How to Hire an Agent to Sell Your Home

How to sell your home and how to choose an agent
Choosing a Realtor to Sell Your Home
Unless you have a lot of time and energy, you'll probably want to hire a Realtor to sell your home. A Realtor, by  definition, is a member of the National Association of Realtors. While it's possible to find an agent that isn't a member of this organization, it's probably not a good idea. Realtors are bound by codes of ethics that give you some protection against dishonest practices.  Here is the way to find a good agent:

Picking Candidates:
Look for Realtors who've sold homes in or near your neighborhood in the recent past and those whose successful sales are in the same general price range as your home. Never hire someone from out of the area, no matter how good their qualifications.

Advice for First Time Renters

Brooklyn, NY buildings: apartments for rent and for sale
With so much to consider for first-time renters, it is often enough to make you feel at a loss. However, here is some advice that may not be easily considered when selecting a place to rent:

Stay for visitors
If you have people coming over to stay for a bit, whether you are temporarily housing them due to a loss of their own place or people are visiting for a vacation, consult your contract to see how long they can stay. Some contracts actually have a limit to how long people may dwell at your  residence.

Laundry rooms
Make sure to find out if there are washers and dryers available to use within your apartment building or if there is a laundromat nearby. It is generally preferred to have the laundry rooms within the building because of location  even if you may have competition for getting your laundry done in a timely manner.
