Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice

All REALTORS® must abide by NAR's Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. The Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice outline duties that REALTORS® have to clients and customers, the public, and other REALTORS®. While the Code of Ethics establishes obligations that may be higher than those mandated by law, in any instance where the Code of Ethics and the law conflict, the obligations of the law must take precedence.

Sellers, would you clear up the clutter in your home if you could increase your asking price by 3% to 5%? A survey done by the Consumer Reports National Research Center shows that this and other changes will do just that.

According to Consumer Reports, basic cleaning and decluttering, simple kitchen and bathroom upgrades, painting the right spaces, and sprucing up your curb appeal are all low-cost investments that can land you hundreds of dollars in return.

Get tips on what fixes to make, the cost if you do them yourself or hire an expert, and how much of a return you get on those investments in "Top 5 ways to boost the value of your home" from Consumer Reports.

A Guide to Buying and Selling a Home

Like finding the right house, selecting a REALTOR® you can trust and comfortably work with is paramount. Just as you wouldn't be casual in the selection of your doctor or your attorney, you shouldn't take the selection of your REALTOR® lightly. Indeed, the best way to find such a professional is through recommendations from family and friends. Of course, you should interview several REALTORS® before you choose one. If you're selling your home, you should ask the candidates how they plan to market your home, what pricing advice they can offer, and what other suggestions they can provide to further enhance the desirability of your home.
