Compare & Frequently Asked Questions

Q & A Living Room

You may have a few questions or are wondering how we compare to other agents or companies.

Here is a quick collection of some of the questions people ask, along with our answers. If you still have a question, do not hesitate to contact us or give us a call. We are happy to answer any questions that you may have.

Q:  Cash Offer vs Full Market Listing- What is 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, and Zillow that will buy your home for cash. Is it a good deal and the right option for you?  We can help you solicit cash offers from all of these competing corporate and private investors. Every situation is different, 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 are always a con. There is no seller representation with this option.

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. This includes soliciting multiple cash offers from all competing investors & private investors.

Q: Should I buy an 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 a modern design.   Pick your designer upgrades and semi-customize your home to taste. New neighborhood designs, as well.  Drawbacks: Final price is unknown until your design center appointment. There is no back yard, in most cases. You are restricted to locations that will accommodate new construction.

Existing homes: Typically more home for the money, established neighborhoods, known price and complete yard spaces

Drawbacks: less energy efficient, wear and tear on home, needed updates

It is important to have a trusted and 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 Brokers?

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 professionals and experienced in the field.  We are involved in our community and give back locally. We have a one on one relationship with our clients for dedicated service and the personal touch. We are proud of our sales record and resume. We are happy to share this with you.

Brokerage:  We are a small, local family owned brokerage 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 and transparency as a company and small business.  Our name is on the door, we are proud of who we are and what we provide. Our client reviews accurately describe what it is like to work with us. References are available upon request, we have many happy clients that are happy to share their story with you of their journey selling, buying and building with Newman Realty.

“I started Newman Realty as a way of serving and educating my clients in a way that I could be proud of years later. It was not easy and I am proud of what we have accomplished and the successes that we have experienced in the Gilbert community that I love. With a selective team of full time agents that I personally mentored. We believe that what we provide is different, valuable and honestly helps people. For me, that is what it is all about.”    -Mark Newman  Broker|Owner

We offer end to end personal service from a trusted, experienced and reliable agent.  Our professional home buying & building systems all start with a buyer consultation, then searching and touring homes and communities with unmatched counsel.  We write the contracts and negotiate vigorously.

Q: How do you help Home Sellers?

Q:  Is there any obligation when I submit my info?

A: There is absolutely zero obligation. We can chat in person or a quick call  to answer any questions that you may have.
