Like most things in real estate asking for feedback after a showing can be handled in many different ways. There are different opinions as to the value of feedback and there isn’t a right or wrong just what a seller prefers.
Investors selling property could care less about feedback, mostly they just want offers as they have no emotional ties to a property, just there to make a dollar.
Long time home owners on the other hand are emotionally tied to their home of many years and it is sometimes hard to be objective as the house worked for them and their family for many years and the thought of changing anything is not always understood.
If you put your home on the market and have lived there for a long time would you want feedback from buyers previewing your home? Do you care what people you don’t know think about your house? Would you care that they don’t like your red walls, blue carpet or that your 1950’s bathroom needs renovation…are these things you don’t know?
If you have lived in your house for a very long time you may not be objective about the property or feel vulnerable to criticism taking the criticism personally.
What can you do? Well you can ask for the feedback or not. If you are selling it is a good idea to try and detach emotionally from the listing and if you ask your agent for feedback look at it objectively and decide if it is legitimate and if you are willing to make any changes. Or you can wait for offers from people who like your property and want to live there rather than trying to change the property and try to make it work for people who do not like your property and have not put in an offer.
