Not all real estate practitioners are REALTORS®. The term REALTOR® is a registered trademark that identifies a real estate
professional who is a member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION of REALTORS® and subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics.
Here's why it pays to work with a REALTOR®.

1. Navigate a complicated process. Buying or selling a home usually requires disclosure forms, inspection
reports, mortgage documents, insurance policies, deeds, and multipage settlement statements. A knowledgeable expert will help
you prepare the best deal, and avoid delays or costly mistakes.

2. Information and opinions. REALTORS® can provide local community information on utilities, zoning, schools, and more. They’
ll also be able to provide objective information about each property. A professional will be able to help you answer these two
important questions: Will the property provide the environment I want for a home or investment? Second, will the property have
resale value when I am ready to sell?

3. Help finding the best property out there. Sometimes the property you are seeking is available but not
actively advertised in the market, and it will take some investigation by your REALTOR® to find all available

4. Negotiating skills. There are many negotiating factors, including but not limited to price, financing,
terms, date of possession, and inclusion or exclusion of repairs, furnishings, or equipment. In addition, the
purchase agreement should provide a period of time for you to complete appropriate inspections and
investigations of the property before you are bound to complete the purchase. Your agent can advise you as to which
investigations and inspections are recommended or required.

5. Property marketing power. Real estate doesn’t sell due to advertising alone. In fact, a large share of real
estate sales comes as the result of a practitioner’s contacts through previous clients, referrals, friends,
and family. When a property is marketed with the help of a REALTOR®, you do not have to allow strangers into your home.
Your REALTOR® will generally prescreen and accompany qualified prospects through your property.

6. Someone who speaks the language. If you don’t know a CMA from a PUD, you can understand why it’s important to work with
a professional who is immersed in the industry and knows the real estate language.

7. Experience. Most people buy and sell only a few homes in a lifetime, usually with quite a few years in between each purchase.
Even if you have done it before, laws and regulations change. REALTORS®, on the other hand, handle hundreds of real estate
transactions over the course of their career. Having an expert on your side is critical.

8. Objective voice. A home often symbolizes family, rest, and security — it’s not just four walls and a
roof. Because of this, homebuying and selling can be an emotional undertaking. And for most people, a home is the biggest
purchase they’ll every make. Having a concerned, but objective, third party helps you stay focused on both the emotional and
financial issues most important to you.
