Make home accessible.
Top selling agents will not show your home if both the key and access are not readily available. They do not have time to run around town all day picking up and dropping off keys. They want to sell homes!
The most effective way to show a house is to have a key available. This is typically done by placing it in a secure lock box, provided to you by your Real Estate Professional. This will give agents with prospective buyers easy access to your property, and promote more showings.
Please Follow These Steps For Showings:
• Keep all lights on, even on the sunniest of days • Keep all draperies and shutters open • Keep all interior doors unlocked for easy access • Leave soft music playing at a low level • Take a short walk or drive with your children and pets, let the Realtor and clients view the home without your presence.
• Burn a scented candle to add a pleasant aroma to your home.
• Let the buyer be at ease and let the agents do their job.
