In real estate, one of the best qualities a REALTOR can have is for the details of a transaction. Federal law requires that HUD settlement statements be ready 24 hours before a scheduled closing. As a REALTOR I always have the settlement statements sent to me ahead of time in order to look it over in case there are errors that need to be corrected before the actual closing. This is another way that REALTORS can help to ensure a smooth closing transaction.
If you are thinking of buying or selling, talk to a REALTOR who can give you the information you need to make an informed decision.
