SELLERS: Is your AGENT making it difficult to show your property?
I tried to set up a showing this morning. Rather than using a showing service, the listing agent has his number as the contact point for scheduling appointments. He did answer when I called, but we got, um, disconnected (he hung up on me?). Giving him the benefit of the doubt, I hit redial. It rang and rang and rang, then the call went to voice mail. He has not called back.
If you want your house SOLD, make it easy on the buyer agents who want to show your property. Most agents here in the North Texas area use Centralized Showing Service (CSS). Buyer agents can either call in to CSS to schedule appointments, or can set them up through the CSS website. You, the seller (through your agent), can control whether you'd like a courtesy call to let you know someone is coming, or you can confirm or reject appointments.
Sometimes you, the seller, make it challenging for us to show your house. But it is unacceptable when your listing agent makes it impossible to do so.
