Should You Use a Realtor?

In today’s world there are several options for selling and buying a home. You can use a Realtor, you can use a real estate agent, or you can just wing it on your own. What’s the best option for you?!

We’re not going to tell you what you should or shouldn’t do…(We’re not that bossy), but we will tell you why using a Realtor may be in your best interest!


Realtor vs. Real Estate Agent

Is there a difference? Yes! Both are licensed to deal with real estate, but a Realtor belongs to the National Association of REALTORS®. This means that we live and work by the REALTOR® Code of Ethics, which is a set of standards that we are strictly held to. We will help you to the best of our ability and will put your interests ahead of our own. We are dedicated to helping you have a positive home buying/selling experience.

What Agents do and How They’re Paid

Whether you use a Realtor or a real estate agent, the pay works the same. If you’re purchasing a home, you don’t pay your Realtor. Only the selling party pays the agent(s) involved – both the selling and buying agent. 

Is this fair for sellers? As a selling agent, we work 24/7 to put your house on the market and advertise it. Specifically here at Springs Realty, we not only put a sign in your yard, we also post your home on the MLS and market it through our various social media channels (totaling over 2,500 followers). We work to get your house as much exposure as possible!

Along with this, we deal with the other agents and potential buyers. We will handle all the scheduling and will help you with the tedious paperwork and negotiating process. Having worked in the industry for several years, we know it like the backs of our hands and will make sure you understand it as well. 


You Don’t Just get the Agent

Depending on the Realtor (or real estate agent) you decide to work with, each has they’re own network of brokers, loan officers, inspectors, etc. You don’t have to worry about finding each of these professionals individually. We work very closely with individuals in all of these professions and can help you find exactly who and what you need. 




Overall, we want to make your home buying/selling process as easy as possible. Moving is a big part of life and can be difficult. We don’t want you to have unnecessary stress or frustration. Let us help you! We promise to make the process as stress-free and seamless as possible!
