A real estate transaction is complicated. In most cases, buying or selling
a home requires disclosure forms, inspection reports, mortgage documents,
insurance policies, deeds, and multi-page government-mandated settlement
statements. A knowledgeable guide through this complexity can help you
avoid delays or costly mistakes.
Selling or buying a home is time consuming. Even in a strong market,
homes in our area may stay on the market for weeks, or even months. And
it usually takes another 30-60 days or so for the transaction to close
after an offer is accepted.
Real estate has its own language. If you don’t know a CMA from
a PUD, you can understand why it’s important to work with someone
who speaks that language.
REALTORS have done it before. Most people buy and sell only a
few homes in a lifetime, usually with quite a few years in between each
purchase. And even if you’ve done it before, laws and regulations
change. That’s why having an expert on your side is critical.
REALTORS provide objectivity. Since a home often symbolizes family,
rest, and security, not just four walls and roof, homeselling or buying
is often a very emotional undertaking. And for most people, a home is the
biggest purchase they’ll ever make. Having a concerned, but objective,
third party helps you keep focused on both the business and emotional issues
most important to you.
