Speedy Reply From AgentsHow important is a speedy reply from real estate agents?
Will it cost you a buyer for your home?
|It might. That is why it is so important to know whether or not your realtor is “connected” everyday in taking care of your business.
Part of my job is calling agents. Actually it’s a big part of my job when I am working with buyers. There are three ways I can contact them: by email, office phone or on some cases, their cell phone. I am always surprised at how long it takes some agents to get back, if they get back to me at all.The other day I was booking 15 homes for viewing for buyers visiting from out of town. I contacted them all by email first. I was amazed that only 10 answered me and one of the emails actually bounced! Some of the realtors out of that ten took over 2 days to respond. Is this the type of action you want for your house that you want to sell? I hope not!
What can you do?
You want to work with an agent that is on top of contacting you or a potential buyer back ASAP. It could be the difference between a thriving or dying business.
