Realtors: realistically, how often do you no-show?
My condo has been on the market roughly 500 days give or take. It has two shortcomings: it is on the third floor and although there is an elevator, it is essentially a walk-up building. Then there is the condo fee, which is complex and includes all utilities except plug-ins (heat, gas, water, pool fees. incl)--but not all Realtors do their homework on this and even though this is all mentioned in the listing, they will show it without knowing about the elevator or misrepresenting the fees.
The feedback tends to be: Shows: Excellent. Price: on target. Negatives: condo fees too high; stairs; kitchen too small. (Actually the size of the kitchen is an optical illusion that worked too well unfortunately)
Anyway, we seem to get a lot of Realtors who will schedule and then just not show up. Since we have to make sure everything is absolutely pristine, and be out of the apartment, we are finding this tedious. I would say the no show, no explanation, no apology rate is about 25%.
When they do explain, they usually say, oh when we saw what the condo fee was, we just decided not to look.
Shouldn't this be determined Before the showing is scheduled?
Is this becoming more common?
