Why Hire a Realtor?

Let's face it, searching for a home seems easy enough.  Afterall, 70% of buyers survey that the internet was their greatest source for home searches.  So why then should a buyer hire a Realtor?

1. Protection - a Realtor owes their client fiduciary duties.  In MN this means that a Realtor is required by law to work in their clients best interests. Realtors hold a license and are insured as well; so if something goes wrong with a transaction and the buyer becomes liable; so does their Realtor. This may help the buyer be protected under law. One wouldn't sue another individual without an attorney.  One shouldn't buy a home without a Realtor.

2. It's FREE - It's hard to believe that it's FREE for a buyer to hire a Realtor, but it is absolutely true.  In Minnesota, Realtors are paid by the Listing Company.  This means that the buyer doesn't have a Realtor Commission.  For More information on how Realtors do get paid, visit the buyer's 

3. Knowledge & Negotiation - Purchasing a home is one of the most stressful times a person can go through in their lives.  A Realtor will use their knowledge of Foreclosures, Short Sales, and Traditional sales to help you get the best possible price of a home.

By the way, not every home that is listed for sale is available for sale.  In fact, only Realtors have access to some of this information.  When we talk about Negotiating a purchase agreement we are talking about numbers that most people deal with a couple times in their lifetime.  Realtors deal with these numbers every single day.  Realtors take the emotional attachment away from the negotiation and have the knowledge to handle the daunting paperwork.

4. Facilitate the Closing - Again, most people buy and sell real estate a few times in their lifetime.  Realtors deal with the pending and closing process every day.  Realtors are better prepared to facilitate the transaction to a close than is a consumer.
