The short answer is - As often as is needed.
During the initial stages and until contingencies have been satisfied, it can often be daily - after all contingencies are met, it may be less frequent, or at minimum 2x a week until settlement.

No less than once a week. If I don't keep them up to date on what I'm doing, it is easy, from their point of view, to believe I'm just twittling my thumbs.

However, market influences mean interaction with seller results in many contacts throughout the week.

Yes it is important to communicate with your seller as you are probably selling the biggest investment they have. I speak to them after each showing with feedback or if there are a bunch then after I have all the feedback. Otherwise I touch base as needed.

We text seller every time there's a showing - just as an FYI. Since we have agents call us prior to showings, we request that after each viewing that showing agt give their or their buyers feedback and we then forward to the sellers. 

We believe in total transparency and feedback helps give sellers a true view of what the marketplace thinks about their property and/or price.

We know many agents may think wow on every showing but it really only takes secs and builds a lot of trust and credibility with our clients :)

Paul, I always ask the seller who often and through what method they want to receive calls from me. If something happens in the course of the listing that's important, we update right away. Otherwise, it's accordning to the seller's wishes.
