What happens after my house goes on the market?

Real Estate Agent with F.C. Tucker Company sp39400951

When you list your home for sale with The Castetter Group, here is what you can expect. "Great Communication!"

 ·   Your property will submitted in the BLC (Broker Listing Cooperative). This means that information about your home will be immediately available to every real estate agent in the Indianapolis & Hendricks County areas subscribing to our BLC system. If an agent is actively searching for a listing with the special features that your home provides, it is conceivable that your property will be shown within a few days or possibly the first day. However, sometimes the market moves slower, so don’t be alarmed if we don’t get a showing immediately.


·   Please understand that sometimes agents cannot be at your property at the time they have stated.  Sometimes their customer is late, or they stay longer at one house, throwing the agent’s schedule off. If you are experiencing a large number of “no shows,” please let me know so I can try to solve the problem. It is important to remember most agents show more than one house to buyers. If you ask the agent to reschedule you may lose the showing as the buyer may be from out of town or unable to come back. Also, more buyers feel more comfortable when the owners are not at home so they can talk directly to their agent.


·   It is a professional courtesy for agents that have shown your home to provide feedback from their buyers. My team and I will call and email the agent that has shown your home after the showing.  If showings occur late Friday, Saturday or Sunday, I will call the following Monday for feedback (unless an offer is received, then I will be notified and call you right away). We will make every effort to get feedback to you, however, not all agents will respond promptly and some won’t respond at all unfortunately. 


    We have a great system in place to automatically email the buyer’s agent up to three times requesting feedback. We will also call twice if they do not respond to our email request. If they have not responded after these attempts, we will call it a lost cause and assume there is no interest. The feedback you receive is a true accounting of what the agent tells us.  


    This does not necessarily reflect our opinion, but many times does reflect the market’s opinion. Please do not take offense at any negative comments as the reaction to these comments may bring you a quicker sale.


·   How often will I personally show your home? Many homeowners use this as a barometer to judge whether an agent is doing a good job. Most of my buyers come from three sources:  the sign, internet advertising and referrals. Buyers that call from the sign and from the ads are often not in the price range, or the home is not in the right location which would prevent me from showing your home. However, be assured that if the prospect fits, I will be showing


your home. The Tucker Company has approximately 1,500 agents in Indiana and we do sell a high percentage of our own listings. I may not be the agent that sells your home, but I will be the reason it sells!
