REALTORS LOWER YOUR RISK - When you are represented by a Realtor, you can rely on them to advise and navigate you through the transaction process in a legal and safe manner. Your agent will make sure that you take the appropriate steps to protect yourself. Incredibly, many states do not have laws or regulatory bodies in place that protect all aspects of home buying.
REALTORS UNDERSTAND THE COMPLEXITY OF THE TRANSACTION - Consumer mandated disclosures, environmental and structural reports, and other liabilities have turned the home transfer process into a complicated minefield. Realtors work with contracts daily and can fully understand which points are harmful and beneficial to you. They work in conjunction with legal professionals and abide by strict code of ethics.
