Picture this: Your house hits the market and within just a few hours you have back to back showings lined up for the next 2 days. Welcome to the showing madness! This is the result of the demand created with the help of your listing agent.
Here are 3 things I advise my sellers to do during the busy showing days:
- Plan a mini stay-cation: Book a hotel or plan to stay with family for the day your house hits the market and the following day. That way you can get your house prepped and ready without worrying about going back and forth with the kids, the pets, and all the other things that are important to you.
- Have a Real Estate Agent who can manage the madness. I can provide all the information about the home in MLS and in brochures that buyers can take, and I can field questions from buyers and their agents. I can also request feedback from each showing and will organize any offers that come in. But most importantly, I will pull all the pieces together while you enjoy your day.
- Make a checklist of all the things you want to have ready before you leave the house (lights turned on, music playing, swimming pool staged, etc). Go through that checklist the weekend before your house hits the market. That way you already know everything you have to do in advance. On the day that showings start, you’ll be able to quickly run through the list so your home looks its best.
