Why You Should Choose Compass to Buy Your Home

May 3, 2019

Savvy home buyers know that the best home buying experience is had when a real estate agent is part of their team. From finding the best location and property to negotiating the best purchase price and terms, a real estate agent has the buyer’s best interests in mind.

Your real estate agent can save you time, effort, and money when you are buying your new home. It makes sense to rely on the experience and training of a real estate agent to create the best possible experience from both a personal and financial point of view.

It is up to your real estate agent to stay current on market trends, lifestyles of their clients, and optimal home design. An agent who is very familiar with the areas they serve will also be aware of both the aesthetic and environmental impact that homes can make on a neighbourhood.

Real Estate Technologies

All great real estate agents avail themselves of the latest technologies to serve their clients in achieving their goals. In the past few years, some new platforms have been launched into the market.

Two of the most popular real estate platforms are Compass and Redfin. While both are useful, Compass surpasses Redfin in some key areas. Let’s compare the two with statistics that are the most relevant to today’s real estate purchases.

Compass vs Redfin

In the last 12 months, Compass has generated $2.6+ billion in San Francisco home sales representing buyers versus $250 million by Redfin. Regarding the average sale price to list price percentage while acting as a buyer’s agent, Compass’ performance shows buyers paying 3.1% less as a percentage of list price than Redfin’s performance over the same time period.

Compass Outperforms Redfin Across the Board

The number of $2+ million homes sold where Compass represented buyer and seller came in at over 900 versus less than 100 for Redfin over the past 12 months of activity. When comparing Compass vs Redfin, Compass is the clear winner, performing substantially better overall.
