Questions to Ask When Interviewing Potential Realtors

Asking the Right Questions When Interviewing Potental Realtors

With limited inventory available on the market you should take special care when interviewing Realtors you want to work with whether you are selling or buying a home. Here's a few questions to ask those potential agents.

1. What’s your experience with selling property?

There’s no right or wrong answer requiring a full resume, however, you may wish to know if the Realtor sells real estate full-time or part-time and how long they’ve been in the industry.  It’s also reasonable to ask how they resolve issues such as discovering a lien after the fact, disputes with property lines, negative property inspection prior to closing etc.

Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday is a day of giving celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.  Entering its 6th year, this global movement is fueled by the power of social media. Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.  There’s certainly no shortage of causes to give to; hurricanes, floods and wildfires, just to name a few. But there are also many organizations right in our own communities in need of financial and volunteer support.  Giving Tuesday is a great time to consider giving back locally. Northern New Hampshire is blessed with a diverse group of organizations aimed at a variety of social causes such as housing, medical care, fuel assistance, child care and providing food. In NH, Granite United Way has developed a website to search specific services in different areas of the state, 211nh.org.
