Why You Need A REALTOR®

A real estate transaction is a complicated transaction. In most cases, buying or selling a home requires disclosure forms, inspection reports, mortgage documents, insurance policies, deeds, and multi-page government-mandated settlement statements. A Menifee real estate agent with the knowledge and experience to guide you through this complex process, avoiding delays or costly mistake, is priceless.

Selling or buying a home is time consuming. Homes in our area stay on the market for an average of 30-90 days. And it usually takes another 30 days or so for the transaction to close after an offer is accepted.

Real estate has its own language. If you don’t know a CMA from a PUD, you can understand why it’s important to work with someone who speaks that language.
REALTORS® have done it before. Most people buy and sell only a few homes in a lifetime, usually with quite a few years in between each purchase. And even if you’ve done it before, laws and regulations change. That is why having an expert on your side is critical.

REALTORS® provide objectivity. Since a home often symbolizes family, rest, and security, not just four walls and roof, home selling or buying is often a very emotional undertaking. For most people, a home is the biggest purchase they’ll ever make. Having a concerned, but objective, third party helps you keep focused on both the business and emotional issues most important to you.
