Hiring a Realtor? Ask Maha!!


Homeowners should interview a few potential REALTORS® before deciding on one to sell their home. Here are some smart questions to ask:

1. How long have you been in the business?

A freshly-licensed REALTOR® can do a wonderful job and will have up-to-date training; those in the business longer bring more practical experience to the table.

2. What is your average list-to-sales-price ratio?

A competent listing REALTOR® should hold a track record for negotiating sales prices that are very close to list prices.

3. How will your marketing plan meet my needs?

Specifically, how will you sell my home? Where and how often do you advertise? Will you show me a sample flyer? How do you market online?

4. Will you provide references?

Ask if any of the references are related to the REALTOR®. Ask if you can call their references with additional questions.

5. What separates you from your competition?

Key phrases to listen for: assertive, available by phone or e-mail, analytical, professional, reliable, and good negotiating skills.

6. May I review documents that I will be asked to sign?

A good REALTOR® makes forms available to you before you are required to sign them. Ask to see agency disclosure, the listing agreement, and seller disclosure.

7. How will you help me find other professionals?

Ask for a written list of referring vendors. Get an explanation if you see the term “affiliated”. It could mean the REALTOR® is getting compensation from vendors.

8. How much do you charge?

You don’t have to ask if the fee is negotiable since all real estate fees are negotiated. It may be a good idea to ask what their commission fee is for your reference.

9. What kind of guarantee do you offer?

If you sign a listing agreement with the REALTOR® and later find that you are unhappy with the arrangement, will the REALTOR® let you cancel the agreement?

10. What haven’t I asked you that I need to know?

Pay close attention to how the REALTOR® answers this question because there is always something you need to know–always.

” Let us Guide You! ” – Maha Habaybeh



House hunting can quickly become a daunting task; trying to stick to your budget while satisfying all of your wants and needs. You may feel restricted by price, especially first-time buyers, and may feel pressured into settling on a home that’s less than perfect. Be choosy! You want to be happy with your home for years to come. So take some time to consider what you should be looking for in your next dream home.

1. Location & Neighborhood

  • Suburbs or CountryGenerally less expensive newer properties. More home for the money. Longer travel times if you work in the city. Further away from the downtown core.
  • UrbanCloser to many job opportunities and within walking distance to entertainment, dining, and schools. More variation in home styles. Often noisier and more expensive, with higher crime rates and less house for the money.
  • Busy StreetOften homes on high-traffic streets are significantly cheaper. They tend to be noisier, busier and less safe for children. A house on a busy street oftentimes has reduced resale value.
  • Cul-de-sac
    The number one choice of buyers with children. Encourages more neighborlyinteraction. Less privacy can be an issue for some.
  • Corner LotOften larger lots with fewer neighbors. Tend to have more visibility and more interior natural light. Corner lots are exposed to more traffic noise and have more property to maintain in the winter months. Also, more susceptible to vehicles jumping the curb.

    2. Type of Home

  • Single FamilyA good appreciation for this property type. Opportunity for gardens, more privacy, and an overall quieter space. More expensive and more maintenance than other home options.
  • Condos, Townhomes, CooperativesLess expensive than comparable single-family homes. Generally newer so fewer repairs, and no yard or exterior maintenance. Usually less privacy and oftentimes expensive

maintenance fees. Noisier due to common walls and/or floors and ceilings. Sometimes no private yard or balcony.

3. Number of Stories

  • Single LevelEasy wheelchair access, minimal stairs and easier to clean. Can be noisier as entertaining areas and bedrooms are on the same floor. Some people feel safety is compromised if bedrooms are located at ground level.
  • Multi-Level
    More living space on the same foundation. More privacy and stair climbing than a singlestory home. Temperature variation can sometimes be an issue in multi-level homes.
  • Split LevelOften less expensive if purchased with an unfinished lower level. Higher ceilings are a good resale feature. Downstairs family room separates noise from upstairs. More square footage of same size lots as single level homes. Less storage space and kitchens tend to be smaller.

    4. Interior Specifications

  • Number of Bedrooms3 or more bedroom homes are the most desirable for resale. 2 bedroom homes appeal mostly to first-time buyers, singles or seniors.
  • Number of Bathrooms
    2.5 bathrooms are most ideal for home buyers (master bath, guest bath, and powder room).1 bath homes are often less expensive and are less desirable when reselling.
  • Square FootageLarger spaces offer more room and cost less per square foot than smaller spaces. Remember, a layout is more important than actual square footage. Sometimes well designed smaller spaces appear larger.
  • Bonus RoomsExtra space for media rooms, art studios, children’s playrooms, gyms, den/study can be a great feature to help you grow with your home.

5. Garages

  • AttachedMore affordable to build and oftentimes offer direct access from the house into the garage.
  • Detached
    Expensive to build. Direct exposure to inclement weather when accessing the garage.6. Additional Considerations

    • School districts
    • Special amenities such as fireplaces, pools or spas
    • The condition of plumbing, electrical, heating & cooling units
    • Available utilities such as satellite
    • Sewer, cesspool or septic connections
    • Fixers. If you’re handy with tools, you could save big if you consider homes that needminor improvements, fresh paint or new carpeting.

How to sell a property? Ask Maha Habaybeh


The fact is most people who try to sell their own home end up using a REALTOR® in the end anyway. Before anybody decides to fly solo through this complex, time-consuming and financially perilous process, they should consider these questions.

Will you really “save” the real estate commission?

When buyers see a home for sale ‘by the owner’, they see a bargain. They imagine the REALTORS® fee going into their pocket, not yours.

Are you familiar with real estate law?

Complicated and ever-changing, real estate law governs nearly every phase of selling your home. One wrong move and an entire deal can fall through, or worse, a lawsuit can ensue.

How many potential buyers will you reach?

Selling a home takes more than just hanging a “For Sale” sign. How will you promote your home? Will you write your own ads? How will you use the Internet, knowing that you’ll have no inside access to the MLS and therefore will not be able to post your home on this service?

Do you have the time?

Promoting a home is a full-time job, and you may already have one. Will you be able to take calls at any time? How about screening the callers to figure out if they’re qualified to buy your home? Not everybody who calls is even suitable to walk through your home, but how do you tell?

Do you know the market well enough to get the most for your home?

Lacking years of experience, the average do-it-yourselfer is merely guessing at their listing price. Often they set the price too low and miss out on thousands of dollars, or they price their home too high and drive away willing buyers.

What about your selling skills?

If the personalities of prospective buyers rub you the wrong way, can you still deal with them effectively? What about your own defensiveness when you hear negative comments about your home? Best to keep it at arm’s length through a REALTOR®.

Do you have the negotiation skills to keep a deal on track?

When an offer comes in, emotions can run high with so much money on the line. This is why direct seller-to-buyer deals often end in disaster. REALTORS® keep it professional and are indispensable when it comes to bargaining with buyers.
