The fact that you have tenants until Sept and you live in NY should not stop someone from listing your home. If your tenants are uncooperative, that causes some problems, but as long as you give the proper notice, a tenant normally cannot stop someone from showing the home.
As for commission rates, I recommend not listing it for less than 5%.
As a seller these days, you have to price the property to sell so that it is not sitting on the market.
I would be happy to help in any way I can, so feel free to give me a call at (302) 540-5373.... more
