Helping Buyers and Sellers with North Texas Real-Estate

Should I Stay or Should I Go?

imagesMost agents would agree that you not be present when showing your home. Prospective buyers are uncomfortable having owners hovering or milling about. It can provoke buyers to look quickly without gaining a proper feel for your home.

Sellers mistakenly believe home shoppers will miss important features. They also feel they can help “sell” the property by pointing up the positives:

  • Providing too much information in a short time can leave a less-favorable impression
  • You could actually hurt your cause by calling attention to something buyers aren’t interested in
  • If they feel like they are being rushed, they are likely going to move on to the next property on their list

Real estate agents are best-suited to showcase your home. They are trained to read buyers and know when, what and how to relay information. Let buyers discover your home’s features at their own pace.

You want buyers to spend as much time as they wish envisioning the possibility of living in your home someday. So do yourself a favor… go to a neighbor’s home, the library or shopping. The inconvenience will be worth it in the long run.
