Alan May depends on who the competition is.

I still will hope I get the listing when it does not sell! Not that I want the colleague to fail.

I always follow the direction because there's an investment already spent that I would love to retrieve. I wish them good luck but know the challenges they face and will strive to get back in the game on the next go around if possible.

Depends on the circumstances.  If I see the listing was bought by allowing an exagerated list price I of course I watch closely hoping it does not sell.  Showing my bad side there.  If it does sell it means, not only did I loose the listing I did a poor job in price evlauation as well.  For the most part though I do not wish another bad.  Too much to do rather than focus on negative.  Good question Alan.  Mark

Have not had this situation in a while, but years ago I did watch the listing, and it did sell quickly but for a lower price.

I ask the seller what I could have done better to win the listing (for professional growth).  Other than that, I don't pay it any mind.  If it didn't happen, it wasn't meant to be.

I do not follow it .... I have better things to do with my time even if that means I am reading a book.  If I do not get the listing then I really don't care.  Period.

I do neither.  I ask the seller for honest feedback in hopes of bettering myself for the future.  

We had a stretch last summer where we had 8 relocation listing appointments in 9 days.  We only got 4 of the listings.  It was bittersweet, but we learned a lot about ourselves during that little listing bender.

I don't wish my competitor ill, nor do I wish them luck. But I do follow their progress in selling and get secret delight when I see them having problems selling a home they overpriced to get the listing. I do wish the seller luck and tell them to feel free to call me if the home doesn't sell. (I've had those calls any number of times of the years.)

Good morning Alan. When I was in the business, I would not follow the status, but would always wish the seller the best of luck with the sale, as I was not willing to burn a bridge.

I have seen this one time, and boy! it was a Blessing in disguise Alan May!!  Hated to lose a client, even though we knew how difficult he was . . .  a few weeks later, we heard back from him, and he was complaining about the realtor that he chose!  And, I would never hope that any competitor fails, as I think there is enough work out there, even in slow times, for those of us that continue to work hard.
