When one of our agents and prospective buyer arrive to inspect your home, here are a few points to remember:
Greet them courteously then disappear. If you can, leave the house. Don’t tag along. Your presence will inhibit free discussion, making it difficult for the agent to ferret out the buyer’s likes and dislikes.
Avoid having too many people in the house. They can make a buyer feel like an intruder. Children and pets should be housed elsewhere during the showing.
Do not try to interest the buyer in purchasing furnishings before signing the sales contract. This can ruin a transaction. After the sale is made, there will be plenty of time for such discussions.
Do not discuss the terms of the sale, occupancy, or related matters with the buyer. Refer these questions to our agent. The answers given may make or break the sale.
