A Quick Note About the Listings

avatarthumbnail.jpgSince there were a backlog of questions along these lines, I thought it might be worth revisiting the listings you see on the website.

The listings search here, on my bank owned site and all my sites is fueled via something called IDX. In short, if it’s in the Arizona Regional MLS and the agent has agreed to have the listing populated through the web, you’re seeing it.

Not all of the listings are mine, which means I’m at the mercy of the listing agent for such things as photographs. If it’s my listing, I absolutely guarantee you there’s more than one or two photographs. In some cases I can photograph a property for a client, but only after we’ve signed a buyer broker agreement and I’ve officially been hired as their agent.

I’ve already had situations this year where I’ve photographed and/or taken video of a property for someone who promptly stabbed me in the back and had another agent write the contract. It’s sad to say, but a handshake doesn’t mean much to some folks.

Speaking of such things, if you’re working with an agent that’s cool. I always wonder why you’re not searching their sites for homes (and, by extension, if they don’t have a search on their site I wonder why you’re using them) but I don’t mind you browsing here.

Having said that, if you’ve got specific questions about a property you need to ask your own agent. So please, please, please don’t get offended when I tell you as much. You’ve hired them, use them. I need to focus on my own clients. If they can’t get you the answers you want, then you have a decision to make.

Happy browsing!
