Why use a Realtor?
Here's a great link to an article, "Why Use a Realtor?", if you are considering buying or selling a home.
Why use a Realtor?
Working with a Realtor® can save you time, money and trouble. Nearly eight out of ten consumers believe Realtors® can show buyers a better selection of homes than they can find on their own, according to an independent survey of the general public released by the National Association of REALTORS®.
Seventy-eight percent of the general public believe real estate professionals offer them a broader selection of housing alternatives than they would otherwise find. Seventy-four percent agree that using a real estate broker saves time, and 70 percent agree that real estate professionals make buying or selling a home much easier.
What's the difference between a Realtor® and other real estate professionals?
While there are plenty of real estate professionals to choose from, the best bet in terms of ethical, efficient and reliable service is a Realtor®. A Realtor® is a real estate licensee who's decided to take an extra step toward professionalism and high ethical standards. That step: joining the local, state and national Associations of Realtors®.
You see, not all real estate licensees are Realtors®, although many people confuse the terms. More than 24,000 of the 37,000 active real estate licensees in Virginia are members of the Virginia Association REALTORS®, entitling them to use our registered mark, REALTOR®, after their name.
Unlike many real estate practitioners who simply hold business licenses, Realtors® have taken additional steps to become members of the local association of Realtors® and have agreed to act under and adhere to a strict Code of Ethics. Whether you're buying a home or selling a home, you can be certain your Realtor® will provide you more service and more expertise. Isn't that a guarantee you want, when you're making the biggest investment of your life?
Take a look at our REALTORS® Role booklet, designed to help you understand the role of a REALTOR® in your real estate transactions:
