The Final and Most Important way to Protect Yourself in my own humbled opinion.
10. Choose A REALTOR®
A REALTOR® can help guide buyers through the process of buying a home. REALTORS® typically have valuable knowledge regarding the price at which other homes in a neighborhood sold, and how to negotiate various terms in a purchase and sale agreement and the features of different homes. REALTORS® can also provide buyers with and help them fill out a pre-printed purchase and sale agreement form. REALTORS® routinely work with and, upon request, can provide buyers with the names of attorneys, mortgage lenders, home inspectors, termite companies and persons providing other services relating to real estate transactions. REALTORS® agree to abide by a Code of Ethics in their professional dealings. Therefore, when buyers need help in finding the right home, they should always choose a REALTOR® First!
