5 Reasons You Need a REALTOR®


1.  Buying a home is time consuming.  Homes in our area stay on the market for an average of 165 days.   And it usually takes another 30 – 45 days or so for the transaction to close after an offer is accepted.

We can help you search for a home before you spend any time and gas via MLS search.

    2.  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.
    We can provide you the current market trends.

      3.  A real estate transaction is complicated. In most cases, buying a home requires disclosure forms, inspection reports, mortgage documents, insurance policies, deeds, and multi-page government-mandated settlement statements.
      We can guide you through this complexity to help you avoid delays or costly mistakes.

        4.  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.
        We keep up to date on continuing education and regulations.

             5.  REALTORS® provide objectivity. Since a home often symbolizes family, rest, and security, not just four walls and roof, 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. 
          We are committed to providing you professional service in your search for your “home”.
