5 Biggest Real Estate Agent Complaints
Do consumers sit home and plan to find a REALTOR who will drive them all over the city looking for a house or condo to purchase? If they really like the REALTOR, they will let him or her do it for weeks on end!
Do consumers learn their negotiating tips from real estate reality shows and then go out and offer 50% of asking price in a seller’s market?
Does a home owner sit around at night and diligently try to find a REALTOR who will list their house for 10-15% over market value and maybe allow him or her to show it only when convenient to them?
Does the home owner feel that now that the house is listed they will not have to repair the things that are wrong with the house that they did not declare?
Do home owners interview 3 or 4 REALTOR’s to get a price on their home, pick the one with the lowest commission and highest price, then bad mouth the industry because their home did not sell?
Whenever I have had a challenge with a buyer or a seller, I find if I take a look in the mirror, I can identify the problem. I would say that 90% of any challenges I ever had with a buyer or seller was that I broke one of my rules in taking on that buyer or seller!
The above 5 rants were from REALTOR’s in 2011 who either asked for advice or were ranting. Their names are protected to protect the guilty.
