The calls seem to go in waves. Some months I receive more of them than others. I'm not sure of the criteria used by flippers and investors who seek out listing agents, but they could be concentrating on the top producers and maybe that's why I get so many contacts.
They act like I should be thrilled to receive a call from a potential buyer -- when I work with sellers and, as such, I keep my sellers' best interests at the forefront of my business model. They also come across as though I should be as pleased as punch to work with them, like they are unique or different when they are just another guy trying to lowball . . ..
You can read more about them and see my new listing in my personal blog today at this link: Fixer in Sacramento Listing Hitting the Market Today.
