Every Property is different, every location is different when it comes to activities at the property. And then it also really depends on the Sellers, their time available, how anxious they are, and how much activity there is.... I report back to them on all open houses, how many agents showed up and their feedback as well as on Sunday open houses.I provide them with monthly market updates, so that they know what is going on in their surroundings and also nearby areas...
They of course know about all showings as I do call them to let them know about them beforehand, and then
if I get feedback I pass that on to them...
Otherwise whether there is anything important to report or not, I try to be in touch, if not on the phone, at least via e-mail once a week, sometimes in preparation of new open houses, sometimes in preparation of price reductions, and sometimes just to say high....
Personally I try not to call unless important, like showings, appointments, negotiations etc., but otherwise it seems to work for me well with MY clients to keep in touch with them via e-mail, as then they can read them when they have time and feel like it, less intrusive!
Good Luck to you.... By the way, you can discuss this with your Agent, just ask him or her, to contact you more often, even if there is nothing exciting to report, just to stay connected and informed.
But I have had clients especially Sellers who wanted to just hear from me when I had good news... So!
Buyers, I provide them daily with all new listings, and I send them some hand picked listings to have them pay attention to particular properties, I answer all their questions promptly and stay in touch with them consistently with other updates about the market and the buying process.
