Generic Answer:  ‘It’s None of Your Business!’

First, a confession:  when I’m swamped — as I am now — promptly turning around listing agents’ “showing feedback forms” is not my highest priority.

Taking care of clients is.

That said, “customized” feedback forms which pose open-ended questions — and lots of them — certainly don’t help matters (the standard format is multiple choice, or ranking a home’s various attributes from 1 – 5).

Questions such as:

“What aspects of this property worked for your Buyer?”

“What aspects of this property did not work for your Buyer?”

“How does this property compare to other, similar properties?”

“What is your Buyer’s timeline for a purchase?”

What, no question about price??

I can certainly understand why listing agents (and their clients) would like all that info.

I just don’t see why it’s my job — in my capacity as a Buyer’s agent — to provide it.
