Ok the media paints the picture of the greedy Realtor in sublte ways all the time. We never see the story of how th Realtor saved the day and helped the people unless the NAR runs an ad. Te free media we get is how overpaid and greedy the Realtors are and how you might not need them at all.
Fact is for sale by owners and people who buy homes on their own run into more trouble that people who hire a professional to help them. Not only that, with all of the required schooling and education on forms that keep getting more and more complex, why would you want to open yourself up to the liability of going it alone.
The problem isn't Realtors are not worth their money, the only problem is if you don't pick the right one. Most Realtors are advertising pick me, pick me, because they only get paid when they help you buy or sell a home. The thing is you have to be able to get past the advertising and do your due diligence to see who really knows their stuff. If you do this you should be better than OK.
Let's face it, Buying or selling a home is tough and problems come up. You need a great agent to make sure you get to the finish line. So don't just automatically say you don't want help like when people walk into a store and the clerk asks if they may help you and you say no thanks, but then turn around and ask where xyz is. It's a natural reaction to the mass marketing. But don't go so overboard that you run from the people who you need to help you. Just talk to them and get some information you don't have to commit right then, but if you find a good agent start working with them. They can help you avoid early mistakes.
