Ensuring Viewings are Successful
Private viewings provide an opportunity for buyers to view your property and get a sense of what it is like to live there. Ideally, you will want them to be impressed by what they see – and motivated to make an offer.
As your real estate team, we ensure we maximize the potential of every viewing. To accomplish that, we advise you on how best to prepare your property, we market it to qualified buyers, and then, at viewings, draw their attention to the great qualities of your house.
When it comes to scheduling, we coordinate with you to select days and times that are as convenient as possible. Obviously, we encourage you to be as flexible as you can, as that will enable more buyers to see your property. Weekends, in particular, are popular for viewings.
Don’t worry about all the details. We take care of all aspects of scheduling viewings.
As we are currently operating during the COVID-19 Pandemic, we take extra precautions to ensure that everyone is safe. This includes making sure that everyone who enters your home has a face mask on and sanitizes their hands. It also includes us opening everything in the home we can before the potential Buyers come in, such as windows and doors, while wearing a face mask and having just sanitized our hands. After the showing, we wipe down everything in the home that has been, or could have been, touched.
Although we do most of the work, there are a few things you can do to make viewings more successful:
- Make sure your house is neat and clean.
- Remove personal items such as family pictures. This makes it easier for buyers to imagine themselves living in the house.
- Find a place to go, such as a park or shopping mall. Buyers are more comfortable if they can view the property without you there.
- If possible, remove your pets. You can take them for a walk, or to a local pet sitting service or kennel.
- Ensure the walkway leading up to your house is clear.
We realize viewings can be a little inconvenient. As your real estate team, we will do our best to minimize the disruptions. We will focus on bringing in serious buyers, rather than those who are merely curious. This speeds up the process and increases the likelihood of a buyer seeing your property, becoming interested, and making an offer.
To sell your house quickly, and for the highest price possible, it is crucial that viewings are done right. Want to learn more about our approach? Please submit the form below or call or email us today to schedule a no-obligation Personal Consultation.
