Some agent s now send these emails from their showing desk type program.. these are o.k.. but usually delete them myself. I wait for the agent to call me. I never like to put feedback in writing, as your agent could use this against me at some point.. with a " Well, John Sacktig said.. your house is only worth this and he is a big time agent:... blah, blah blah.. and it now sours me with that seller.
Have your agent call the showing agent that day, if they do not do so, ask why!
We've tried a variety of techniques to get feedback and sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. I believe among long time professionals in the business, providing feedback is common courtesy. However, some agents were never trained in the details and niceties of the business and simply don't have a clue. This is one of the reasons I keep pushing our State to up the licensing requirements from 91 hours of classroom training to 500 hours with a mentor program.
Your listing agent should be in contact with all buyer agents who tour your home. Unfortunately some buyer agents are difficult to "pin down" to get information from. We do use a special "lock box" that allows them to put in feedback online, that might be a solution.
I agree that it is helpful to know how the buyers view your property. Sometimes a slight adjustment makes the difference between a home that is sold quickly, and one that stays on the market too long.
I have automatic feedback program in place whenever an agent uses the supra box to show the property. However, many selling agents do the give the feedbacks for many reasons: 1. Lazy 2. Buyer is not sure what they want yet...too early in the home searching processes 3. Busy 4. Don't like the listing agent 5. Don't like the seller. These are the most common feedbacks I've heard from other agents in my office. Hope this helps you.
In a seller's market the agent may call the listing agent and alert the agent that an offer is coming in so that the buyer will have opportunity to make an offer.
Your property is not only home the buyer is looking at can you imagine trying to give feedback on 40 or more homes per week.
I am on property 200 times a month.

In this area most agents will receive feedback through the showing service that you might be using. Agents in my office use e-showings and they send at least 3 emails to the showing agent for feedback. If you have not received any feedback yet from any clients, there might be a problem in the system that your agent is following. I live near your home and am familiar with the area, if you have any further questions feel free to shoot me an email.
Honestly, if my client (the buyer) is not interested in the property - we move on.
There's no need to contact the listing agent if we're not interested.
As a Listing Agent, and am aware of what agent came through my listing with buyer's, I gather the business cards and contact the buyer's agent to get feedback. Usually my seller will let me know if there are cards left on the counter.
I feel it's my job to do this. The buyer's agents are usually very honest & give me feedback on what their thoughts are. Was the property listed to high? They were in other homes with more upgrades & amentities. Location? etc., etc. I can turn some of their feedback into a more positive experience for the next buyer.
If I receive positive info., I pass it along to my seller. If it's "constructive" negatives, like the house needed to be cleaned up, etc. I will pass that along too. Nothing ever offensive.
Best of luck with the sale of your home!
