Don’t let a little thing like feedback influence your decision.

As a real estate agent in Brevard County Florida I work hard for my clients. I am grateful for every showing my listings get because you can't sell them if they don't see them!

Sellers are always curious about “what they thought.” It is only natural that when someone comes into your most private place – your home – that you wonder.

You know the “curious” stuff like:

  1. Did it show well?
  2. Is it priced right?
  3. Is it a consideration?
  4. Will they be submitting an offer?
  5. Will they need to see it again?
  6. How does it compare to the competition?
Whenever I get a new listings I always make it a point to advise the seller that it is difficult to obtain useful information (feedback). If you get something benign like "showed well," what does that do for the seller?

Some agents have told me they will not give feedback - especially if the client likes the property. Their reason is that it may hurt their negotiation. Give me a break!

Do us all a favor.... give feedback if you have something to contribute, good or bad. It will be appreciated by the sellers even if you are not buying their house!

And sellers, understand that useful feedback is sometimes a challenge!
