Making an Appointment

Today one  my former clients had some free time and wanted to see a house. So I pulled the listing up in MLS and read this 

showing restrictions

I clicked the link, put the requested time of 12 noon and within seconds

received the following

text confirmation. 

10:46AM

confirmed appointment 

I called the buyer and told her we were meeting at 11:30 and off I went.

 

Then there was another text. It came in at 10:47 AM (only a minute later).

It read:


CANCELED

BY : Owner. No showings on

this day

Mon, 10/24 12:00PM-12:15

 

It was easy to make the appointment.

It was easy to receive the cancellation.

But in the end...we did not see that property.

Sometimes it is as if we are imposing; when we request a showing. Thank you for the phone call and taking time to talk with me so late at night Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland

So glad we finally connected. The timing was perfect and I enjoyed the conversation... talking about my radio caller.

That is why sales is a numbers game. Next one

A numbers game to some. But trying to get a home sold for your client is what's important.

Well that was certainly time well spent. Sounds like someone is not very motivated or cooperative. Why not just say WHEN showings are allowed?

Ummm...There must be an issue in one of the attics with this listing? Then again, perhaps the listing agent is new in this business and doesn't know how to control her seller.
