It can be nerve-wracking to entrust your house to an agent, especially when you’re hoping to attract a buyer: don’t let it scare you! Agent-accompanied visits are in your best interest.
The realtor is being paid to sell the house; take advantage of everything they have to offer! Don’t go to the hassle of trying to show a home yourself if this is something your agent can do for you.
Agents can judge buyers with real interest, and weed out the looky-loos. There’s no reason to spend time and effort showing the property to someone who doesn’t have the means and interest to buy it. Your agent is equipped to identify good leads.
They can deal with awkward questions. Having a potential buyer asking about problems on the property or other issues can be awkward for you, the owner. By letting the agent show the home, you help keep the viewing on a professional setting, letting them handle the questions that could be difficult or awkward.
