The other day someone asked me about potential legal ramifications of a decision they needed to make. Inside my head, this little voice said, "Wait a minute, do I look like an attorney?"
Then that little voice's evil twin. Ms. Ego, preened a little and was so flattered that they thought I knew SO much. (And that path leads to peril.)
Not so fast. I am not an attorney, I don't have a license to practice law, and I was very quick to refer them to legal counsel.
And it's true, I do know a lot.......about real estate. But, in selling homes, it is important for agents to remember that they are NOT:
- Police departments
- Air quality experts
- Mold experts
- Etc., etc.
So when your agent refers you to an expert for a bona fide answer to a specific question, remember that they are not ducking the issue, but instead are looking out for your best interests at all times.
