Hello Ms. Lawson,

Please look over your listing agreement for the protection period. My interpretation of that clause (though I am not an attorney) is that you may not sell the property to anyone who viewed the property during the time while it was listed. You wrote here that this buyer saw the property before it was ever listed. If there is any documented proof of that, you may be OK. Of course, it would be wise to consult a real estate attorney for a legal opinion. But it sounds like you may be OK.

Should you decide to list after all, I'd welcome the opportunity to speak with you.

Hope that helps.

Either you're not in the MLS, your in it but with incorrect information, you're priced incorrectly or the marketing is insufficient. Is the agent trying to double side the deal by bringing the buyer too? Did you agree to allow them to do dual agency? Have you googled your listing to see how and where it's showing up?

There are lots of possible reasons. I recommend you ask these questions and do some research. Then, discuss it with your agent either get satisfactory answers or hire someone who will do the right job - like me!

Pricing your correctly will bring in not only more buyers but the right buyers. There are lots of "tricks" such as allowances, bonuses, etc but ultimately, if you're not price correctly, you're going to wait longer and sell for less. I have the market stats to prove this.

Let me know if you'd like to discuss a marketing plan and pricing that will get you sold.

Rohan, I hope you were successful in getting it priced right so it sold in time to not lose out on that other home you wanted. Matthew was spot on on this one.

Terence Richardson answered:
Based on all the great answers here I am sure you have received the insight you were looking for. My personal thoughts on the matter are that it depends. When I list a home, I am marketing it to create as many opportunities as possible that go beyond simply listing it in the multiple listing service (MLS). The MLS will yield showings from other agents working with buyers. Outside of the MLS, listing syndication to websites such as Trulia, Zillow, and many others, as well as your listing agent's marketing methods will create additional opportunities for the listing agent to show the property or have someone on their team show it.

The bigger question would be, if your home is priced right, shows well and sells at a price that is acceptable to you as a seller, does it really matter how many times your listing agent showed it? The end result and the expectations set towards achieving that result are what really matter in the end. I think that we, as agents in this industry, need to set better expectations with our clients overall.

Have a great weekend!

Hopefully you have found the solution to your answer by now. If not, we need more information to provide you with a more accurate assessment. Either way, I hope you would have received that guidance from your agent and have sold by now! Have a great weekend. ... more

I just posted to your other question and see that you do have a realtor....David is dead on. Red, you don't have full faith and confidence in that agent or you would be working these issues out with them. Post the address/MLS so we can see what it looks like, I bet it's overpriced and/or under marketed.
