What a REALTOR Does
Let Us Work For You
REALTORS® Association of Indian River County members share a cooperative relationship with all real estate offices within our community. That means we can show you properties that are listed with us or any other companies in our area.
WORKING WITH A REALTOR® should be a productive and pleasant experience for you and your family.
The REALTOR®’s primary objective is to locate and help you purchase a house that meets your needs. He or she does this in a professional, efficient manner so that your purchase proceeds smoothly and your time is not wasted.
There are a few local “GROUND RULES” observed by members of the REALTORS® Association of Indian River County which we want you to be aware:
We can show you ANY property listed by ANY member of the REALTORS® Association in Indian River County area. In fact, most REALTORS®’ sales are “co-op sales.”
A very important point to remember is that your sales agent should accompany you “ACROSS THE THRESHOLD” of any new or existing home listed by another REALTOR® This includes Sunday Open Houses as well as showings by appointment.
If you go to an Open House or a Builders Model Center without your sales Agent, be sure to follow these steps:
* Immediately tell the REALTOR® holding the Open House that you are working with your own sales Agent.
* Ask the REALTOR® holding the Open House if they will cooperate with your sales Agent.
* Sign the guest register and add the name of your sales Agent.
* If you are interested in purchasing that home, call your sales Agent.
Each year we sell a number of new homes. Most of our builders are either listed with a REALTOR® or have their own sales staff who cooperate with us. Again, this makes it easy for us to expose you to everything in your price range.
