Ever since last spring, one of my listings was the target of a Sacramento appraiser's Tweets. In the best interests of the seller, I decided not to discuss the listing nor the situation that ensued. Primarily because the seller has been through enough, and I did not want to jeopardize her chances of eventually selling her home.
Which means when all holy hell rained down around me and I wanted to talk about this in public, I did not. I made no further comments to the press.
Besides, it's rarely a good idea to discuss the inner workings of a real estate transaction prior to closing. You don't want anything you have personally done as an agent to detract from selling that home. Discussing anything negative during the sales process is bad business all around.
But, hey, after it closes . . . just stick to the facts, is my motto. The truth is the truth. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Sacramento Appraiser Sends Unprofessional Tweets, Raises Ruckus.
