Thank you guys for your answers. You've been a BIG help
Must ask for marketing plan...thank you SO much.
There are currently 66 townhomes/condos on the market in Palatine with 2 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. Having worked in the Palatine area for years, the agent's marketing has to be consistent especially in this market. When you originally listed with your agent did they give you a marketing plan? If so, were you given some sort of a time line on what marketing would be done and when? I would ask him to give you copies of all of the marketing he has completed and what he is planning on doing over the next month, including the information contained in our MLS. He should also be able to provide information, from our MLS, on how many times your home was emailed, prospective buyers with our reverse prospecting tool and if anyone has marked your home as "interested".
I don't think you are being needy by wanting to know what is being done to market your home. I usually contact my clients atleast once a week to let them know what is happening with their home and in their market area. If something isn't working, there are changes that need to be made in the efforts to sell your home. You need to let your agent know your expectations and all of your concerns.
