For Sale By Owner-New Hartford, NY Concerned
I have had a concern brought to my attention quite a few times since I started my For-Sale-By-Owner Marketing Company. It seems that there are people in our area that feel our local real estate agents only show their buyer clients their company listings. And are also concerned their properties will not be shown if they go the FSBO route to sell their homes.
One couple stated that, "the agent only showed his company listings and did not show them their properties of interest, saying they wouldn't like it." And just found that odd without questioning the agent.
Another gentleman had a listing he wanted to see and the Agent told him, "he couldn't contact the Agent listed on the property." With no buyer agreement signed, this buyer called the agent off his sign to see the property. The said agent was irrate that the previous agent had made no attempt to contact him regarding a showing.
Common practice? I sure hope not.
