“THE SHOWING”




RELAX





There is nothing more to do. Pick up a magazine while you are waiting. Try to be understanding; the Agent may have several home showings scheduled and he/she may be a little early or late. It’s very difficult to be perfectly precise.





THE DOG





Keep Fido away. Pet lovers may be distracted by your fun loving pet. For those who do not have pets, or have pet allergiesit may be bothersome.



CHILDREN SHOULD BE SEEN AND NOT HEARD





This is a new experience for the kids. Naturally, they are excited, but they will disturb the professional flow of a showing. Ask them to remain away from the Agent and Buyers, to go outside, or to watch TV.





DING DONG





Answer the door as you would for any welcome guest. The Agent will take care of the introduction. If there is a situation that needs mentioning, such as a sick child in the second bedroom, do so now. You may invite the Agent to begin showing the home and then you may excuse yourself.




LOW PROFILE…DISCREETLY REMAIN AWAY FROM THE BUYERS IF AT ALL POSSIBLE





As helpful as you wish to be, your presence will be intimidating. They need to be able to discuss the home freely with one another. The Agent will need this time to learn from the Buyer how they are responding to your home. Your presence can limit that free communication.




WHAT SHOULD YOU DO





Read a magazine; watch a TV program; take a walk outside; continue with a chore.


Pick a room and settle down. When they stop to preview that room you may leave but it is really not necessary.


After all, they do not want to feel as if they are chasing you around the house.


If there’s a room that you should try not to be in it is the kitchen, since Buyers, generally, spend more time there as they evaluate appliances, counter space, etc.


However if possibleit is desirable to have the potential buyer and agent show the property while you and your family are not present. Based on my experience I have found that many agents and buyers are uncomfortable when the homeowner(s) are present.




CONVERSING WITH THE BUYERS





If you are asked a question about the neighborhood, schools, etc. by all means answer pleasantly. However, avoid becoming engaged in a conversation.


Questions regarding terms of the sale should be referred to your Agent. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO PROTECT YOUR NEGOTIATING POWER!!





LET THE “AGENT” WORK-As much as you love your home, DON’T BE TEMPTED INTO DOING YOUR AGENTS JOB!
