First of all today has been a great day.
Fellow agents I was called three times yesterday from the same agent wanting to preview one of my listings today between the hours of 4PM - 5PM. I agreed and contacted my seller who is a stay at home mom with two small children, 2 and 7 months. The agent also stated they would give me a call to confirm whether or not they would be able to preview the home. The agent seemed very positive about her clients interest in the home and possibly making an offer. At 5:56 PM today I receive a call from the seller telling me the agent never showed up. I am fully aware that listed properties should be available for previewing at certain times. In the listing the showing instructions state to contact listing agent before showing. I was just wondering if this small statement should be included or not because when I am previewing homes I look at the showing instructions to be courteous to sellers and agents, especially if showing instructions say to call agent before showing. Should agents be considerate of this or just show the home? I am one for trying to be 100% courteous. Please give me feedback. Greatly appreciated.
