Since the Stupid MLS comments topic is so amusing, I thought that this could be fun too. I'll go first.

Please provide detailed comments directly into the report regarding the age of the comps as this client is extremely sensitive to comparables which are more than 10 years newer than the subject property.

Poor client is so sensitive, I might start crying too.

Oh yeah, the subject was built in 1860.

These instuctions came for an Interior with the homeowner as the contact person.

Do not approach or disturb owner/occupants.

OK, I will break in when they leave.

LOL

To the best of your knowledge, why did it not sell?

That's not stupid - isn't it our job, especially people who deal with expireds, to figure that out? I personally love this question and have probably answered it with 100 different things over the years. And if they don't ask, I tell 'em in the comments.

Unless we call the listing agent, even they might not know why it did not sell, we have no way of knowing the real answer.
Maybe the seller decided not to sell.
Maybe the seller could not find a new house to fit their needs.
Maybe the seller of the house they wanted to buy could not find a new house to buy.
etc, etc, etc.

"Picture of 3rd bedroom is missing, please submit"

Ummmh, it is because the property only has 2 bedrooms.

Ran into this one just last week:

Interior BPO requires 5 interior pics in addition to pics of the master bedroom, bath, living room and kitchen.

Problem: The subject is a 1 bedroom 1 bath, 880 sqft condo. Once the required pics are taken there's nothing left to photograph!

Solution: Go back to the property and take pictures of the same rooms from different angles...

I had that bedroom is missing issue with Landam a couple of years ago. They were so sure it was there they took away the order and said I couldn't do more orders for them. I didn't miss them at all.

Ummm, I don't think so. I submitted an interior BPO on time w/ all rooms photographed. It's your problem your form does not conform to a one bedroom property. I would not go back out there, period!

I like the why did it not sell?

1) I felt that the Muave wall paper clashed with the blush carpet

2) The chalk body outline and the bullet holes around the door

3) The foul stench of death hung upon the property, like the grim mist about a freshly dug grave in a cold dark cemetary

Your comment reminds me of an Interior I did last year. It was supposed to be a simple SFR, and it turned out to be Two (2) Duplexes on One (1) Parcel of land (3 Acres) with a Zoning infraction which also happened to be LakeFront.

I took 73 Photos: including one of each room and each bath and each kitchen, and each side of each of the structures . . . . and eighteen (18) pictures of various items of damage or deferred maintenance (But 18 Subject Pictures and 18 Damage Pictures was all that this particular Platform could hold).

I ran out of space for all the room pictures, and sent them a separate email with the pictures attached as BOTH JPEGs AND as IMAGESs with descriptive labels. The QC at this particular Firm then responded with the request that to make their report look nicer for the Client . . . .Would I please replace all of the the damage photos and exchange them with the additional room pictures because the Client placed more importance on seeing the additional Rooms than on seeing the Damage.

I guess I could not contain myself; because it looks like I responded with "NO . . . . you already snookered me into providing the equivalent of TWO (2) Interiors under the guise of One Order; you have all 73 Photos that I took . . . . all properly labeled. The inadequacies of your BPO Platform are not my problem! YOU should find a way to present the data to your Client that properly reflects the condition and composition of these dwellings . . . . I finished my part! These proceedings are concluded."

Email is good to the extent that it allows you to temper your response and not just react with some kind of spontaneous angry quip (as I might be prone to do on the phone) . . . . plus it's documented.

QC: "Kindly change the proximity of active comp 1 to 3.05 miles and active comp 2 to 4.69 miles."

Me: "Umm... the proximity of active comp 1 is already 3.05 miles and comp 2, 4.69 miles"

No Kidding.
