With such limited inventory on the market right now, expect an influx of buyers wanting to see your home, we’ve had as many as 30 people wanting to see a home the first day it goes on the market. This can be stressful and overwhelming to a seller, and trust me I know how it feels. I’ve worked with a majority of sellers over my years in the industry. You may be wondering how do I handle all the agents and showing times and coordinating everything. So here are a few tips that may make the experience easier on you.
If you are still living in the home while it’s on the market, my advice is to leave for the entire day or weekend and come back at night once the frenzy is over. With everything that’s going on, multiple buyers with their agents in the home at the same time, is not allowed but if you want to make sure that all the buyers have the opportunity to see the home, we could do something where we have shorter visits limited to 15 or 30 minutes each. And by the way, this also helps with the FOMO, “Fear of Missing Out right?” when buyers see other buyers trying to get in to see the property, they may be willing to pay even more because of how much interest they are seeing and they don’t want to lose out and it creates competition.
There’s quite a few options to consider which are discussed on my other videos. The good news, is that you’ve got all the control and should expect to sell your home for top top dollar and with the most favorable terms to you. If you’d like more information and are thinking about selling, give me a call, I’d be happy to help!
