Selling a home requires many decisions to be made!
Why not hire an agent that can help make these decisions easier?
Many of us have heard of the friends who have listed their home without a REALTOR® and was successful at it. Against popular belief, many REALTOR®'s are not here to swindle sellers out of money. So, what are the responsibilities of a REALTOR® and what are the benefits of hiring a REALTOR® to sell your home? In a nut shell, a REALTOR® is hired to
- Promote the sellers best interests
- Be loyal to the seller
- Follow the sellers lawful instructions
- Provide the seller with all material facts that could influence their decision
- Use reasonable skill, care, and diligence and
- Account for all money we handle for them.
This means that your REALTOR® is an advocate for the seller and is hired to provide the sellers with the facts, and all information that will allow the seller to make the most informed and educated decisions when selling their home (see Working with Real Estate Agents brochure link below).
Brokers bring the buyers! Buyers get their information straight from the listing agents. Your broker will advertise your home on the Multiple Listing Service, provide brochures, fliers and a sign out front, just listed postcard mailings and possibly an open house.

Brokers also sell homes for a living! We have the experience, the knowledge and the access to all the things needed to get your home sold! Did you know that it is required by law for a seller to provide a disclosure form to the buyer at the time of their first offer? What about that there needs to be a Lead Based Paint Addendum for any home built prior to 1978? If these forms are not provided, there can be consequences put on the seller.
