I'm Crying Foul

Basket Ball Stuff

OK, actually I'm not doing anything but venting. Last week I sold both sides of a town house. A developer built a duplex which sat on the market for a while but not to long. He planned on building several of these duplex homes while our market was really moving with the oil boom. I brought 3 buyers to his agent and I have several more lined up. After I brought those 3 he got it in gear and is building more units. With 2 duplex's up and my selling 3 of the 4 units I got the Buyers permission to put up a row of SOLD signs for a week.

Gee whiz, would you know all my signs mysteriously pulled themselves up the next day and laid themselves in the dirt. Who'd a thunk?

Maybe I should ask the Sellers agent if he saw who could have done this... Dale?

Sounds like the listing agents were trying to minimize your attention to the homes, and get it for themselves

If the buyers had closed on their units, you rightfully had permission to install your sold signs. Oh, well. Just keep selling those units!

That's the plan Pat Starnes and I'm sure the developer has noticed who is selling his units.

 Good morning Bob. That is odd that the signs would mysteriously pull themselves up. Lucky, that they were still there. Sometimes, signs just mysteriously disappear.

Good morning Bob,

Only the listing agent here is allowed to put a sold sign up.

But you have other ways to market yourself as the selling agent.

Make yourself a great day.

Good morning Bob. Too bad but listing agents are sensitive I guess.

There is plenty of business for everyone and I agree that it is ridiculous that someone else would do this to you Bob. I'd have someone keep an eye out and if caught, I'd confront and pursue!
