Selling? Start the showings!

After your house has been listed for sale by a professional start showing. Getting your home ready for showings at a moments notice is sometimes required. This can be stressful on everyone especially for families with small children. But having your home available for showings allows your real estate pro the ability to say "yes" to any and all requests to show the property. Normally the more showings there are, the better the odds become that you will receive an offer quickly. As the seller you can have some flexibility too. With today's programmable lock boxes, your real estate professional can actually program the times you wish to allow showings. Maybe a night worker wants to restrict entry until early afternoon or a family with small children may want showings to cease after bedtime. No matter what the hours you agree to show your home are, never turn down a special request or one from a prospective buyer returning to see your home for a second or third time. When you're ready to list your home for sale give us a call and we'll answer any questions you may have with no obligation. Posted by: Frank J. Helderle
