Ensuring Showings are Successful
Private showings and open houses provide opportunities for buyers to view your property and get a sense of what it would be like to live there. Ideally, you will want them to be impressed with what they see – and motivated to make an offer.
As your real estate agent, I will ensure we maximize the potential of every showing and open house. To accomplish that, I will advise you on how best to prepare your property, I will market it to qualified buyers, and then, at showings, draw their attention to the great qualities of your house.
When it comes to scheduling, I coordinate with you to select days and times that are as convenient as possible. Obviously, I would 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 all the details. I will take care of all aspects of scheduling showings as well as planning and hosting open houses.
Although I do most of the work, there are a few things you can do to make showings more successful:
- Make sure your house is neat and clean.
- Remove personal items, such as family pictures. This makes it easier for buyers to imagine themselves living in the house.
- 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.
- Ensure the walkway leading up to your house is clear.
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. I will focus on bringing in serious buyers, rather than those who are just window shopping. This speeds up the process and increases the likelihood of a buyer seeing your property, becoming interested, and making an offer.
To sell your house quickly and for the highest price possible, it’s crucial that showings and open houses are done right. Want to learn more about my approach? Please submit an inquiry form and I’ll contact you.
