Make It Light
Make lighting in your home the "welcome sign"
for homebuying prospects. Please turn on all the exterior
and interior lights, including accent & picture lights.
If there are too many people around during a showing, potential
buyers will feel like intruders and want to hurry through
your home. Take a nice drive or walk with the kids while your
house is being shown.
When your home is being shown, have all TVs turned off. Turn
the stereo off, too, or put on soft classical music. Let Ann
and your prospective buyers talk calmly without having to
yell over any noise.
Around The House...
...is wonderful, except when showing your house. Can spotty
or Tigger go for a drive, too?
This Is Not
A Social Call
If you're present, be courteous and friendly, but don't force
conversation with potential buyers. They're there to inspect
your house, not to be social. Let Ann show your home and do
all the talking.
Nor Is It A
Don't try to sell potential buyers any of the furnishings
that you don't want to take with you. They haven't even bought
your house yet. It could jeopardize the sale.
Trust Ann To
Do It Right
Let Ann negotiate with the buyers about price, terms, possession
date, etc. She has the knowledge and experience necessary
to get YOU the best deal.
