Selling Your Home in Nutley NJ, What To Ask Agents Before Your Hire Them.

Are you thinking about selling your home in Nutley NJ and you are interviewing Realtors. Here is what to ask.

#1 Are You A Franchise Company or Part of a Larger Firm, Just because the office looks impressive does not mean the agents are.

#2 What is your Marketing Plan for my home? do you have it in print, don’t just give me lip service about who you know in town, sometimes an agents reputation is more important than all the marketing they may do. Ask around about your agent before you sign that listing agreement.

#3 Will you do an open house at least 2-3 times per month? Where do you advertise my Open House? Will you put it online and inthe Newspaper?

#4 Once I sign the Listing agreement are you just going to hand me off to one of your assistants? Some agents use assistants like gophers and just wind up handing your most valuable asset off to an under qualified assistant or other agent and you never hear from that agent again until it’s time to re-list. Insist on a call every week for a status update, usually Monday mornings are the best time to schedule these calls.

#5 Find out how much traffic your home get’s on the weekends (if the property is vacant) also have a lock box installed, does not matter if its a rental or sale, every listing should be treated equal.

#6 Ask about the commission your paying, are they giving and equal share to participating brokers? this can out you at a disadvantage if they are not.

#7 Do you offer a home warranty like Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage does?

#8 What if I want to break my listing agreement with my firm, can I do that?

I hope these 8 questions help you flush out which Real Estate firm you decide to list your home with in Nutley, please contact me if you have any questions.

        The Best Agent in Nutley? How To Find Out If They Are Truly The Best Agent in Town.

        Finding The Best Real Estate Agent in Nutley? Here Are Some Simple Steps To See If Your Really Dealing With A Top Agent?

        1) Meet agents out in their working environment, not in their offices. Good agents spend very little time at their desks.

        2)Make sure the agent has closed many properties and has worked a few years at least. The average real estate agent closes only 1 or 2 houses a year. More closings mean more experience.

        3)A great place to meet agents is at open houses. Don’t worry that you are not interested in that particular property. The agent knows that open houses rarely produce a buyer for that home and use the open house as a tool to find buyers.

        4)Make sure your agent is online. Having a web savvy agent is very important today as over 85% of all buyers initially see their homes online. Great agents have laptops and often have moved to mobile technology to assist. A real estate agent in today’s world must email, text, and be available to buyers and sellers alike. Also must understand Search Engine optimization and not have to many assistants

        5)Look for signs that the agent is busy. A hard-working, go-getter of an agent is good. Be careful, sometimes they are too busy. A real estate agent can only effectively work with about a half-dozen buyers and a dozen sellers at any given time to properly give the time needed to a buyer. If they pass you to an “assistant”, move to another agent that will give their time to you.

        6)See how the agent’s MLS listings come up in searches. When listing in todays market, all listings from small to big should have professional photos – this is the first sign of a professional real estate agent who understands todays market.

        7)Check the references that an agent should be able to provide you. Ask the other real estate agents you interview if they know the other agent and if they respect them as a real estate agent. If they start bad mouting another agent move on.

        8)Ask “Can you recommend service providers who can assist me in obtaining a mortgage, making repairs on my home, and other things I need done?” Keep in mind here that a real estate agent should generally recommend more than one provider and shouldn’t receive any compensation (ethical issues tend to arise when this happens).

        9)Ask Who the agent is working for in the transaction, the buyer or the seller (a real estate agent selling a house almost always works for the seller and tend to spin things a sellers way)

        10)Ask “How will you keep me informed about the progress of my transaction? How frequently?” Using what media? Again, this is not a question with a correct answer, but that one reflects your desires.

        11) Last but not least find out what your agent is doing from Friday to Sunday, if they are not working two of those days I would look for another agent.
