7 Reasons to Work
®
With a REALTOR
1. Ethical treatment.
Every REALTOR must adhere to a strict code
of ethics, which is based on professionalism and
protection of the public. As a REALTOR®’s client,
you can expect honest and ethical treatment in all
transaction-related matters. The first obligation is to
you, the client.

2. An expert guide.
Buying a home usually requires dozens of forms,
reports, disclosures, and other technical documents.
A knowledgeable expert will help you prepare the
best deal, and avoid delays or costly mistakes. Also,
there’s a lot of jargon involved, so you want to work
with a professional who can speak the language.

3. Objective information and opinions.
REALTORS® can provide local information on
utilities, zoning, schools, and more. They also
have objective information about each property.
REALTORs® can use that data to help you
determine if the property has what you need. By
understanding both your needs and search area,
they can also point out neighborhoods you don’t
know much about but that might suit your needs
better than you’d thought.

4. Expanded search power.
Sometimes properties are available but not actively
advertised. A REALTOR® can help you find
opportunities not listed on home search sites and
can help you avoid out-of-date listings that might be
showing up as available online but are no longer on
the market.

5. Negotiation knowledge.
There are many factors up for discussion in a deal.
A REALTOR® will look at every angle from your
perspective, including crafting a purchase agreement
that allows enough time for you to complete
inspections and investigations of the property
before you are bound to complete the purchase.

6. Up-to-date experience.
Most people buy only a few homes in their lifetime,
usually with quite a few years in between each
purchase. Even if you’ve done it before, laws and
regulations change. REALTORS® handle hundreds
of transactions over the course of their career.

7. Your rock during emotional
moments.
A home is so much more than four walls and a
roof. And for most people, property represents
the biggest purchase they’ll ever make. Having a
concerned, but objective, third party helps you stay
focused on the issues most important to you.
