Miami or Chicago, it is absolutely inadmissible that an agent in today's market does not have all the necessary tools to stay in business.
Properties that are easy to show get shown more. That's hard to argue with.
When I take out a client the first time, and a first meet, I always line up the vacant homes first. They are EASY to SHOW! Makes it easier to judge the buyers requirements.
When a call is required, if the listing agents does not respond quickly, it OFTEN does not make the show list. That CBS code can be a impediment.
Sorry Christopher, if my buyer is unwilling to compensate to my minimal compensation level, those discounted properties are OUT! Many buyers are unwilling to dig into their pocket to supplement the deficit the seller created. This is a business, not a hobby. You however are free to do what ever you want.
FSBO does not want to compensate above market rate and buyer unwilling to make up the difference, they are off the list also. It's a business, not a hobby.
If your listing is at 1.5%......well, it's a business, not a hobby.
The boxes are great for keeping a log of who comes in the home etc. The one down fall I see is the battery dies and that can prevent a showing, it's happened to me as a buyers agent.
