Thought I would touch on this topic, because I still see a lot of buyers and sellers taking some serious risks regarding their new homes!
Most People don’t realize what a Realtors job actually is….Our job is to protect the buyer or Seller during one of the biggest transactions of their lives! A Realtor will provide you with Monitoring, Negotiating, Marketing and provide you security to the transaction. The transfer of Real Estate is a delicate thing, everything should be handled in a very legal sense, including properly filled out Offers, Listing Contracts, a Realtor has a lot of connections and expertise to properly bring your new home to closing, in the “right” way!
Without using a Realtor and their knowledge, you take some big risks. Risking being sued by the other party, risking that other party running away from the contract and or sale, and possibly losing lots of money. There are a lot of Common mistakes that buyers and sellers might make out there by themselves… It seriously scares me when I hear buyers are writing their own offers, not having inspections or sellers are selling their own homes without the proper disclosures, some people even write their own offers on a For Sale by Owner home…. There is a lot that can go wrong!
Why would you not want the biggest decision of your life to be protected by someone who is working for YOU, and has a great deal of expertise regarding selling and or buying homes? Trust me we do this everyday, and we WANT you to be protected, that is our goal!
And, of course, We’re working for you at nearly all hours of the day and night…whether you need more info on a home or just someone to talk to in order to feel at ease with the offer you just put in. This is the biggest financial and sometimes, emotional decision of your life, and guiding you through it isn’t a responsibility Realtors take lightly. We are always here to help and make the transaction as easy on you as possible, and be your greatest asset to your greatest benefit!
