Do You Have To Use a Realtor When Buying a Home?

Hi everyone. This is your Tampa
Realtor Lance Mohr and in this video I’m going to go over a question I get
every once in a while and that is do you have to use a realtor when you buy a
home now this isn’t a question that I get all
too often but over my 20-plus years I have gotten it on occasion and I just
ran across it this week so I didn’t want to address it do you have to use a
realtor when you buy a home and the answer is absolutely not of course you
don’t matter of fact a few years ago I sold my home in California right outside
of LA to my sister we didn’t even use a purchase contract I basically just wrote
all the information on a single sheet of paper
typed it up I signed it dated it my sister signed it dated it gave it to the
title company it was that easy it wasn’t a big deal at all or you might be buying
a home through someone who’s selling it themselves maybe a for sale by owner and
they don’t have the representation of a realtor you don’t have a realtor you
could give the contract if you do a contract or whatever you do now if you
know know a person I would highly recommend not only doing a contract but
maybe going to a real estate attorney and having them draw something up or at
least look over whatever you’re putting together whatever contract but of course
you do not have to use a real estate agent a lot of times people will use
real estate agents because if you find a good agent it’s gonna just be a lot
easier process they could really save you a lot of time they could walk you
through everything bring up stuff that you probably don’t know because on
average someone buys a home every eight years and if you get a really good
productive real estate agent they’re gonna sell 30 50 100 plus homes a year
so that’s the reason why people use real estate agents and it doesn’t cost them
anything whether you’re buying a new home or a pre-owned home so anyhow you
don’t have to use a real estate agent but whatever way you do go I wish you
the best of luck I will put a video up here if you are looking at hiring an
agent it how to choose a real estate agent now
I’ll actually put another one up here on how to choose a lender if you need a
loan so I hope this video helps you and I wish you all the best of luck you
