RISMEDIA, April 12, 2007-If you're looking to maximize sales and minimize risk-and who isn't?-NAR's REALTOR Benefitssm Program has the tools you need to help you become more informed and productive. Realtor Benefits Publications offer more than 100 publications and products to educate real estate professionals and their clients about topics ranging from legal issues to risk management and marketing. They are filled with practical advice and insight from recognized experts and authors to keep you and your agents more informed.

New Official NAR Consumer Guides

Two new publications, The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® Guide to Home Buying and The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® Guide to Home Selling, present a comprehensive picture for consumers of the home-buying and -selling process. The books are the latest in a series developed jointly by NAR and John Wiley & Sons, a major national publisher.

These first-ever official home-buying and -selling guides from NAR combine the experience of NAR with the industry knowledge of Blanche Evans, editor of Realty Times. The Guide to Home Buying provides a complete picture of the process of purchasing a home with a focus on issues of concern to first-time buyers. The Guide to Home Selling outlines the process of selling a home, presenting a variety of issues for homeowners to consider.

In another new publication, All Real Estate is Local, author and NAR Chief Economist David Lereah reveals the essential steps to building wealth in real estate the local way, that is, by evaluating local market activity and identifying local influences. Lereah's real estate commentary appears regularly in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and other national publications.

Another great tool, Real Estate Brokerage Essentials®: Managing Legal and Business Issues, provides brokers with practical advice for avoiding litigation. And if you're interested in Realtors' economic, demographic, education, tenure, agency relationship, compensation, and more, Realtor Benefits Publications also publishes The 2007 NAR Member Profile.
