Frequently Asked Questions
  • When should I hire a real estate agent in New York?

    It all depends on the current state of the New York real estate market, but we recommend speaking to a real estate agent as soon as you’re thinking of buying or selling a home in the area, which may be anywhere from three to nine months before you want to move.

  • What questions should I ask when interviewing New York real estate agents?

    It’s important to understand a potential real estate agent’s experience and expertise. Some essential questions to ask when interviewing real estate agents are:

    - How many homes have you sold/closed in the last 6 months?
    - Can you provide me with referrals?
    - What is your marketing and/or negotiation strategy?
    - Do you work with a team?
    - How many days, on average, do your listings take to sell?

    Any real estate agent that can’t answer one of these questions should raise a red flag.

  • Do the recommended real estate agents work for U.S. News?

    No. The New York real estate agents in this list were selected based on objective performance data and are not affiliated with U.S. News.
