Real Estate Article: When Your Home Is Being Shown  

It is very important to spruce your home up as much as possible so that when buyers visit they will be  favorable impressed.  If you take the following steps you can make your home more appealing and increase the likelihood that it will sell quickly, and for the best possible price.  

Steps to Take Now:

Steps to Take When Your Home is About to be Shown:

Pet Notes:  Although you love your dog or cat and they are part of the family, they can effect your sale.  If Sales Associates can't show the house on lock box on a moment's notice, they can't sell it.  Remembers, some Sales Associates and buyers may be afraid of dogs and cats.  Some people are offended by pet odors - GET RID OF ALL ODORS.

Smoking If you smoke, your home probably has odors.  Clean carpets, drapes, bedspreads.  Maybe even clean your ductwork.  Once it is odor free - DON'T SMOKE INSIDE AGAIN!

Valuables Don't leave valuable items out where a buyer or their children might be tempted.  You may want to use special security for especially valuable items or take them out of the house.  Agents try to watch what is going on, but can't be everywhere at once

To Leave or Stay  If at all possible be gone when your home is being shown.  If you have special things you want prospects to see make sure they are mentioned on your "feature sheets."  If you are in the house, you might make a mistake that would jeopardize your position during negotiation - or maybe even prevent a sale!
