Should I use the local realtor in my neighborhood?
You want to use the Realtor that you believe can sell your house! Real estate is not just a local business anymore. Real estate is regional. You want the Realtor that will work hard and make you and your situation are a priority. You want the Realtor that will treat the sale of your house, the way they would treat the sale of THEIR own house. You want to make sure your home is properly marketed. You absolutely want to make sure that they will do a fantastic job of negotiating on your behalf. Follow your instincts and you should end up with a happy, successful closing in a few months.
