Oftentimes when home sellers interview real estate agents they ask a lot of questions, like how much commission the listing brokerage charges, what the agents’ experience is and their marketing plan. However, it’s rare that sellers discuss how showings are handled.
Sure, the listing agent will advise the seller to make it easy to show their home and keep it clean at all times, but they don’t always discuss what agents or buyer have to go through to schedule a showing.
If a buyer can’t see the home they can’t buy it, so sellers should know what the showing instructions are for their home. Does the buyers’ agent have to track down the listing agent or can they do it online?
It’s not uncommon for vacant properties to lose showings because it’s impossible to schedule an appointment, so home sellers should never assume it’s easy to view their home even if it’s vacant and can be shown 24-7.
