I am going through a very painful selling process and I need some advice from the forumites To get ready to put the house on market, we vacated the property (loss of rental income), spent few weekend painting and fixing the house, and also put a lot of effort on home staging. Once we signed the contract with the agent, the agent went overseas. No one informed us until we found out from his assistant. His assistant looked after all the work for him. However,everything was in mess and it took days for the assistant to reply us for everything. I was expecting my agent would come back on time for the first open inspection and there would be at least two agents in the house handling the inspection and potential buyers. Today was the first open inspection. I didn't see my agent nor his assistant. The house was on the main road with rear access. The unknown agent conducting the inspection came there by himself, he didn't even know there is rear access and didnt know where to park the car as it is on the main road. Therefore, don't even ask him what he knows about the house. I was very upset with the agent. I found it very unprofessional. My question is do I get too involved in the selling process? Should I just look at the end result that how much can I get from the house by the agent? or I should just switch agents and forget the advertisement fee ($2200)?
