Recently, we had a young couple ask to see some properties. During the conversation about their wants and needs, it came up that they had already viewed some real estate with another agent, but couldn’t afford to keep paying them for every showing.
Wait. Back that train up.
Yes, that’s right. The agent was charging them a showing fee every time they went to see a house. After they had forked out $200, they decided that perhaps they needed a different agent.
Home showings don’t cost you a thing
You see, that’s our job. We show houses. We sell houses. We help people find the right place in New Orleans to call home. And we’re paid for that privilege. But we don’t get paid by charging for every single showing we do.
Now, I realize that there are a ton of different business models out there. This may be how that particular brokerage has decided to operate. It’s perfectly legal. That doesn’t mean we have to do the same, though.
How we do it
We’d rather hang out with you for the day. Get to know you. Get to know your likes and dislikes. And then use that knowledge to help match you to the perfect place. We don’t get paid until you get a home that makes you happy.
And that’s the way we think it should be.
