Why should I work with a Realtor to buy my house. I can search on the internet....

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with LemonTree Realty

A Realtor brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the business of buying a home.  In fact, a licensed real estate professional provides much more than the service of helping you find the home of your dreams.  Realtors are not just sales agents.  They are expert negotiators, seasoned financial advisors, and superb navigators around the local neighborhood.  They are members of the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and must abide by a Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice enforced by the NAR.  A professional Realtor is your best resource when approaching to buy a home

Let Me Be Your Guide —

•    Working with me can save you endless amounts of time, money and frustration.
•    I know the housing market inside and out and can help you avoid many a “wild goose chase.”
•    I can help you with any house even if it is listed elsewhere, new construction with a builder or is being sold by the owner directly.
•    I know the best lenders in the area; I can help you get pre-qualified for a mortgage; and discuss down payments, assistance programs, closing costs, and monthly payment options.
•    I am an excellent source for general information about the community, specific information about schools, churches, shopping, transportation, plus tips on house inspections and pricing.
•    I am experienced at presenting your offer to the homeowner and can help you through the process of negotiating the best deal.  I bring objectivity to the buying transaction, and can point out advantages and disadvantages of a particular property.

And the BEST thing is that all this help won’t cost you a cent.  The seller pays the commission to Realtors®.

"Always work with a Realtor when selling a home. Would you hire a Realtor who has never sold a house before, knows nothing
about real estate law, contract negotiation, or sales?  Of course not – but that describes you. Don’t hire yourself – hire a real estate sales professional."
~ Ric Edelman

Hi, Heather,

Great point here.  I have found that I enjoy the mortgage process much more when working with a buyer who has good Realtor representation versus working with one buying a FSBO, or one who thinks they can do it on her own.  Realtors do so much to make the process smoother!  By the way , I hope you enjoyed listening to the radio show!
