Ensuring Showings are Successful
Private showings and open houses provide opportunities for buyers to view your property and get a sense of what it is like to live there. You will want them to be impressed by what they see and motivated to make an offer. You only have one chance to make a first impression and that is the impression buyers will remember.
It is important to maximize the potential of every showing and open house. To accomplish that, I advise you on how best to prepare your property, I market it to qualified buyers and make sure there isn’t anything to distract the attention of potential buyers as they view your home.
When it comes to scheduling a showing, I coordinate with you to select days and times that are as convenient as possible. Obviously, I encourage you to be as flexible as you can, as that will enable more buyers to see your property. Weekends, in particular, are popular for showings.
Don’t worry about the details. I take care of all aspects of scheduling showings, as well as planning and hosting open houses.
Below are a few things you can do to make showings more successful:
- Make sure your home is neat and clean and smells fresh.
- Remove personal items such as family pictures. This makes it easier for buyers to imagine themselves living in the home.
- Find a place to go, such as a park or shopping mall. Buyers are more comfortable if they can view the property without you there.
- If possible, remove your pets. You can take them for a walk, or to a local pet sitting service or kennel.
I realize showings and open houses can be a little inconvenient. As your real estate agent, I will do my best to minimize the disruptions. Just realize the more showings you have, the more buyers will see your home and the faster your home will sell.
To sell your house quickly, and for the highest price possible, it is crucial that showings and opening houses are done right. Want to learn more about my approach? Please submit the form below or call, text or email me today to get started today.
