If you have hired or are thinking of hiring a realtor to sell your home, you are paying them a commission to help you sell your home. If that realtor is not responding to potential buyers, then why should you be paying them? It is widely reported that a majority of real estate agents in Puerto Rico do not respond to inquiries about properties where they are listed as the selling agent. That is pathetic.
Bad realtors like this are a drag on the Puerto Rican economy. They hinder sellers from selling and buyers from buying, wasting the time of both. Time is money. The easier it is to buy a product or service, the more that will be bought. Inversely, the harder it is to buy a product or service, the less that will be bought. This is basic economics.
If you are a realtor, you need to be responding to ALL phone calls and emails you receive. If you are unable or unwilling to do this, you need to give up the listing to someone else who will do a proper job. Your listed properties should have AT LEAST 5 photos and a DETAILED description including
square feet of the buildings
square feet, cuerdas, or acres of the land
number of bedrooms
number of bathrooms
number of parking spaces, the type of parking-whether covered or not, reserved or first come first serve
monthly HOA fees
amenities such as gym, pool, etc if in a condominium complex
any other important information, both good and bad, to help the buyer make a decision
We are going to make a list to publicize the realtors who do not respond. Perhaps this will shame them into doing their jobs properly and/or run the lazy ones out of business. The lazy realtors do not deserve to be in business. Which realtors have you contacted who have not responded?
