What a REALTOR® can do for you
                  What a REALTOR® Can Do for You

The REALTOR® you work with could be one of your most valuable resources. Unlike
many real estate agents who are simply licensed by their state to do business,
REALTORS® have taken additional steps to become members of the local board of
REALTORS® and have agreed to act under and adhere to a strict Code of Ethics.


*   A REALTOR® can help you determine how much home you can afford. Often a
REALTOR® can suggest ways to accrue the down payment and explain alternative
financing methods.

*   A REALTOR®, in addition to knowing the local money market, also can tell you what
personal and financial data to bring with you when you apply for a loan.

*    A REALTOR® is already familiar with current real estate values, taxes, utility costs,
municipal services and facilities, and may be aware of local zoning changes that           
could affect your decision to buy.

*    A REALTOR® can usually research your housing needs in advance through a          
     Multiple Listing Service--even if you are relocating from another city.

*    A REALTOR® can show you only those homes best suited to your needs--size,       
     style, features, location, accessibility to schools, transportation, shopping and        
     other personal preferences.

*    A REALTOR® often can suggest simple, imaginative changes that make a home      
      more suitable for you and improve its utility and value.

*    A REALTOR® is sensitive to the importance you place on this major commitment    
     you are about to make. Look for a real estate professional to facilitate negotiation   
     of a win-win agreement that will satisfy both you and the seller.
