Expect a lockbox and for sale sign to appear. Lockboxes are a great way to allow agents to access your home for viewings without sacrificing your security. Talk to your agent if you have concerns about access to your home. The for sale sign can attract potential buyers who may be scouting the neighborhood.
Open houses. Many agents will want to have at least two open houses in the property: one for brokers and one for the public. Having an open house for other agents is a great way to get the word out about the property. Public open houses can let many interested buyers view the property at once; having a lot of people at this event can even encourage buyers to make an offer quickly before anyone else gets a chance.
Maintain your house. It’s not enough to prep the house before listing; the property needs to be maintained so it is ready to show on short notice. This extra bit of effort on your part will give your agent enthusiasm to show the property and free you from stressing about the property when it’s being shown.
I hope you’re having a great day – let me know if you need anything.
