When your house is on the market, it's
important to be flexible with your showing times. Part of that
flexibility is having the capacity to disappear when an agent brings
potential buyers to look at your house it's just better if you can
leave the house while prospective buyers browse.
You want the buyers to feel comfortable in the house. No
matter how accommodating you are, most people will feel like they're
intruding on your privacy if you are present when they are trying to
evaluate your home and compare it to the others they've seen.
Because of this, they're less likely to linger, less likely to look
around as thoroughly, and less receptive toward viewing your home
After they're done, they may also tell you how much they
love the house, even if they can't stand it. They're not going to
openly discuss things they don't like as they would if it were just
them and their agent they don't want to offend you.
It's to your advantage to have an escape plan visit the
ice cream shop, take the kids to the local park, walk through the
neighborhood, visit a friend you get
Of course, it's not always possible to leave, so if you
absolutely must stay, do your best to be out of the way. Find one
area of the house do not move from room to room. You may also face
questions from the homebuyer if so, answer them, but it's
inadvisable to volunteer any information.
Don't think that you're doing yourself any favors by
sticking around you're not. For more advice on selling your home,
