As a seller, you should be willing to "extract" feedback wherever you can, including contacting the realtors who show your home. It helps you understand what buyers in your area are looking for. The best way to get the feedback you need, is to ask for it upfront when the realtor makes the appointment. Make it is easy for the realtor to give you the feedback. For example, when they make the initial showing appointment you could say "will you please text me some feedback after the showing?". If you don't receive a response after a day or two, text the realtor and ask for feedback. Good luck with selling your home.

A home owner selling for sale by owner should absolutely ask all buyers agents for feedback.  The homeowner is basically acting as the listing agent, and should act as such.  Just be ready for candid remarks, and do not try and defend you home to  the agent.  Take the remarks for what they are, and decide whether to act on them or not.  If you are getting consistent comments (especially of the negative sort) you should consider rectifying the situation.

I think a follow up would definitely be a good thing.  The Realtor should follow up with you, especially if there is some interest from their buyer.  Good luck either way!

Email is going to be a better option than calling them.  Most of us have an email address on our business cards.  Just ask for a card when they show your home.

You are more likely to get candid remarks and less likely to get a sales pitch if you use email.

Yes, If you had a realtor selling your home, they would send a feedback request to the buyer's agent. Some questions you should ask are:
1.  Is the buyer interested in your home? 2.  If not, what factors caused them to come to that decision.. 3.  If they are interested...do they plan on making an offer.
You should get as much feedback from the agent as you can so you can use the feedback to help you determine what areas of your property are causing buyers to not be interested so you can see if any adjustments need to be made to help you sell your home. Also, you can use this feedback to help you determine if you are priced appropriately or not as well. Good luck selling your home!!

You may have noticed you might run into some "Only to hire them" but that's ok you have a memory ;)

You are offering a Commission, someone (An Agent/Agency) is going to make some money..a lot of Agents/Agencies out there do want to make some money.
 I wouldn't think a call for feedback on a showing should seem all that outlandish or surprising
Plus you have a memory so you can remember who you may wish to do business with in the Future if you decide you want more Services or to buy or or...how they respond could tell you a lot one way or the other

Give them a call & see what happens...be great if you let us know ;)
Good Luck

Only to hire them, if their buyer's are interested in your home, they will call you.

Our system, showing desk, creates the appointment to show a property, once shown the system sends an automated system of feedback with regard to the showing. No need to call or hunt down an agent, it is part of the process. Not all agents have such a system, but you are the listing agent in this case, so you need, as suggested, to have a list of questions and understand the feedback.

It may be hard to hear some of the answers, without a Realtor, you have no insight to strangers who are agents. A Realtor will know the other agents based on cross sales and having others in the office work with the Realtor, so you are at a slight disadvantage, but plow through the issues and see if you can get the house sold.

Best of luck to you,
Liz

Yes!!! Definitely. Have  a list of questions for the buyers agent as far as the feedback from the buyer as well as the agent. You want to know both views. If the buyer was interested and you are willing, make a reverse offer. This is something I practice in the slow seasons with my listings. This helps to get the buyers off the fence. You will be surprised!  Happy selling!

I would definately contact them and get as much feedback as you can. Buyers can provide you with insight and things that we as owners often disregard because it is our home. Just try not to take some of the responses to heart. We all have different tastes.. Best of Luck..

Absolutely, contact the agent within the next day to get feedback. Use the feedback productively to assist you with your ongoing marketing. Ask questions about what they liked and didn't like about the house. Don't get defensive if there is something negative as this might turn them away. Buyers are already suspicious of FSBO because you are going the alternative route. Many times they think you are saving by not using a Realtor so they are going to expect a bargain.

You are responsible for the role of the listing agent. I would contact them to get feedback. What they liked, didn't like, what needed improvement, if it was priced appropriately, and so on. This will give you feedback that may be the difference between selling and not. Don't pester them or else they won't bring anyone else by, be respectful. Good luck!
