IT’S SHOW TIME!
If your house is on the market, you have to be ready ALL THE TIME.
Picture this: You have no showings booked and leave the house in a rush. Next thing you know, a showing is booked on 1 hours’ notice – NOW, you have to rush home to to put away your dirty dishes, turn on the lights, get the music playing and put the toilet seats down… talk about stress!
This situation happens often, most recently with a client of ours where a last minute appointment happened to be a second visit by the same agent and the same buyer. Fortunately, our client was able to get back to the house in time to prepare it. To no surprise, this buyer subsequently purchased the home! Perhaps if the home owner wasn’t able to get back to prepare the home, the buyer may not have been as impressed on their second visit and decided to keep looking.
All we have to say is – be ready all the time! Make the beds, put the dishes away, wash the floors, and have the music playing softly. Always be prepared for the next showing, make sure the house looks at its best.
