How to Show Your Home for Sale

With your home priced right and prepared to sell, it is now the job of your REALTOR® to get traffic into the home.  As part of the overall marketing strategy, your agent may arrange a tour of your home for local REALTORS® and perhaps schedule an open house for the public. Your REALTOR® may also run ads in local newspapers, Web sites, and other publications tailored specifically for the type of home you are selling. As responses come in, your REALTOR® will screen out sightseers and half-hearted inquirers only making appointments with the serious, qualified prospective home buyers.

When the showings begin, keep your home clean and ready. Unfortunately, you almost have to look like you don’t live in it. Your REALTOR® will try to give you as much notice as possible (often dictated by the buyer’s agent) before showing your home but be prepared anyway. If people by and are not with a REALTOR®, it’s best to get their information like their names, phone numbers, and email addresses, and refer them to your agent. Also give them his/her card. The more accommodating and flexible you can be, the easier the home can be shown and the sooner it will get under contract.

When a REALTOR® comes to show your home, it’s best if you are not there. Many buyers feel like intruders when the owner is present; they tend to not be as open, honest, and then hurry away. Letting the buyers walk through your property at their own pace will help put them at ease. They will feel free to look around, ask questions, and imagine their lives in your home. If you must be there, let the REALTOR® handle the showing. Sit quietly and be courteous, but avoid engaging the buyer in conversation. The REALTOR® needs the buyer’s complete attention to show your home properly.

REALTORS® are required by law to make your property available to all persons without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, or familial status. Your agent will not discuss any matter that may potentially discriminate against any person.

Getting traffic to your home and obtaining quality buyers to view your home is what I do best.  Call me, Jimmy Eaton at 801-404-0900 today and I'd be happy to come by and present my marketing plan for your home.
