Why you need us ... please?

HowRealtorsHelp purports to 'give you the information you need to make an educated decision' on whether to 'go it alone (in buying or selling a house) or use a REALTOR'.

I admit to previously being undecided, but the use of uppercase resolved the lingering doubts I had about paying exorbitant fees for questionable value.

Some representative warnings
Will you really “save” the real estate commission?

When buyers see a home for sale ‘by the owner’, they see a bargain. They imagine the REALTORS® fee going into their pocket, not yours.

Are you familiar with real estate law?

Complicated and ever changing, real estate law governs nearly every phase of selling your home. One mis-step, and an entire deal can fall through, or worse, a lawsuit can come your way.

I sense some panic from the realtor industry.

I can imagine similar 'educational sites' from the major IDPs, e.g. 'Things you Need to Know Before Self-Asserting'.
