Relocate to Wisconsin : It's a "Show'n Go"So I let the Appraiser into the Property

It's a "Show'n Go"So I let the Appraiser into the Property

  Apparently in  some brokerages  Brokers do no agent training...and further  no  supervision....they  do not  read

listings or  offers and multiply the liability of  the brokerage with Newbies....and others thtat THINK they know  what  to

do....and  do not.   Our MLS listings specifically say that agents  accompany all inspectors for inspections in their  entireity.....which apparently does not mean that they know thermostatthe  inspector left  the  heat off and  did not return it to a  safe Wisconsin

 winter level of heat when the inspection concluded, and there is was no agent in attenance OR she doesn't know the difference between 40 and 60 degree indoor temperatures.

    Every time an agent....OR as your Buyer's representative wish to enter the  property OR be on the premises you must have the peermission of the listing agent.  Whether it is a "go 'n show" or not has nothing you do with "your rights" are a visitor and you have none.You have to ask permission  whether it is thru the listing agent or showing ckeyompany as the agent directs. are a guest of the Seller. 

Just because you were given permission once

to show the property does not mean you hand out the lockbox or tell

whatever contractor the may come and go as they wish.

    Be respectful.....your Mother, your Broker,the listing agent and most importantly, the Seller(s)expect it.

Morning Sally.

So I take it you had a bad experience with another agent who either thinks the rules don't apply to them, or ignored them altogether

I don't do inspections unless an agent is present.

And if I turn up the heat to test it, I put it back to the temperature the thermostat was set to when we arrived!

I hope agents will read this post and learn from it. I always use a Supra lockbox. 

It makes it difficult for others to go there .

Good morning Sally and David.  It is good practice to try to make sure that everything remains the same as it was before the inspection.

Good  morning, Sally K. & David L. Hanson OMG... even the dumbest of agents in my area over the past 40 years can't come close to those inactions.... I'd be wild... just reading it caused a nudge up with my pulse...

Good morning again Sally. You are so right and it is hard to believe that everyone doesn't know this.

Regardless of rules, people should have the common courtesy to leave a place the same as when they entered it.

Sally, I am always amazed at Buyer's agent that have absolutely no respect for homeowners.    I had one last year that brought a dog into the home, and left a pile of poo in one of the bedrooms!

It happens in our market too. the agents sees it is vacant and then it becomes a revolving door for them to access anytime they want to.

This is very good reading for those untrained or inexperienced agents.

Sally and David that is one of the differences between someone who is a professional, and someone who is not.

I've never heard of that happening before Sally. Someone is not paying attention to the rules...
