Does It Really Need To Be Said AGAIN!
I have written blogs on this topic before. Yet again, a local agent has gone into one of my listings and it was not during the appointed time. My firm uses an appointment desk simply so that there are no miscommunications. They even send a confirmation email as well as calling to communicate confirmation of the appointment time. I simple paste into my online calendar the appointment never leaving any question to the time or showing instructions.
But, back to the issue. As I warned before I have a number of farms and land tracts as listings. The last time it was someone that just decided to drive onto a farm property with no notice or permission. The owner of that property usually meets unwanted visitors with a firearm. They caught him on a good day. Today an agent went into a home on a farm that the owner has a concealed carry permit and is not usually without their firearm. The owner of the home walked out of the bathroom and into the kitchen to find and agent and some buyers in their home. I am just glad for their sake that they did not frighten her too badly. Just wondering if not scaring a homeowner and putting your clients at risk of getting shot is motivation enough for a buyer’s agent to be more organized and know when their appointments are.
As all my buyer’s will attest every house I go into I will ring the bell or knock and announce myself as I go in the door even if I know the home is vacant. You can never be too careful.
