Any time is a good time
"Now's not the best time ... can we set something up for later?"-these are words that a buyer and his agent do not want to hear when they're out looking for a property.
As a home seller, you retain the right to require appointments and to show the house on your schedule. It's a good idea, though, to either always be ready or not make such restrictions on the home's accessibility. If your home is not readily available to show, you're decreasing the number of potential buyers that see it, and the chances of that home being sold diminish.
To avoid surprise visits, some sellers don't allow a yard sign or a lockbox. Again, this is within their rights, but the easier the home can be shown, the better the chance for it to sell quickly.
If you have special circumstances that call for some advanced notice, like a disabled individual or an infant in the home, scheduling all showings may be a preferred option for you. Let your listing agent know ... conditions like "By Appointment Only" can be specified in the MLS and will be respected.
Everyone likes privacy and a degree of control. Just know that the easier it is to show your home the more likely you are to find a buyer.CONTACT TIFFANY SHARKEY AND TONYA PEEK 972-977-2254 FOR ALL YOUR REAL ESTATE RELATED QUESTIONS.
