REALTORS duties to NW Indiana Home Sellers

 REALTORS Duties to Clients and Customers is defined in the NAR Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice

The minimum standards of practice a consumer can expect when using the services of a REALTOR are clearly defined in the Code of Ethics of the National Association of REALTORS (NAR).


Some of the general public may not be aware of these rules which guide our decision making in choosing to do business with a prospective client or customer.


One example is #3 of 16  of our duties to clients and customers, it applies specifically to listing appointments : 


Standard of Practice 1-3 states:

    "REALTORS®, in attempting to secure a listing, shall not deliberately mislead the owner as to market value."  **

    Facts such as recent Multiple Listing Service SOLD comps in the market area of the home are presented to Northwest Indiana Home Sellers.

    Further data like visual inspection of the property condition and features by the REALTOR is needed to determine a price range for the homes LOCATION.

    If there is a huge discrepancy between the NW Indiana home sellers opinion of worth and the statistics, we ask to see a recent appraisal of their property.

    If there is none available, we suggest they obtain a Real Estate Appraisal by a licensed certified Appraiser, familiar with the market area, to provide a market value in writing.

    Straight Talk - We will never tell a client what they want to hear if it is not reality.
