Why Should I Hire a REALTOR®?

Why Should I Hire a REALTOR®?

There are some things you can do in life without a professional, but buying and selling properties should not be one of them. You’re trusting a REALTOR® with your most valuable possession, your home. REALTORS® take this responsibility very seriously. Here’s what your REALTOR® brings to the table:

  • Trained Professional

REALTORS® undergo extensive pre-licensing courses in order to obtain credentials for practicing in real estate.

  • Continuously Trained

REALTORS® keep pace with the times by taking continuing education courses to upgrade their knowledge. It is imperative for them to be forever learning. Things change within housing markets quickly and consistently.

  • By The Book

A REALTOR® must be registered under provincial laws that govern exactly how real estate can and cannot be traded. These regulations are your legal guarantee of professional behavior.

  • Ethical Businessperson

REALTORS® must adhere to the extensive Code of Ethics of the Canadian Real Estate Association. Several provinces have additional codes of ethics governing real estate professionals. Your interests must always be put first.

  • Opportunity For Recourse

Should you have concerns about the professional behavior of a REALTOR®, provincial regulators and your local real estate board or association take these matters very seriously and work quickly to resolve any issues.

  • Local Board’s MLS® System

A Board’s MLS® system is the single most powerful tool for buying and selling a home. Your REALTOR® can provide you with exclusive features of the Board’s MLS® System, such as immediate notification when new properties are listed. You don’t have to wait for it to be posted on a web site.

A home is many things to different people. It could be your first home, an investment property, or a place to retire. Whatever the reason, the common factor is this is an incredibly big purchase and having help from a professional makes a huge difference. The more people you have in your corner the more empowered you will be.
