THE MADRONA GROUP REAL ESTATE FAQ VIDEO SERIES
DISCOUNT BROKERS Vs. FULL SERVICE BROKERS
Jason fox of The Madrona Group real estate team answers the question… “Do Discount Real Estate Brokers Provide The Same Level of Service as Full Service Brokers?”
We recently switched our mobile phone service back to Verizon from the discount service that we had switched to last year. It is true that the bill was less, but we are dependent on our phones and experienced spotty service. We feel like we may have missed important phone calls that lost us money. In the end the small savings was not worth the potential of loosing significantly more money.
I love saving money as much as the next guy. There are places that you cut and places that you don’t.
The bare minimum for listing a home for sale is entering it in the MLS and putting a cell phone picture of the house in the MLS. Here is what we do when we list a home.
Maybe even more important than that is your agents level of engagement in the negotiation portion of the transaction. If your agent is not fully committed to your transaction they might not feel as obligated to fiercely negotiating on your behalf.
The bottom line is that if you go with a discount broker it might end up costing you more money in the long run.
