Well here it is Monday and I have not heard back from a Listing Agent I called on Saturday to try to do a 2nd showing on a property we are in negotiation for. Oh yes I called the Listing Agent's office too but they have a constant busy signal, a problem with the line I guess. I also sent a text thinking that might do the trick. But I got nothing more than 24 hours after the message I left requesting that showing. Are you kidding me?
So for all you Listing Agents out there who are busy and can't respond to every call here's my advice, find someone somewhere to back you up and take care of scheduling. You see, buying a house is an epic decision. It is not only a huge financial undertaking it is an emotional mine field of doubt and second guessing. Sometimes a buyer needs to see it again in order to bring the offer up to the number a seller wants to see. If a buyer's agent can't gain access to the house for a 2nd viewing it sometimes cools the desire for the house and can result in lower offers.
Today I will call back again to schedule a weeknight showing but seriously I would have been better off on the weekend. With a purchase like this you must strike while the iron is hot or it may lose it's glow with a few days of cooling.
Hope you all have a great week.
