Lexington-Davidson County Association of REALTORS®
Do you recognize anyone in the photo above? They are your local realtors. They are also your friends and neighbors, colleagues, the people you see at church, the grocery store, at lunch, and at ballgames. Their kids and grand kids go to school with your kids and grand kids. They are an integral part of the community and give back to their small town in big ways.
So when it comes to buying or selling a home, why do we look for help elsewhere? If you think local, independent realtors can’t take care of your home buying/selling needs like a large, national name-brand chain, you should think again. Real estate is all about location, location, location. And you need an expert who knows not only the proverbial “lay of the land,” but can offer their exclusive insights and vast knowledge on not only zoning restrictions and tax bases, but also school systems, daycares, and commute times. Local realtors have their finger on the pulse of their home-town real estate market, which is advantageous when making one of the most important purchases in your life. They will also have knowledge of buyers who may be looking for a home like yours or sellers who haven’t put their home on the market yet. These professionals can offer a fresh perspective and unique outlook to the ever-changing landscape of real estate.
I’m sure you’ve heard the “Shop Local” mantra, designed to help small businesses grow the local economy by keeping retail dollars within the community. Each dollar spent at an independent business returns three times more money to the local economy than one spent at a chain. Local businesses are owned by people who live in the community, are less likely to leave, and are more invested in the community’s future. When you use local realtors, the return is far-reaching. In turn, they will recommend local attorneys, lenders, builders, inspectors, surveyors and interior designers, generating a lasting impact on local entrepreneurs.
So if you’re in the market to buy or sell your home or property, call a local. By choosing an independent real estate professional, not only will you enjoy a more distinctive, personalized experience, but you’re also helping to strengthen the economic base of your community. These realtors are one-of-a-kind, and help make our community unique, which ultimately attracts visitors who turn into neighbors. Give them an opportunity to show how they can help you.
