From a Seller(s) perspective: Between the hours of 10am -1pm
From a Buyer(s) perspective: have a look "c" one time in the morning around 8am, one time during the evening around 6pm and one time during a rainy day.
Resolve, if you are an Agent, please take a bit of time and look around the home and "STAGE" it; or do not "SHOW" it.
A dirty home is a liability and who want to feel "DIRTY" spending money....Hmm
This might not be the best answer, but it's my honest opinion. The best time to show/preview a home is when a willing prospect wants to see it. Of course common sense should prevail. I would not show a home in the dark. Really any daytime hour is good unless the owner is on the property, then show by appointment. I hope this helps!
From the Fall thru Spring I think that morning and afternoon are best. Evening stinks cause it gets dark so quickly you can't see the exterior. In the summer I love evening tours. Truly if the home is priced right and staged then the time is less important. Best
There really isn't a set time. Of course, consider daylight savings when we are getting dark at around 5pm, you wouldn't want to show a property in the dark. Take in consideration what time your buyer wants to see the house and also if the property is available for a showing on the time you requested.
Hi Lee- It depends on how pretty the house is. If the exterior is in rough shape, might be best to show it at night.
If its in a "rough" neighborhood, maybe also best to stay away from the night showing.
Just my 2 cents.
Bottom line- you show it whenever a preapproved buyer wants to see it...
Thanks, and good luck,
There are a few slot of time I would avoid. First, when the seller(s) is at home, I personally don't like doing that, it maks buyers feel uncomfortable looking around and ask question. Second, when there is no sunlight, it doesn't make the house look good to the buyers. Either I am a Seller Agent or Buyer Agent I would avoid these two scenario.
Haven't really thought of it that way but I think it would be best to show property after breakfast and before lunch and after lunch and before dinner.....We try to schedule at least a 90 minute lunch break between the morning anf afternoon sessions.
Buyers just can't focus if they are tired, hungry, or focusing on something else. Experienced agents know how the read the customer and adjust when necessary.
It kinda depends on the property, doesn't it? I'd prefer to show homes with SW facing views in the morning, so the sun isn't blasting us into the next solar system, and SE facing homes in the morning for the same reason.
