FAQ-01.png

What if I'm not sure if I'm going to make a move?

That's exactly the purpose of our business model, to help you make the most informed decision for your family. Our agent-partners understand that we offer education first, and let the real estate follow. You will never feel pressure to buy a home, your Community Specialist and carefully vetted agent work together to bring you a real estate experience that allows you to make a decision from a point of knowledge.

What if I want to rent first?

If you follow the advice of our Community Specialists, our comprehensive process will replace the need to rent, and avoid disrupting your family with multiple moves. You will be guided so that you feel confident in your purchase decision when the right time comes. 

I'm curious about the suburbs, but don't want to move for 1-2 years - is it too early?

This IS the time to begin your search! Many of our clients start the process 6 months, 1, 2, or even 3 years in advance of their ideal timing. The best part is that you get to spend time going to Farmers Markets, Concerts in the Park, and street fairs in the future town that will become your hometown.

How can your services be offered for free?

We have a unique and simple model that offers our comprehensive services to all of our clients for no fee. Sellers pay 100% of the commission (to both the Buyer's Agent and Seller's Agent). When you work with our carefully curated buyer's agent, a portion of their proceeds goes to Search The Burbs. This allows us to maintain our high level of service to you without charging you a penny....ever! Our goal is to exceed your expectations with every interaction. Our pledge to you is: No Risk, No Obligation, and best of all....our services are FREE!

Why choose to work with Search the Burbs versus navigating on my own?

You get one chance to choose the right "forever town." It's very difficult to change towns after you are immersed, make friends, and your children make friends. Our Community Specialists and agent-partners do not have an agenda to sell you a house, they want to educate you on the community first. The housing will be there when you are ready!! When you navigate on your own, you will constantly be exposed to agents that want to sell their listing. At every turn, our team has your best interest at heart. We want you to be so thrilled with the process that you will tell your friends and family!
