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.
