After pricing your home properly, and marketing it well, the showing requests will start rolling in. This is when the rubber meets the road. Perspective buyers are walking up to your home, hopeful that this may be “the one”! We believe that it’s best to ensure that their experience is the best that it can be. Picture these two scenarios, and decide which one you want for your perspective buyers-
- The buyers walk up to your condo, and their agent tries to locate a lock box. While he or she looks, the clients observe the beer can, and trash that got kicked into your bushes. After fiddling with the lock box, the agent finally gets the keys and they try to unlock the front door to the building. After jiggling the keys for a minute, your neighbor comes out and lets them know that the door is broken and you can just pull it open. The buyers now question the maintenance and security of the building. Once inside your unit, the buyers agent can’t locate the living room lights, because they are on a remote control. When they enter the master bathroom, they find that a prior showing had used your toilet and failed to flush. The listing sheet identifies a shared deck, but the list agent isn’t sure if it’s the deck over the garage or on the roof. The clients are curious about storage, and their agent doesn’t know the answer.
- The buyers approach your home, and they are greeted by Joe, smiling big, and welcoming them to the neighborhood. Joe inquires about their search as they flawlessly enter the building, and when they mention that they are expecting a child, he points out the two parks within walking distance, citing the different features of both. Once inside your unit, they are offered a bottle of water, and given a brief tour of the features that differentiate your home from the other listings on the market. (Remember, we priced it right, so we can cite the other active listings, and explain why your home is the best value on the market.) Joe is available to answer all of their questions, and help them to picture themselves living in your home.
Obviously, the second scenario is more desirable. Unfortunately, if your agent isn’t committed to going above and beyond for you, then the first is more likely. We want your home to be marketed and shown like the gem that it is! Never settle for less.
