Compare & Frequently Asked Questions

Maybe you have a few questions or wondering how to compare us to other agents or companies. That’s okay; most people do. So here’s a quick collection of some of the questions people ask us… along with our answers. If you still have a question, don’t hesitate to contact us (or give us a call) and we’ll be happy to answer it for you.

Q:  Cash Offer vs Full Market Listing- What’s the difference?

A:  Have you seen paid advertising from companies offering to buy your home for cash?  Today’s real estate market has a number of companies like Open-door, Offer pad, & Zillow to name a few that will buy your home for cash, but is it a good deal and the right way for you to go?  We can help you solicit cash offers from all of these competing corporate & private investors. Every situation is different but here are some of the general pros and cons

Pros_Cash Offer: Quick close, no showings, no time on market

Cons_Cash Offer:  One buyer vs everybody that may want to buy your home, (so no real competition). High fees for convenience. No seller representation

We regularly assist sellers by discussing their goals and reviewing their options.  We can help with a cash sale to an investment company and a traditional sale with our unique & results driven sales system.  We’ll show you all your options so you can make an educated decision. Including soliciting multiple cash offers from all competing investors & private investors.

Q:  Should I buy and existing home or build a new one?

A:  There are benefits and drawbacks to both.  Here are some of the differences:

New construction: Energy efficient home with modern design.   Pick your designer upgrades and semi customize your home to taste. New neighborhood designs.  Drawbacks:  Final price is unknown until your design center appointment.  No back yard in most cases.  Restricted to locations that will accommodate new construction.

Existing homes: Typically more home for the money.  Established neighborhoods. Known price. Complete yard spaces.   Drawbacks: less energy efficient.  Wear and tear. Needed updates.

It’s important to have trusted, experienced counsel when considering purchasing a new home whether it is being built or purchased from another seller.  Free consultations to determine what may be the best option for you.  We represent buyers of new and existing homes at no cost to our buyer clients!

Q: How are you different from other Realtors or Brokerages?

A: There are a lot of people doing what we do, some do it well, others not so much.  Here are some of the things that set us apart both as individual agents and as a company:

Agents:  We are full time, professional and experienced.  We are involved in our community and give back locally.  We have a 1 on 1 relationship with our clients for dedicated service and the personal touch. We are proud of our sales record & resume and happy to share.

Brokerage:  We are small, local family owned and collaborate as a close knit group. We are not a franchise office.  All agents are directly supervised and mentored by the broker/owner.  We have low overhead and low turnover.  We strive for excellence & transparency as a company and small business.  Our name is on the door, we are proud of who we are & what we provide. Our client reviews accurately describes what its like to work with us. References upon request, we have many happy clients that are happy to share thier story of selling, buying & building with Newman Realty.

I started Newman Realty as a way of serving & educating my clients in a way that would I could be proud of. Years later,  and it was not easy & I am proud of what we have accomplished both in the Gilbert community I love & the success’s that we have experienced, with a selective team of full time agents that I personally mentored. We believe that what we provide is different, valuable & honestly helps people. For me, that’s what it’s all about. – Mark Newman Owner/Broker
