The post was getting long, but I wanted to offer these tips:

TOP 3 REASONS WHY YOU'RE LOSING MONEY IF YOU AREN'T GETTING BUYER FEEDBACK
If you ask the right questions, you will know:
1. How your home compares to others. Is the price right? Condition? Curb Appeal?
2. What buyers love or hate about your home. What can you do to maximize how it shows?
3. Are buyers thinking about making an offer. Why or why not?

POTENTIAL QUESTIONS TO ASK

1. How was the curb appeal/outside appearance of the home? [scale of 1-10]
2. How would you rate the condition of the home inside? [scale of 1-10]
3. How would you rate the neighborhood? [scale of 1-10]
4. What are the best features of this home? [Please List]
5. What did the buyers think of the price? [at market, below market, above market value]
6. How did the buyers like the home in comparison to other homes they've seen? [scale of 1-10]
7. Are they considering making an offer? [Y or N]
8. Any other thoughts or input about this home? [Please List]

This is a great post. Homefeedback, is a great product. As a listing agent, e-mailing feedback is a great tool to keep in touch with your clients.

It's so fundamental to give feedback... I try to give feedback on every property I visit. Luckily we have a very nice system here in Houston that most agents use - www.showings.com. There are some new competitors that could be more cost effective but showings.com seems to work pretty good with automating feedback requests & compiling it into reports for the sellers.
