How to Help Agents Show Your Home

v Let the agent sell your home. If you are not there, the prospective buyers can talk openly with the agent, who is well versed in handling objections and calming nerves.

v Children, pets and adults can keep buyers from feeling at ease while they look through a home. For showings, please be out of the house if possible.

v Turn off the television and stereo, even background music can be distracting.

v Turn on all lights for the entire showing. Open drapes in the daytime, close them at night.

v Strong cooking or smoking odors can ruin a sale. Make sure your home is fresh for showings. Create pleasant aromas by opening windows, putting out fresh flowers, or baking bread or cookies shortly before the showing.

v Have a lock box installed and leave your home ready to show whenever possible.

v Use an answering machine or another message system available so messages can be left regarding appointments.

v Make sure that the feature sheets of your home are left in a conspicuous place. If your supply is getting low, let us know and we will drop some more off.

v Remove and replace major items not included in the sale if you feel this is necessary - you don't have to remove small things - e.g.: dining room chandelier or the occasional window covering.

v Often it is difficult for Agents to schedule appointments precisely. Expect Agents one half hour either way of the scheduled appointment time.

v If your sign is vandalized or dislodges, please let us know right away and we will have it corrected.

v Be sure to put valuables away. Although theft problems are extremely rare, you are always better safe than sorry.
