Should sellers stay home or should they leave when their home is being shown by a Realtor ?
Nicely said, most agents say that when potential homebuyers come to see a home, itâ€™s preferred that no one else is on the premises.
Perspective buyers donâ€™t want to see owners hovering around or hanging out. When they do, buyers get uncomfortable and feel as if they are intruding. This can cause buyers to hurry without gaining a proper feel for the home.
Sellers believe that if they are home they can point out specific important features, provide additional information and that buyers wonâ€™t be able to find everything. The owners feel they can assist â€œsellâ€ the property by mentioning the positives.
A good real estate agent is well trained in showcasing your home, and in reading buyers. He or she knows when itâ€™s best to share information with them. If the owner provides a seller with too much information all at once, this can leave a less-favorable impression. Potentially the sellers could harm the sale by calling attention to something buyers arenâ€™t interested in. At the Denise Rubin Group

Â always show our listings and the showing agent is well groomed in the
area, as well as the facilities of the building and or community. In my opinion it is best for the owners to sit down and have a long detailed conversation with the listing agent prior to listing and point out the great features of their home. A great agent will utilize this information as well as provide more input and knowledge.
Buyers should feel free to discover a homeâ€™s features themselves at their own speed. Some sellers choose to wait in their car or in the lobby, which is better, but still not ideal. Again, if prospective buyers feel like they are being rushed they are going to move on to the next showing quickly.
It is true that, someÂ aspects of a home sale are anything but easy for the seller, cleaning up and leaving the home are way up on this is list. For families with children or around meal timesÂ a showing can beinconvenient. However,Â only one buyer is required and a correctly priced home will sell when the right buyer walks in.
Allow buyersÂ to spend as much time as they want in your home, imagining making it their home. My advise is leave, go grocery shopping, head to the beach or visitÂ a neighbor. It might be a tad inconvenient but let us showcase your home and let the buyer know how they can make this their home.
