Minute Showing Drill
You may receive a call
requesting a showing in the next ten minutes. The decision to allow the
prospective buyers in is yours. If you elect to cooperate with the showing,
the following punch list may help:
- Sound - Turn off the
television. Soft classical musical is okay, but some people find it
- Sight - Turn on overly
light in the house - day and night. Every window covering should be open
(unless the view is unattractive).
- Smell - Heat a pan on the
stove and drop in a few drops of vanilla
- Kitchen - Make sure dirty
dishes are out of sight
- Bathrooms - Close toilet
- Living/Family rooms -
Hide clutter, magazines, newspapers, etc.
- Bedrooms - Make the beds,
donít use the closet as a hiding place - try underneath the bed.
- Exterior - Keep the
walkway clear, put away trashcans and toys.
- Children & Pets
Outside - You too! Let the Realtor sell your home. If you are there the buyer
may feel uncomfortable voicing objections and their Agent wonít be able to
respond to these objections.
