Having a home office isn’t as big of an advantage for real estate agents as it once was. Lake Homes Realty’s CEO, Glenn Phillip, explains why your potential agent should not have an office.
- Office Cost vs. Service Capabilities: Money is being invested in an office space, and not reinvested in efforts to help agents buy/sell a home.
- Reasons Change: Before the digital age, offices were necessary for running the business. Now, all important documents/information can be stored on computers, phones, etc.
- Lake Home Buyers are Rarely Local: Potential buyers are not limited to the local community. Most of the time they will come from all across the nation.
- Value of Time: Stopping by the office before touring homes can feel like an unnecessary detour, especially for out-of-town buyers.
Having an office is outdated for a real estate agent. Having one takes investment efforts away from buying/ selling homes and can become a waste of time!
