The seven showings of our new listing yesterday went well. People generally show up on time and understand the predicament that the demand is overwhelming the supply. We’ve received two offers, and we are way over list price already.
There tends to be some standing around, so I like to engage with agents about how my slow-motion auction process works. They appreciate the transparency, and tells stories about how other agents are handling their showings. I heard a story about one listing agent who demands that agents submit the buyer’s preapproval letter and proof of funds JUST TO BE PUT ON A WAITING LIST TO SHOW, and another where no human interaction was allowed (which is common).
In my case, you deal with me, and I make myself available by phone, text, or email. I want to give every buyer ample opportunity to buy the home – isn’t that what you want in your listing agent?
