You've listed your house, you and your agent have come up with a good price based upon the comps for your area its "live" in the MLS and now you are waiting for the calls to come in.
You're still waiting...you've now been told, " you hear the news, it is a soft market right now, were just going into the holidays and homes sales tend to slow down around then, maybe we need to reduce the price.
Four months or 120+ very long days into the listing period and low and behold you get an offer on your home! The agent and their client have been looking since November and the "agent" didn't find the home, their client did while roaming through the internet. You see the agent was using the MLS and plugging in the features that the buyer wanted.
The home meets the criteria, the agent confused as to why they missed it before, reads the MLS data closely to figure out what happened.
This lovely "2 car garage" home with "Air-conditioning" in immaculate condition, couldn't be found easily because it was marketed as a "1 car garage" and no mention of the air-conditioning!
It is very prudent to review the MLS data for your listings, bottomline is that "You" are the responsible party. Not okay to say that "someone in the office" made a mistake. I also have my sellers review it, just to be certain that nothing important was left out. If this was not becoming a real issue, I would keep quiet, understanding that mistakes do happen, but I'm finding this happening more and more.
I'm trying to sell the homes listed as active out there, but I need to be able to find them. For that I need your help.
