You Are the Key Player on the Home Selling Team

July 11, 2008

No one has a more important role in the home selling process than you, the home owner. Sure, I will handle the majority of the marketing load, but do not underestimate how valuable you are in the sales process. Here are some ways your participation can contribute to a successful sale:

– maintain the property in ready-to-show condition at all times
– ensure the house is easily accessible to Realtors via lock box and key
– be flexible in the scheduling of showings
– when you leave home for an extended period of time be sure to keep in contact with me in case an offer is made
– if approached directly by a buyer who is not represented by a Realtor please contact me
– remove or lock up valuables, jewelry, cash and prescription drugs
– if possible do not be present when the property is being shown
– securely pen up pets or take them with you
– be cautious about saying anything to buyers or their Realtors that could weaken your negotiating position, especially with regards to your price or desire to sell
– collect the business cards of Realtors who preview your home and give them to me as soon as possible
– let me know of any changes to the condition of your property that could impact value
– be open to review the list price and condition of your property if it has not sold in a reasonable amount of time
– contact me with questions or concerns
