Del Dayo Home Pending Despite Agents With Reading Disabilities

By
Real Estate Agent with Lyon Real Estate BRE #00697006

Sometimes, buyer feedback can drive a Sacramento listing agent crazy. Over and over buyer's agents sent feedback saying either home was too big or it had too many levels. Because, this particular home, guess what? Exceeds 5,000 square feet, which was right there in MLS for all to read. And it is a tri-level, also in MLS for all to read.

However, nobody reads MLS listings. Not agents. Not buyers. Maybe they look at the virtual tour, thumb through photos, and note price and property address. Not much else.

Further, low inventory drives agents to throw darts at the board. Nothing to show, so they hop on every new listing, hoping it might fit or buyers might change parameters. Which must be upsetting for buyers to view homes they don't want.

A potential buyer called yesterday about a pending listing in Zillow. I asked her if she could see the words p-e-n-d-i-n-g on the listing? Why yes, she could, but she did not know its meaning. So I took the time to explain it to her and went into detail about how real estate works, and how an agent could help her, and now we are working with her to buy a home.

Just because I realize people don't read and not many who do even comprehend, doesn't mean I should not display compassion to the reading-impaired.

Congratulations. I recently had a listing agent scold me - she was upset that the property her buyers wanted wasn't finished. Clearly, in the photos and in the listing copy, we make it clear that one of the homes in unfinished. Hence the reduced price. What the ?  I think this tri-levl offers wonderful main-level living with the option to host plenty of guests - or use, as you mention, as a multigen down, with room for visiting kids and grandkids upstairs. It sounds wonderful. Good job - again. D

What a gorgeous home.  No wonder there is an internet buyer wanting to see and disregarding the word "pending."

Good morning, Elizabeth... and here I thought it was just me! I put everything I have into mls... my homes get shown and I get feedback that leaves me scratching my head as to if the agent read the description, looked at the floor plan, etc. before showing. Don't you love it when they say they need a master on the main floor when it's totally clear in mls the master is on the second floor?

Nina Hollander Yes, you're left wondering whether they noticed the master suite or if they have mixed up your listing with another? It is very hard for some agents to remember any of the specifics of the homes they have shown. While they should be focused on all homes (for general information purposes), they generally zero in on only the home their buyer showed an interest in.

Still, an agent who cared whether she looked like a fool would verify that master before pressing send.

HI Elizabeth... I've had agents show listings of mine on an acre with 4,000 square feet and a master up and then send feedback saying their client is downsizing and it's too much house and land for them! It really makes you wonder.

Nina Hollander That's because you assume the agent has already asked the buyer what kind of home she would like to buy, discussed the buyer's wants and needs and then previewed the homes she had planned to show.

You mean that's not the "normal" way to do it, Elizabeth?  In NYC we used to call it a throw-up... throw enough stuff up at a wall and something might just stick!
