Yesterday, I took a customer to see a home listed by another broker here in town. The home is vacant and we used the lock box to get in.
While at the property, I called the listing office to ask a question off the disclosure, as we did not have a copy of the form before the showing. Our customer wanted to know if pets had ever occupied the home and if the home had been listed before.
The customer liked the property and made plans to go back for a second showing on Saturday.
Today, I receive an email from the listing office requesting I fill out a quick six question feedback form.
Question One: Did your buyers like the property?
Okay, so far so good, I think, yes they did.
Question Two: What did you think of the price?
Above market value
At market value
Okay, Houston, we now have a problem.
I scanned the other four questions, including "Are they considering a second showing?"
In our offices, we primarily work as transaction brokers, the default relationship in the state of Missouri. (We sell a large percentage of our own listings and I do not support dual agency. That is a whole new post!)
Perhaps that has nothing to do with anything, or perhaps it explains something - either way, I was taken back by this feedback form.
How many agents go ahead and answer the question regarding price? If your customer or client is even remotely interested, I do not think this is an appropriate question to answer. (Now, if you're a sub-agent of the Seller, I guess you could argue it's okay to answer this question...)
I can only guess that Agents send out these forms because showing agents send them back.
Do you send out feedback forms? Do you respond to feedback forms?
