I was showing property to my first time home buyers and at last some new inventory came on market! I made appointments with all 5 homes. There were 3 out of the 5 homes of interest to my buyers. They wanted more information as they were serious about making an offer on one of them.
I tried calling one listing agent and the voice mailbox was full! I had called the day before to make an appointment when I saw it had just come on market. The seller was surprised she did not know the house was in the MLS yet! Really????
I tried calling the next home on their list and got a recording that the agent would return all calls the next day! Interesting!
I tried calling the third listing agent and got a recording to call their listing manager. I tried that number and did hear back 3 hours later to be told to call the listing agent if I wanted to submit an offer.
Our market is hot….listings come on and are being shown immediately with offers tendered many times right after a showing. To have a voicemail box that is full, not answering your phone until the next day and a run around trying to find out who to talk to is not acceptable!
Sellers deserve their property to be taken seriously by the listing agent who is marketing their home and should be available. Buyers deserve to see a seller’s disclosure (it’s so easy to put online in our MLS system for me to print out) and have questions answered so they are comfortable in making an offer.
Sellers: In choosing your listing agent make sure to ask them if they are going to be available to handle your transaction…...you don’t want to miss out on the right buyer for your home.
