Del Dayo Home Pending Despite Agents With Reading Disabilities

Sometimes, buyer feedback can drive a Sacramento listing agent crazy. Over and over buyer's agents sent feedback saying either home was too big or it had too many levels. Because, this particular home, guess what? Exceeds 5,000 square feet, which was right there in MLS for all to read. And it is a tri-level, also in MLS for all to read.

However, nobody reads MLS listings. Not agents. Not buyers. Maybe they look at the virtual tour, thumb through photos, and note price and property address. Not much else.

Further, low inventory drives agents to throw darts at the board. Nothing to show, so they hop on every new listing, hoping it might fit or buyers might change parameters. Which must be upsetting for buyers to view homes they don't want.

A potential buyer called yesterday about a pending listing in Zillow. I asked her if she could see the words p-e-n-d-i-n-g on the listing? Why yes, she could, but she did not know its meaning. So I took the time to explain it to her and went into detail about how real estate works, and how an agent could help her, and now we are working with her to buy a home.

Just because I realize people don't read and not many who do even comprehend, doesn't mean I should not display compassion to the reading-impaired.
