What Our Clients Say

    PAUL S
    Moved from Manhattan to Stamford, CT

    Having spent 10+ years in NY and working in the financial industry, it was natural for me to settle and raise a family here.

    However, the city area being expensive and not suited for raising a family, it was important for me and my wife to explore the suburbs.

    We made a choice to keep one car in our family and so it was important to ensure public transport service from the suburb that we choose.

    NextBurb helped us identify the suburbs that were appropriate for both commute options and also educated us on the schools and places of interest to ensure we are making the right decision for our family.

    Eric M
    Relocated from San Francisco to Boston

    Boston has so many good suburbs that I was totally confused on how to shortlist them.

    But Nitesh at Nextburb helped me shortlist 5 towns that were best match for my lifestyle and budget. It was like having my own personal data scientist - who would comb through data to find my perfect match. Nextburb gave me piece of mind that I picked the right place to move to.

    Melissa A
    Relocated from Cambridge, MA to Shrewsbury, MA

    The moment I got a remote job, I was thrilled to buy a house far away from the city.

    But I still preferred to stay around 60-90 minutes in Boston for the love of the city.

    Tried to reach out to real-estate agents to get advice and suggestions but they always had a bias towards the towns where they operated.

    Thankfully I discovered NextBurb and was able to explore everything by myself.

FAQs

  • How And Why Are Nextburb’s Services Free?

    In a typical home transaction, the seller pays all the commissions.

    The seller decides on the amount and how that commission is split.

    When a client buys a home through Nextburb partner agent, they share part of the commission with us. 

    This allows us to offer a great service for FREE to our clients.

    Now, for your understanding, let’s take an example of how this plays out.

    1. Let’s say a seller hires his/her own seller’s agent
    2. The seller agrees to a commission which will be paid to this agent when the deal closes. 
    3. Now, this seller’s agent spreads the word in his/her network of buyer’s agents, and decides how to split the commission he/she receives with the buyer's agent. NextBurb’s partner agents are part of such buyer agent networks. 
    4. When a client buys a home through NextBurb, our partner agent shares part of the commission with Nextburb. This is how we monetize this business.

     

    You, the buyer, do not shell out a single penny for this service.

  • When’s The Right Time To Choose The Concierge Service?

    The Concierge Service is ideal for work-from-home professionals and families. 

    1. You are in a hurry, with no time for research, or have done some research but still need a trusted partner in your home buying journey.
    2. You have a fast approaching deadline for moving. Say you must move within the next 90-120 days.
    3. If you are keen to explore neighborhood options and get the fit right for your family - this decision is a big deal, after all.
    4. You want to avoid regrets of moving just because you get a good home deal.  What you don’t see are mismatched lifestyles or the right fit with the community
    5. Lastly, when you wish to avoid multiple moves when shifting to a new city.  With NextBurb, you relocate only once and go straight to your dream home.

  • How Is Nextburb Different From A Typical Real Estate Firm?

    To begin with, we work only with buyers.

    Unlike real estate agents, we do not have any specific sales targets or any home inventory to push. 

    1. Our priority is to help you find a neighborhood you’ll love, one that fits your interests and profile the best.
    2. We have Advisors who recommend neighborhoods to you based on your unique preferences. 
    3. We will then connect you with experienced agents in the chosen neighborhoods. 
    4. The agents will arrange tours and share rich insights and stories about the locality. Plus show you the homes for sale. 
    5. You then determine the right fit before you make any decision to buy your new home. No pressure.
