Ask A REALTOR® Hotline 2016

by Arizona REALTORS® on October 17, 2016

On October 25, members of the Arizona Association of REALTORS® (AAR) will spend six hours fielding call-in questions from potential homebuyers and sellers during the annual Ask A REALTOR® Hotline event.

“This is just another way Arizona REALTORS® are committed to helping the community,” said AAR 2016 President Paula Serven. “Home buying and selling can become complicated and our members are dedicated to guiding consumers along the process.”

Top questions from last year’s hotline included:

  • Why should I use a REALTOR®?
  • How do I get my home ready for the market?
  • What should I look for when buying a home?
  • How much home can I afford?
  • What should I disclose before selling?
  • What rights do I have as a renter/landlord?

To Ask-A-REALTOR® questions, call 602.351.2444 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on October 25, 2016.

On that same day, Serven and 2017 President Paula Monthofer will appear live on ABC15’s Sonoran Living between 9 and 10 a.m. and on 12News’Arizona Midday between 1 to 2 p.m.
