When you list your home for sale with our CA real estate team at REMAX of Valencia, we will be requesting something called “feedback requests”.
This will come as part of our listing strategy in getting your home sold for top dollar in the shortest amount of time possible.
While this is only one small component of what we do, it is quite valuable to our real estate sellers.
Some of the things we want our sellers to know that some agents don’t appreciate the value of providing their and their clients opinion of the home we have listed for sale.
These are some of the reasons why an agent won’t respond to a feedback request :
- It maybe the agent showing the home does not take many real estate listings
- It could be that the agent that showed the home is new
- Or maybe the agent that showed the home works for a team as a buyer’s agent and not a listing agent
- Agent does not care about anyone but themselves
- Agent lacks the inexperience to give any “feedback” that would be valuable to a real estate seller
Agents that of these types are not going to help anyone do anything and are typically shunned by their real estate peers.
As you know, there are a few bad apples in every industry, real estate is no different.
However, we have our ways to get feedback from those who fit the mold presented above.
We reach out via email video, text messaging and by calling directly. Eventually, the shoe will be on the other foot, we will cross paths with them at a local real estate networking event, or elsewhere.
BTW – When I request feedback, I include a front photo the listing in question. This helps immensely.
If they are remotely as busy as I, their memory will be clouded due to the sheer number of homes shown between the time asked about the subject property.
But, at the end of the day, some will respond and some will not.
Those who respond to our requests for feedback, after they had shown our sellers real estate listings, are praised and always reciprocated when my team and I show the listings they have!
Most of the agents give opinions of value related to the home they showed when it comes to giving feedback.
They are also asked what could be done to improve the presentation of the home they viewed.
Current listing price and local neighborhood conditions is also a topic for discussion when I obtain feedback for my real estate sellers.
Finally, I want to know what their clients thought of the property which was viewed. Was there any interest and is there anything that can be done, in the buyer’s mind, to get them motivated enough to submit an offer to us?
