Most real estate agents show a home by opening the door, greeting the buyer, letting the buyer and their agent walk through the house answer a few questions and send them on their way.
Selling a house starts well before an appointment is made. Preparing the home by doing minor repairs and touch-ups so the home shows like a model is one of the first steps. The day of the showing we arrive well in advance to turn all the lights on, open the house up, set the air conditioning at a nice temperature and create an environment that is warm and welcoming. We greet the buyers and show them the features and benefits of the home as well as express the value of the property and the investment. If objections come up, we are prepared to overcome them.
So ask yourself do you want to hire an agent that shows your home or an agent that knows how to sell your home.
