Handling Viewings

Ensuring Viewings are Successful

Private viewings, open houses, virtual tours and video walk throughs provide opportunities for buyers to view your property and get a sense of what it is like to live there. Ideally, you will want them to be impressed by what they see – and motivated to make an offer.

As your team, Southern Vermont Realty Group will ensure we maximize the potential of every viewing, regardless of platform. To accomplish that, we will advise you on how best to prepare your property, we market it to qualified buyers, and then, at viewings, draw their attention to the great qualities of your house.

When it comes to scheduling, we coordinate with you to select days and times that are as convenient as possible. Obviously, I encourage you to be as flexible as you can, as that will enable more buyers to see your property. Weekends, in particular, are popular for viewings.

Don’t worry about all the details. We will take care of all aspects of scheduling viewings, as well as planning and hosting open houses, broker tours and virtual showings.

Although we do most of the work, there are a few things you can do to make viewings more successful:

  • Make sure your house is neat and clean.
  • Remove personal items such as family pictures. This makes it easier for buyers to imagine themselves living in the house.
  • Find a place to go during showings. Buyers are more comfortable if they can view the property without you there.
  • If possible, remove your pets.
  • Ensure the walkway leading up to your house is clear and neat.
  • I will make other suggestions specific to your property and market at our Consultation.

We realize viewings ( virtual and in person) can be a little inconvenient. As your team, we will do our best to minimize the disruptions. I will focus on bringing in serious buyers, rather than those who are merely curious. This speeds up the process and increases the likelihood of a buyer seeing your property, becoming interested, and making an offer.

You are trusting us to access your home or property with strangers, and we take that responsibility seriously. We will take all precautions and assure your home is locked up and secured properly upon our exiting.

To sell your house quickly, and for the highest price possible, it is crucial that viewings, tours and opening houses are done right. Want to learn more about our proven approach? Please submit the form below, call or email us today to schedule a no-obligation Personal or Virtual Consultation.
