Why has the agent stopped showing the house? Is this an equal opportunity country? What gives with this agent?

Sounds to me like Stephen is the buyer? Given the extreme demand in the area, it's possible that the agent had multiple offers in a very short amount of time, making continued showings unnecessary. Don't take it personally.

Hello Steven, if the agent whom you are working with refuses to show you a home, I would recommend speaking with him/her about it. If the listing agent has stopped allowing showings, it may be that the seller has ordered no more showings for a specific reason.

Did the agent stop showing or did interested buyers stop asking to see it? Want to generate interest? Talk to your agent about a possible price reduction. Best of luck...

The seller is usually the one who will make the NO MORE SHOWINGS call, not the agent.

This happens when they already have multi offers and have decided to select from the offers on hand.

More than likely the house was under contract with multiple offers. If it's in a backup status, you could call your agent or the listing agent to see the property. Pending status normally is more solid and the seller is not showing the house anymore.

There seems to be a misunderstanding of what a listing agent's responsibility entails. A home is shown on the merits of the property. People view the property based upon how it is advertised and meets with their individual search criteria before determining if they are interested enough to see the property.

One would only hope this has nothing to do with equality......

The Agent does not go out on the streets, pull a gun, and drag people to your house:
Buyers or their Agents will see a house on the MLS, on the Internet or in the Newspaper, and want to see it; particularly when it is NEW on the Market.
Once that NEWNESS wears off, or, when they realize that it is overprices; the excitement wears off.

It is time to examine the house and the Price.

Good luck and may God bless

It is common for sellers to request no more showings once the property is under contract. Speak with your agent to find out what the status is of the property. It could be under contract or simply has no showings during a certain period of time due to something such as the seller being ill.

Sometimes an agent will stop showing a house because the seller has indicated to make any more showings for whatever reasons. It is more common when the seller has received more than a sufficient number of offers to make a decision on.
