Sellers, turn on the lights

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Results

I recently was showing houses where the seller was home during the showing. We arrived at the appointment time. the seller invites us in to the house and retreats to the only room in the house with a light on, the kitchen. We were left in the dark, trying to figure out where the switches were.

Sellers, if you know a buyer is coming, light it up and show it off. Lights make people feel more welcome, and welcome can become welcome home! Turn on a light in every room. It will make a difference.

Great advice.   Lights are essential to a good showing.

Yikes, how about getting out of the house during the showing as well?!

You made me laugh picturing you and your clients in the dark! The seller wasn't properly prepared by his/her agent for how to show the home. Everyone loves light!

I do wish the sellers would leave, sometimes they say things they shouldn't have.
