of real estate agent, one that’s patient rather than aggressive for example, versus another. Or, they could specialize in working with a certain kind of buyer, or helping to find a particular kind of property. These are just a couple of examples, but the point is that every real estate agency you check out is going to have its own distinctive feel.
Well this ever actually matter to you, as a home buyer? It might not, but it’s worth taking the time to investigate a few different options just in case. In the same way that you wouldn’t want to hire the first realtor that comes along, neither should you sign any agreement with the company until you know there a good fit for you.
