Helen Ga Real Estate "Buyers what do you think?"

By
Real Estate Agent with No. Georgia Mountain Realty

When I list homes, I usually ask the Sellers to leave during the showings, as I always felt the Buyers would feel more comfortable looking at the home that way.  True I might get some questions from the showing agent but generally not.  Now today I hear that the Sellers should stay there during the showings.  How do you as buyers or agents feel about this?  What is your opinion?

I think sellers should not be there at least for the first showing, afterwards if they have questions and want to meet the seller it is fine.

Sellers should not be home for showings.  Any questions the buyers' have can be directed to the seller's agent.

I agree with you Beth, I have had horrible experiences with the Sellers trying to do my job!

Yes Linda, I agree.  Did you see GMA's recommendation that the Sellers be there for showing?  I surely did not like that idea, but thought I might be out of touch.  Iam not sure that was Gary keller's recommendation, or if it was GMA recommendation...
