Recently we published an article pointing out some of the issues involved with choosing which Realtor® you might have represent you. Something not covered in that post was the question of why choose a Realtor® at all.
For Sale by Owner (FSBO) is no doubt a method you have seen employed. Is this the right approach for you? Chances are…NO. The legal issues are enormous! It is the largest financial decision most people will make in their LIFETIMES! Are these issues you feel comfortable handling yourself? Or would you rather have the assistance of trained professionals at your disposal? Especially since the cost is ZERO! (More on that later.)
While there are thousands of licensed real estate salespeople and brokers in the state of California, only about 1/2 of them are Realtors®. As with most trade groups, there is a standard that must be met and maintained in order to belong. That elevated standard for a Realtor® is well above that required by the state for a license. And it reaches across state lines as NAR, the National Association of Realtors®.
Above I stated that the cost of hiring a Realtor® is ZERO! No, we don’t work for free. But the monies we make come from the transaction, not your pocket. Just like the steering wheel is a part of the cost your car, transactional costs are figured into the selling price of a home. It is a statistical fact that transactions involving a Realtor® produce a higher profit than those that don’t, and a much higher completion rate. SO, not only were the Realtor’s® services at no cost to you, you actually profit! How good is that?
