When you're buying a home, here's what an agent who's a REALTOR® can do for you.

What Exactly Is a REALTOR®?

Not every salesperson with a license to sell real estate is a REALTOR®. Here are the reasons why you should know the difference.

Why You Should Use a REALTOR®

Buying a home is the largest investment most people will make. Work with a REALTOR® to get the best professional advice out there.

Buying or selling a home is the biggest investment most people will ever make, but not all real estate agents are equal.
Find out how the experience and training of a REALTOR® can help you get into your dream home.


Act as An Expert Guide

Buying a home typically requires a variety of forms, reports, disclosures, and other legal and financial documents. A knowledgeable real estate agent will know what's required in your market, helping you avoid delays and costly mistakes. Also, there’s a lot of jargon involved in a real estate transaction; you want to work with a professional who can speak the language.


Offer Objective Information and Opinions

A great real estate agent will guide you through the home search with an unbiased eye, helping you meet your buying objectives while staying within your budget. Agents are also a great source when you have questions about local amenities, utilities, zoning rules, contractors, and more.


Give You Expanded Search Power

You want access to the full range of opportunities. Using a cooperative system called the multiple listing service, your agent can help you evaluate all active listings that meet your criteria, alert you to listings soon to come on the market and provide data on recent sales. Your agent can also save you time by helping you winnow away properties that are still appearing on public sites but are no longer on the market.


Stand in Your Corner During Negotiations

There are many factors up for discussion in any real estate transaction—from price to repairs to possession date. A real estate professional who’s representing you will look at the transaction from your perspective, helping you negotiate a purchase agreement that meets your needs and allows you to do due diligence before you’re bound to the purchase.


Ensure an Up-To-Date Experience

Most people buy only a few homes in a lifetime, usually with quite a few years between purchases. Even if you’ve bought a home before, laws and regulations change. Real estate practitioners may handle hundreds or thousands of transactions over the course of their career.


Be Your Rock During Emotional Moments

A home is so much more than four walls and a roof. And for most buyers, a home is the biggest purchase they’ll ever make. Having a concerned, but objective, third party helps you stay focused on the issues most important to you when emotions threaten to sink an otherwise sound transaction.


Provide Fair and Ethical Treatment

When you're interviewing agents, ask if
they're a REALTOR®, a member of the National Association of
REALTORS®. Every member must adhere to the REALTOR® Code of
Ethics, which is based on professionalism, serving the interests of clients, and
protecting the public.
