Your listing agent's job is to find a buyer through any source, her sphere, and any cooperative buyer agent who may have had a client. Can you ask her how many inquiry calls your property receives? How does that compare to other properties that are similar? If your agent is not showing, perhpas the inquries are down.
You can ask your agent to run an updated CMA and compare how your property is perfoming in comparison to competitive properties. If you are moving w/ the tide of the market, the results may not be a negative reflection on your agent.
Buyers often want to be polite. And, sometimes they really do love the house, but find it does not meet their needs.
Sit down w/ your agent and candidly let her know your expectations. Ask her to provide to you and explain to you data that allows you to understand the market. How much time is needed? Again, ask your agent to provide you information on how other homes are performing on the market.
I have no way of telling you specifically if your agent is doing well and working hard. I also do not know Auburn. I have tried to provide you some basis for conversation w/ your agent that may be helpful for you to consider so that you can confidently arrive at the right decision for you.
Good luck and keep us posted.
If you email me privately, I will look up some information about your neighborhood. It will take about 15 minutes. No obligation.
Actually speaking with a showing agent live and trying to get feedback is a tough one. You see, many agents work between the hours of 8 AM and 8 or 9 PM. (That is not to say that they are working 13 hour days.) This is simply to illustrate that it is tough to know every agents schedule or when it is best to reach them for feedback. In addition, some agents really do show 5-15 properties at a time and it is hard to devote an hour or more to call every listing agent back to let them know that the buyer is interested or not. (I can tell you that as far as feeback goes, no buyer feels responsible to let a seller know exactly why the will or may not buy their home. In part because a buyer may have decided to keep looking.) Buyers don't always look at homes and say... "Yes, I want to buy this one or No, this is not the one." Many want to see 20-30 or 40 homes before even thinking about making a decision.
The loudest feedback a seller can receive is an offer or NO offer. AND a an abundance of activity or no activity. The lack of activity is your feedback to add more amenities, square footage, or lower the price. Buyers are only looking at homes that on paper (Their printouts) are obviously priced fairly. Once they view a few homes, they will determin if they want to go back to any for a second look at any of the ones that they have already seen. Sometimes a buyer needs to see more in order to really get the picture that your home is a true value. Once they look at other homes... if they don't come back, they may have found a better value somewhere else. It's best to price your home approx 2% below your competition to get a good amount of traffic.
Please remember that the feedback inquiry is not what sells the house. If one of those who walked through the house wanted to make an offer, he/she would have done so whether the agent showing the property gave feedback or not. I know this is frustrating because you don't know why people chose not to make an offer and it leaves you feeling helpless as you don't know what you could change to make a difference. Good luckl.
