3. Insider Knowledge: Not only do they know the market, they also have access to know what homes aren’t on the market (pocket listings), but looking for buyers.

4. Identify Your Needs: You probably have a ton of things you’re looking for in a home. REALTORS® are able to rein you in and prioritize your needs so it’s not impossible to find your dream home!
