I can't speak for your market and your agent. What I can do is explain how the process works when I meet and list a property.
* Discuss the comparable homes and pricing and suggest price with seller.
* Explain my marketing plan, open houses, agency (dual or not), future price reduction strategy
* Explain how the offered commission, terms, and type of listing will affect showings and contract
* Explain that appt. only, and will reduce showings
* Discuss anything negative which may affect a buyer's decision, pet odors, cigaret odors, cooking odors, visual objections, neighbors, power polls, noise factors, furniture placement, color choices, lighting, etcâ€¦ And what could be done to mitigate
* Once the listing is signed and the seller understands what their roll is, what my roll is, and how other agents work then we set a weekly follow up call.
* Every two weeks a report is prepared for the seller on showing activity, other properties on the market, off the market, price reductions, interest rate changes, website hits, and feed back from showing agents.
* I call every agent for feed back from buyers and relay that to the seller.
* I call other agents who have listings and get their activity level on their listing.
* I call recent solds in the area and talk with their agent to see if they have any buyer leads they can introduce to the listing.
When you and your agent have effectively communicated there should be no frustration with each other. Your agent doesn't make the market only interpret it. So as the other agents suggested, Google your address, your agent, and then schedule a meeting to get feed back.... more
Congradulations, I know this could be a very exciting moment !! First thing, my opinion is that I am honored to be in this profession. We are in a position to help people make their dreams come alive, I don't understand the rudest of some. But, you should also understand that at certain points of the transaction access is necessary to the property and arrangements should be made through the agents. Please put yourself on the sellers side, everyone builds a personal attachment to the homes, now for some unknown reason they must move they might feel their being invaded over-night. Respect for the stituation needs to be established up front between parties, good times for the buyers to show off their dream and good times for the seller to cry over the move.... more
Deniser, I am not sure I understand your question. According to the Rochester area MLS system, the address you mentioned is not listed. There is only one property on Ontario Street listed for sale in Canandaigua. If this home was for sale, it is possible that it has already been sold or is being sold by owner and is not on the MLS system. Since sale and transfer of property is public record, you would be able to check the county clerk's office to see who the current owner is and if a transfer of ownership has recently taken place. I hope this information is helpful. Best of luck!... more
