Find Your Home!

If you are not going to make an offer, help the sellers anyway!

If you are a buyer looking at property in the Viera and Rockledge area, please have your agent give the seller's agent feedback on your impression of the property.

"Feedback" is rare in the Viera, Rockledge and Suntree real estate market. From what I have read, it is rare regardless of market. What is even more rare is useful, constructive feedback.

I have never worked with a seller who has not enthusiastically anticipated feedback. Often I have to send multiple faxes and make several calls to get feedback. Even with concerted effort success only comes about 25% of the time.

What is the purpose of feedback? Simple, really. Sellers want to know
  • What potential buyers really think about their home.
  • Is the price competitive?
  • Does the property make a good first impression?
  • What does the seller need to do to make the property more appealing?

As a potential buyer you will be doing the sellers a good deed. Of course my sellers would rather hear that you are considering making an offer!
