What more can a Realtor do?
I've just sold a property in Boston, bought one in FL, and am in the process of selling the one I currently live in on the gulf coast of FL. This area was hit bad by the housing boom, but is starting to show some life. The realtors I've used for selling have had an open house, listed it on MLS sites, but that's the extent of it. They seem to just wait for other realtors to contact them and show it. Is there more they could be doing to facilitate a sale? The realtor we used to purchase was very active in every step of the way, advising us on negotiating and how much to offer, etc. I mentioned this to our realtor asking why there seems to be little interest in even viewing our house, which is in move in condition at a very good price. He just said there's nothing he can do if no one contacts him. Someone mentioned offering him a signing bonus if it sells with a designated time. Would this light a fire under him?
