SIX TRUTHS OF HAMPTON ROADS REAL ESTATE
There are six truths that most people do not know about buying and selling real estate in Hampton Roads that will show you why the Hampton Roads Group, LLC's innovative approach is the only one that really makes sense.

There is no such thing as a "standard" commission. Commission rates can vary by broker and by agent, and you are free to shop around for the best price!
A seller has to appeal to two customers: the potential buyer AND the buyer's agent. This is why it is so difficult to offer less commission to the buyer's agent. This is also why it is so important to find a listing agent who will negotiate their commission.

There is a difference between a real estate agent and a REALTOR®. While both can help you buy or sell a home, REALTORS® are real estate professionals who have voluntarily agreed to be held to a higher ethical standard.
Many people attempt to sell their home themselves in order to save money, but that can be very scary. What if you could save money and have the help of a professional REALTOR®? That sounds like a "win/win"!
