Selling: Why Use a Realtor®
A real estate agent can help you understand everything you need to know about the home selling process. Not all real estate licensees are the same; only those who are members of NAR (National Association of Realtors®) are properly called Realtors®. Realtors® subscribe to a strict Code of Ethics and are expected to maintain a higher level of knowledge of the process of buying and selling real estate.
Real estate transactions are one of the biggest financial dealings of most people's lifetime; sometimes even exceeding $200,000. If you had a $200,000 legal question, would you deal with it yourself or would you contact an attorney? Considering the small upside cost and the large downside risk, it would be wise to work with a professional Realtor® when you are selling your home.
