You are the key player on the home selling team

Posted April 12, 2011

No one has a more important role in the home selling process than you. Here are some ways your participation can contribute to a successful sale: Maintain the property in ready-to-show condition. Ensure that the house is easily accessible to real estate professionals (lock box and key). Try to be flexible in the scheduling of showings. When you are not at home, let me know how you can be reached in case an offer is received. If approached directly by a buyer who is not represented by a real estate professional, please contact me. Do not allow them into the property unescorted. Remove or lock up valuables, jewelry, cash and prescription medications. If possible, do not be present when the property is being shown. Securely pen up pets, or take them with you. Be cautious about saying anything to buyers or their sales professionals that could weaken your negotiating position, especially regarding price or your urgency to sell. Collect the business cards of real estate professionals who preview and show your home, and pass them on to your Prudential Preferred Real Estate Agent. Let us know of any change in the property’s condition that would need to be disclosed to potential buyers. Be available to review with your Prudential Preferred agent the list price and condition of your property if it has not sold in a reasonable period of time. Contact us at any time with questions or concerns.
