Why trust in a Realtor is still king
In the age of the internet, the way we buy many things has changed.
Some people might have imagined that Realtors would become obsolete in the same way as travel agents and video stores, but a 2018 report by the National Association of Realtors found that 87 percent of buyers still worked with a real estate agent to find their home.
In fact, not only do the majority of home buyers work with a real estate agent or broker, but the number of people putting their trust in Realtors has increased from 69 percent in 2001.
Buying a home is a big decision. For many, it may be the most important investment they ever make. So, it's not surprising that the majority of people still put their trust in a professional.
In addition to assistance in the home search process, a Realtor can provide crucial information and an objective opinion on local schools, neighborhoods, zoning and utilities. The home buying process is full of unfamiliar jargon and technical documents, but a Realtor can give expert advice to help you prepare the best deal and avoid costly mistakes.
