As a listing agent, I believe it's important to make the property easy to buy. That's because you're trying to sell it. Because I also work with buyers, I've been spending some time on the other side of the transaction lately. Here are some things that I've run across over and over when attempting to bring you a buyer.
1. Incomplete MLS info. The buyer needs as much info about the property as possible. If we don't know anything about it, why would we buy it?
2. Answer your phone. Since you didn't put much info in the MLS, I'll be calling you. If you don't return calls for several days, don't expect my buyer to stick around and wait.
3. Accurate showing and keybox info please! I'm standing in the rain with a buyer and we can't get inside the property because there's no keybox, or the keybox is empty, or the PTS is wrong, and of course, you don't answer your phone.
4. Terrible pictures. I see this over and over and over. There's a "luxury" expert who seems to get a lot of listings in Seattle and she rarely bothers to post many pictures. I'm looking at one of her condo listings now and there's an exterior shot, two photos of a toilet with the seat up and a photo of the building's fitness center. How does she keep getting listings?
5. Attached docs. If there are docs I need, take the time to attach them to the MLS listing.
In short, do your job. Don't make the buyer's agent beg for info that you should have already provided. Make the property easy to show, and easy to sell. This seems like common sense but it's amazing how many sellers and landlords hire agents who seem to be working against them.
