Here are some ways a REALTORŪ can help you.
A REALTORŪ knows the market and gives your property maximum exposure through the Local Multiple Listing Service.
A REALTORŪ understands current real estate values and can help you set a realistic, competitive rental rate for your property.
A REALTORŪ frees you from the problems associated with showing property such as phone inquiries and showings.
A REALTORŪ qualifies prospective renters as to what they can afford.
A REALTORŪ maintains objectivity in presenting offers and counter-offers.
A REALTORŪ can advertise your rental on MLS and Realtor.com.
REALTORŪ vs. Licensee
Holding a real estate agent's or real estate broker's license does not make someone a REALTORŪ. Membership in the National Association of REALTORSŪ entitles licensees to use the term "REALTORŪ" on their business cards and in their marketing materials.
Hiring a REALTORŪ means you've retained someone who is committed to continuing education, professionalism, and integrity. The vast majority of REALTORSŪ participate in a local multiple listing service (MLS), which gives you a distinct advantage.
But the main thing that distinguishes a REALTORŪ from someone who's merely licensed by the state to sell real estate is the REALTORŪ Code of Ethics, which requires REALTORSŪ to put their clients' interests first at all times.
What if there's a problem?
The REALTORŪ Code of Ethics is enforced through professional standards committees that are maintained by local boards.The public, as well as members of the board, can bring complaints before the committee. Disciplinary action can consist of suspension or expulsion from membership. A real estate broker or agent who is not a REALTORŪ is governed only by state licensing laws.
In Texas, 50,000 real estate licensees are REALTORSŪ, and hold active membership in both the National Association of REALTORSŪ and the statewide organization, Texas Association of REALTORSŪ.
