Buying or selling real estate?
Then you need to know what you can expect from a REALTOR®!
REALTORS® are obligated to provide accountability, confidentiality, disclosure, competence, obedience and loyalty. They can provide you with valuable market information and help out in your decision making process. Have you thought about zoning? Property tax? Utility costs? Your REALTOR® probably has!
Your satisfaction is their business!
So expect your REALTOR® to provide you with a positive experience! Real estate is based on relationships. When you work with a REALTOR®, you form what is called an agency relationship with both the REALTOR® and his or her brokerage (the real estate company, its branch offices, and all of its salespeople). This relationship authorizes the agent to act on your behalf in negotiations and other aspects of buying or selling property. If you go this route, ensure you have a written and signed contract outlining the obligations you and the agent have to one another, as well as terms of payment.
