Useless Real Estate Brokers…

Posted under I'm Over It, Things that Piss me Off by Angry Lioness

Perhaps you know one… it shouldn’t be hard to find one these days. I know several, hell, our real estate broker is about as useless as they come.

Our house has been on the market for a year, with 3 showings, total in that timeframe. The last showing was 3 months ago, and although I would love to be able to share the feedback, the useless bastard couldn’t be bothered to follow up with the broker that showed the house and provide me with any. You know what pisses me off the most? I asked the lazy prick… “You are familiar with the Market, You know what’s out there, what’s for sale, What do YOU Recommend I list the house for?”

I had an appraisal in hand, I also know an appraisal doesn’t mean jack shit. I wanted to know What the broker Felt the house should list for to make it competitive with the other properties in the area. His response, “well, um, that’s up to you”. Well Holy Shit, thanks for that Bright Well Thought Out Articulate Fucking response Jack-o.

I realize the market has turned to shit the last year. When I listed the house I told the lazy son of a bitch that my main concern was Communication. I expect an email at least 2 times a month letting me know what (if any) marketing has been done on the house. Was it in a friggin’ rag somewhere? Did you post it on the internet? Did you tell your cousin fred you just listed it?

But no, in the last 6 months, I have received a total of 3 emails, only after I called and left a message, and only because the listing was expiring. Then, on top of it, the dumb ass lists it in the MLS as a 1 1/2 story house. I’m sorry, but how is a 2 story house WITH an Attic only a 1 and half story house??  Please do explain that to me…

So fuck it, the house is for sale and I couldn’t wait to get the hell out of dodge, so we packed up our shit and left anyway. I shut the power off, shut the water off, dumped a few buckets of antifreeze down the lines and locked the door on my way. And NO, in case your wondering, No, the door did NOT hit me in the ass on the way out. I was in too much of a hurry for that to happen.
