Real Estate transactions involve one of the biggest financial investments most people will ever experience. It would be foolish to consider a deal in real estate without the professional assistance of a REALTOR®. All real estate licensees are not the same. Only real estate licensees who are members of the National Association of REALTORS® are properly called REALTORS®. They proudly display the REALTOR® “” logo on business cards or other marketing literature.
REALTORS® subscribe to a strict code of ethics and are expected to maintain a higher level of knowledge of the process of buying and selling real estate. When you are ready to buy or sell property here in Southern Utah, you need to consider the following aspects of the transaction: Do you have the time, energy, sources of information, and contracts to do the job yourself? Without the benefit of a real estate professional, will you purchase for less or sell for more? Considering the small upside cost and the large downside risk, why would anyone attempt a real estate transaction without the professional assistance of a REALTOR®?
Please contact me with any questions about the difference between a real estate agent and a REALTOR®. I would be happy to share the REALTOR® code of ethics with you. You may also visit the Washington County Board of REALTORS®.
