I have a great listing of a condominium on Peachtree Street in Atlanta. It belongs to a dear friend of mine and she is ready to have it SOLD!
Agents call to make appointments to show and I ask only one thing. "Will you please give me a call after showing to share some feedback about your buyer's response to seeing the unit?"
The Seller and I would both like to know why the prospective Buyers are not going forward with contract offers. Do they think the unit is too small for the price? Too large for their taste? Is the view not to their liking? Would they rather have a unit on a higher floor? A lower floor? Is the price an objective? Do they not like the wallpaper? Are they looking for a unit with a larger kitchen or more updated bathrooms or larger windows? Would they like to have the furnishings? What can we do to make this unit acceptable to the Buyer?
I'm not asking for much...just a simple phone call or an email would do, but only ONE agent has bothered to give me the courtesy of granting my request for feedback.
If you asked me to give you feedback, I'd gladly respond graciously. It's professional courtesy and plain old good manners.
