Realtors are a waste IMHO. Bankers do most of the paper work.
This is why the money board is great, because 95% of OT intelligent posts like these need not even be debunked. But for the 5%, If you think a loan officer(?) spends more hours, sets up more showings, sets up termite inspectors, home inspectors, does more paperwork, and spends more time & money on a buyer or seller, you are seriously misguided.
Now in niche communities where "T-Boy" is selling his house and "Little Ricky" at Dow who fishes with "T-Boy's" cousin "Junior" wants to buy it, yes a realtor is seldom needed.
Outside of that is a gigantic world full of unique situations where a realtor is paramount.
Ask your banker
