Six reasons you need a Realtor
Courtesy of the National Association of Realtors1A real estate transaction is complicated. In most cases, buying or selling a home requires disclosure forms, inspection reports, mortgage documents, insurance policies, deeds and multi-page government-mandated settlement statements. A knowledgeable guide through this complexity can help you avoid delays or costly mistakes.2Selling or buying a home is time consuming. It usually takes 60 days or so for the transaction to close after an offer is accepted.3Real estate has its own language. If you don’t know a CMA from a PUD, you can understand why it’s important to work with someone who speaks that language.4Realtors have done it before. Most people buy and sell only a few homes in a lifetime, usually with quite a few years in between each purchase. And even if you’ve done it before, laws and regulations change. That’s why having an expert on your side is critical.5Realtors provide objectivity. Since a home often symbolizes family, rest and security- not just four walls and roof – homeselling or buying is often a very emotional undertaking. And for most people, a home is the biggest purchase they’ll ever make. Having a concerned, but objective, third party helps you keep focused on both the business and emotional issues most important to you.6Realtors are members of the National Association of Realtors, a trade organization of nearly 1 million members nationwide.
