Dumping on Sellers
Unbeknownst to many Buyers, their Realtor receives a feedback form after each showing (and sometimes, before!).
Equally unbeknownst to Buyers, their agents will occasionally use said form to . . . . rather tactlessly dump all over the Seller’s home.
So, the curb appeal is ” dreadful,” the condition is “atrocious,” the floor plan is “incoherent” — and on and on.
And the asking price?
“Ridiculous!” (of course).
To check some of that agent “candor,” I’m seeing more and more feedback forms come with this caution: ‘Seller will receive feedback directly.’
P.S.: So, is an avalanche of negative feedback ever strategic?
It can be.
At the end of the longest negative feedback I (or any other Realtor) ever received was this tag line: ‘my Buyer’s interested; please keep me in the loop!’
