I would speak with your agent about how they are marketing your home. Have you ask for an open house or an agent open? These are idea's to run by your agent. Best of luck

No it's not. Unless it's on paper in your hand, it's not binding.

@Shanna, the bank will not do a BPO because this is a charge off mortgage. The BPO they were using and referencing was from 2009 several $K,s over what it is listed. Even the CMA, per the bank was too low and I had to provide tons of pictures to show condition of the house and they still questioned. I even sent more listings of properties that sold or active in the area that met the critieria. They wanted us to provide an appraisal and/or repair report that no one was going to do without knowing if submitted offer was going to be accepted. I need the house to sell without alot of hassel from the bank. Since the bank only asked "if the offer was accepted how soon could buyer close" wasn't necessarily saying they were going to accept the offer but I will never know cause the buyer backed out. Just wish I could get the bank to say what is acceptable since we have already gone thought several months getting to where we did. Hey was just wondering if anybody ever got an approved price prior to acceptance or counters from a bank on a Short Sale. Thanks. ... more

Bill Eckler answered:
You are right in exercising your option to identify anyone you want to represent your property however, don't feel you are right in punishing the agent for what might likely be a product of a "soft market."

In a market such as the one we are currently in, the importance of pricing a property correctly in the very beginning is absolutely critical. If it is not priced right initially, the seller ends up chasing the market by continually dropping the price. At this point, whoever you select to represent you must aggressively drop the price to where it will receive significant activity and sell.

The second time through make sure you find out more about the agents marketing plan and specifically how they plan to sell your home in a sagging market. Don't accept BS, pin them down and demand a detailed outline. Ask about the following:

1. personal advertising budget amount

2. Website details-there is no substitute for internet presence in todays market

3. What's the company advertising policy

4. Do they do open houses?

5. Ask how many homes they have sold since the beginning of the year

6. How much were their total sales last year

7. Ask for advertising samples

8. Ask for a written copy of their "marketing plan"

9. Why should you list with them?

10. Ask to see letters/notes/cards of recommendation from customers

We hope this is helpful.
