South Carolina Showing Assist ~ Yay or Nay
Technology has updated the Real Estate market with many ways to arrange showings. Convenient, easy, less time consuming ways are available when used properly.
Technology is trying to get away calling the listing office and/or the listing agent and utilizing methods like centralized showing or online scheduling.
Showing Assist allows agents to go online and arrange their showings supposedly with a few simple clicks.
There is a cute little icon on all the South Carolina MLS listings you click on which enables you to arrange your showings online.
The problem is not all agents comply with the showing assist advantages.
Many agents use private lockboxes which are so antiquated (really?)
Many agents still want you to call them or call the listing office (seriously?)
Some agents want to meet you at the house (What?? Are you kidding me??)
To top it off there are agents who ask to be called and then tell you the key is under the front door mat (Ridiculous!!)
Why did the South Carolina MLS even bother setting up the Showing Assist if agents continue to use old methods of showing homes??
What do we think of the Showing Assist in the South Carolina (CCAR (Coastal Carolina Association of Realtors) MLS?
WE SAY NAY (Until Realtors Comply)
