I don't know about your client attempting to sell or rent his unit, but I know about mine. If someone is looking to make an appointment to see my client's unit, even in a moment's notice, someone needs to be available to answer the phone, take the appointment, and give the realtor the appropriate showing instructions. When my office Coldwell Banker- Buffalo Grove isn't open- , I hope and encourage other realtors to call me and make an appointment with my assistant or myself. I don't ever want a potential client to pass by my listing just because they can't make and appointment.
Yesterday, I was showing 6 rental units to my client. I made the appointments on all of them. We saw all of them but none of them met my client's requirements. My client then suggested we see one more. He gave me the mls sheet and the according to the instructions, I needed to call the owner of the unit and not the listing agent. I tried calling the owner but no one answered the phone all day. I tried to reach the limited service listing agent, but he said he doesn't make the appointments and I should contact the owner. He also said that he had no additional information on how I could reach the owner.
What I learned from the day!
The client hired a limited service agency to put his home for rent or sale on the mls- but since no one could provide for us instructions to see the unit, the client really was wasting his money.
My client rented another unit since we were not available to see this one unit. How badly does the lessor really want to rent this unit?
