【Q】Can you refer me to a good realtor in IN? インディアナ州のいい仲介者の方をご紹介願えますか?

【Q】I am moving from Indiana to Columbus, OH in less than 3 months. If I would like you to refer me to a good realtor in Carmel/Indianapolis area, what do I need to do? Also, can I turn down a referred realtor if I do not like them?
Also, how long in advance should I contact a realtor before listing of my house?


【A】We have an outgoing referral system within a company. If you could let me know your home address and contact information, I can do the rest for you. If you do not think you work well with the realtor who was referred to you, you can turn them down or ask for another one until you meet the one that you are totally happy with.

However, from my experience, realtors who are in this system are selected ones with experience and high customer satisfaction. I have received many thanks in the past, but never received a complaint so far.

As far as timing of contacting a realtor, I would do it right away. If your home is a move-in condition, you might be able to wait until a week to two from listing day. However, you might need some repair work, staging, etc…, then it is never too early to contact a realtor. If you have time, there will be more things that you can do on your own to prepare the house for listing. If your concern is coordinating timing of sale of your current home and purchase of your next home (and/or you cannot have two mortgages at the same time), you can always put a contingency of sale of your home into a contract.

If that is not the concern, then you can simply let potential buyer know that possession/closing of the home is at the time of your move out day. In either case, your listing agent will advise you something similar to this, so that is not something you as a client needs to worry about. Have your realtor handle that for you.
