Help solve a problem for me. We can't figure out which real estate broker to use. Which one would you pick?
More experienced with stellar reputation and only lists properties to sell (no longer works as buyer's agent)
She is with Sotheby's, which has offices in New York City (as well as international)
Wants to price our home about $200K less than Realtor B, but she said she'd be willing to list it at $100K less than Realtor B
Charges a 5% commission
Less experienced, but motivated to get our listing
Works a lot as a buyer's agent, so has a good sense for what buyer's are looking for
Works for a boutique firm in our town with no offices in New York City, but does the most transactions in our town
Feels confident in her price since the supply is tight and most homes are going to competitive bidding wars
Charges a 5% commission, but will take 4.5%
So go for lower listing price, higher commission, but better experience?
Or higher listing price, lower commission, but less experience?
