I have been scratching my head lately how some name brand agents get their bank owned inventory....does the asset manger really care? or really know?
IN SEARCH OF ....the listing agent
For starters... listing comes on the market...is listed in the MLS....but has no lockbox until 4 days later because the assistant does not work on Sunday. I tried to show this property twice ...no offer from me! This equals lost sales. Should you not do your own work? I work Sundays.....
In a listing recently: This text in the agent commentary in the listing: "If status shows active it is active...do not call for status, do not ask about offers, do not call, email only ( obviously has too many listings with no customer service.)
Or how abou this..." PLS use lckbx on door. Pls txt for all info. Snd offr w FICO,EMD,POF,RPA. Sllr mtvd! ( obviously too busy to slow down and write like a human.
My point is this. Does a certification really make you a good REO agent?
I would think as long as you do a presentable job on 1 listing or 5 listings and act intelligent, I think that would be good enough.
Really, can you think of why it would not benefit an asset manger to have their property marketed with the same vigor as a standard owner occupant?
