Info for Real Estate Buyers and Sellers

In this crazy Real Estate market, not everyone wants to use a Realtor.  I get it, people think they can save some money, and in some cases they might.

Here are some facts that may (or may not) change people's mind:

- 90% of FSBO (For Sale by Owner) homes are sold by a Realtor.  So you might save some money on the list side, but the seller will most likely still pay a commission on the buyer's side.

- While helping people but and sell Real Estate is how a Realtor makes their living, most reputable Realtors are really in the business to help people.

- The Offer to Purchase and Listing Contract are legal documents and while Realtors are not attorney's, they are trained in the ins and outs of the contract and can decipher what can be complicated documents.

-With all the craziness that is happening in the market, it can be reassuring to have someone representing you.  Someone who has your back.  That's what a Realtor does, they have your back.

There are lots of other reasons it's a good idea to use a Realtor.  This is just some food for thought.
