What are the steps you take when listing a home for sale?
I bet you run comps. I imagine you visit the home and talk about assets and liabilities of the home. I would think you point out the busy street, high wires behind the home and street noise. I suppose you would discuss price. I assume you suggest decluttering, staging.
You walk into the listing appointment and present yourself as a professional. You don't tell the seller "I'm going to take this listing, guess on price, and then wait for feedback to let us know what we should be doing to get it sold." Of course not.
So if you are so insistent on feedback it's one of two thing:
1) you are not confident that you have the credibility with your seller and need feedback to make your point 2) You are really trying to use feedback as an excuse to speak to buyer's agents and see if there is a deal which can be worked out.
I think you should embrace your inner-salesperson and just come out and ask...ask me if there is something we can do to put a deal together? Overcome the objections! Ask for the offer...see if you can get something in writing. That sort of thing!
Feedback is a waste of time.
We all know the same things about your listing, you don't need me to tell you that:
The house smells like wet dog. The backyard is sliding downhill. The freeway out front is noisy. The price is too high. The price is too high. The price is too high.
I think you do yourself a disservice with your cilents if you need ME to tell you what is wrong with the home. Why doesn't your seller contact me? I seem to know things you don't? But that's not it....I really believe it's a soft-sell tactic. Ok...but we are all salespeople here. I would respond so much faster if the voicemail said:
"Hi, I see you showed my listing on 123 Main and I'd like to get this into escrow. Can you give me a call so we can discuss any possibility of that?"
That I might call back....other than that, I do my best when I get the phone call/email. But it's only out of professional courtesy, I think it's a waste of everyone's time.
