I want to stress that we have only had one showing in four months. I understand everyone's standpoint as far as appearance and price. Before we listed the house, I did some research on how to sell your house. We bought a storage unit to get rid of any clutter, and I took down all pictures to depersonalize the house. We've done a lot of other things as well that we felt needed to be done. We then contacted our current Realtor. He walked thru the house, said it looked great, and we signed a contract. It took him days to put up a sign, and to get our listing on MLS, even tho he said he'd have the sign up that evening that we signed the contract. We had to call him 3 times before we got the sign in our yard. That was warning sign ONE. He has rarely called us in the past 4 months, and this includes lack of returning our calls. We called him last Friday morning at 9am, and informed him that we will be taking the house off the market. He didn't even know who my husband was at first. He then told my husband that he'd be there to take the sign down that day, it is now Monday at almost 5 o'clock and we still have the sign up and no contact from Realtor. We have contacted the owner/broker of the business, and so far I'm not impressed with him either. Now do you see why I'm irritated with my Realtor? All I'm asking is for a good Realtor who will work with us, and this includes regular basis contact. Is that really too much to ask, or am I expecting too much. Correct me if I'm stepping out of line, because this is my first time selling a house. Maybe I'm misunderstood?
My second point is, with everything we've done to make the house marketable..what good is it when you have no one bringing potential buyers to the house?
Thanks to all who've responded. I'm not trying to come off mean, I guess I just expected more. I still believe that there are good Realtors out there, I just think I've gotten a bad one.
