PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM AGENTS LIKE THIS GUY.... Yes, this an actual blog, posted by an actual real estate agent (at least he claims to be)...Enjoy, and please take time to read the comments... I know, I couldn't believe it either...
PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS NOT MY BLOG, AND IT IS NOT HOW I CHOOSE TO RUN MY BUSINESS! IT IS A RE-POST OF ANOTHER BLOG I JUST READ TODAY!
What does a potential buyer's agent REALLY need to know about a property I have listed for sale?
Let me clear again, what I mean by "property" in this case is a standard residential suburban property.
I am not talking about a shopping center, or a 10,000 acre ranch, or an abandoned amusement park, or a movie star mansion, or a house made out a missile silo or anything like that.
Also, I have to say that I am talking about my part of California.
Real estate law or Local Brotherhood Of Real Estate Agent's Bylaws and MLS regulations may vary by state.
In my opinion, this is what a potential buyer's agent needs to know:
ITEM 1. How To Show The Property (Days and Times Available/Lock Boxes And Location/Occupancy Status/Special Instructions: Pets?/How To Make An Appointment, Etc.)
ITEM 2. How To Write An Offer On The Property (Where To Send The Offer/What That Offer Must Include/What Happens To Offers After Delivery, Etc.)
ITEM 3. The Status Of A Property (How Many Offers/Status of Offers/Short Sale Negotiation Status, Etc.)
ITEM 4. Information About The Property Gained From RELIABLE Sources (Mandatory Seller's Disclosures/Inspection Reports/Agent Reports, Etc.)
***If any agent out there can add to my list of things that a potential buyer's agent REALLY needs to know, please post a comment below.****
And I don't mean what they could possibly ask, or might be curious about, or might want to know.
I mean, if you were representing a seller's best interests, what would information would you advise the seller to provide?
That and no more.
Thank you very much for your time,
